EVERYDAY LIFE IN JAPAN - 7
No, I did not give up on this series of "Everyday Life in Japan". Last one was quite a while though, so the following is a collection of photos taken the last 2 months.
As usual here, no real common theme but just random shots I took from my day to day life...
Minato Mirai by Night.
I am never bored of this place.
And I guess I am not the only one.
Many groups of photographers come in the area to practice.
This one was taken from the Washington Hotel, an average comfortable, not expensive hotel and well located (near the Sakuragicho station).
In my neighborhood, this house was a ruin for the last 3 years (at least), finally they cleaned it. In 2 days there was nothing left.
Vegetation vs construction : 1 - 0
Yebisu beer : a good one! and beautifully designed.
Twitter going mainstream with an article in Brutus magazine. Don't forget you can follow me at twitter.com/jeromesadou! I tweet stuff like this : (sometimes) :
The guy with the big case choose the steps... the guy with the small case the escalator... mmm What to think ?
1971 - 2009 - 2012 ? gah!.... well, quite unfortunate or done on purpose ??...
If you wonder this is fried fish and it is good :)
Ramen, the first plate I offer to my relatives visiting Japan for the first time!
And what do they bring to me? Saucisson, for the win :)
Tonkatsu is also a rather common plate here.
We spent one night in a ryokan in our last trip in Tottori.
If you come to Japan, try to spend at least one night in this kind of hotel/pension.
An other random shot from the iPhone and tweeted at the time : a ganja t-shirt for 5 y.o kids in a well respected store :)
In a sushi restaurant, once you finished you have a chance to win something for each plate you ate.
I won this little samurai guy representing the restaurant brand.
Why have a dog or a cat as a pet when you can have a goat ?! [goat is yagi in Japanese]
Tottori style, I guess!
This fruit is called Zakkuro, funny to eat and spit the seeds.
In Nagano, somewhere in the mountain...
This guy comes always with his bro.
but actually I shot only one...
A verrrrrrry long way. We did a u-turn
when we reached this gate.
Crabs from Tottori taking their last bath ...
Sorry guys ...
Back in Yokohama, not far from the apartment, a rather genki mikan tree!
Swine flu sign at IKEA
Street shot taken by my dad from the Excellent Hotel in Ebisu (not excellent but comfortable and close to the station).
One more by my dad
The classic oil tank, each 2 weeks (in winter) I fill it from the truck that comes in our street on Saturdays. We use the oil for the stove.
We had a cruise on the Sumida river.
Shots from the boat.
This is Odaiba
My bro practicing at a battling center for the first time. He was not bad at all.
Visit of Roppongi Hills with the family.
Let's go to the top
Not easy to take good shots and without a mirror effect...
This is the Tokyo tower, as high as the Eiffel tower : 300m (slightly more actually if I remember well)
The Landmark tower (cf. shots from Yokohama) is also 300m high.
No transition : a typical Japanese salary man at work :)
And a new pet at home!
It changed from the spider
Did I say my wife was a great cook ? :)
Found this shrine in Ebisu.
Near a big avenue but in a street I never took before.
When I have some time, I like to walk randomly in Tokyo.
Well, 58 photos for this article...
I hope you liked some of them
Yes ? then -> stumble/digg/retweet! Thanks ;-)
