EVERYDAY LIFE IN JAPAN - 1
Slow Sunday here... I often take snap shots with no particular goal, but I thought it could interest you a little bit (or not at all...).
I took these ones during the past few weeks, it will give you a glimpse of everyday life here.
So here we go :
Spring has come, well, Sakura are not in full bloom yet
but still like other folks we took our bento to eat in the park near the FC Yokohama Stadium.
This one is a peach tree, just in front of our apartment!(but the birds are faster than us to get the fruits...)
Yokohama by night, Club Wife... hum... I am not sure the wives of the guys who go to this club would appreciate this name. (*)
A taste of the 50's and 60's with this theater (near the club). Nice that this kind of place can still "survive". (*)
Dogs have a strange life in Japan, you can see them dressed or carried like babies, this is one's got the "backpack" treatment... Look at its sad eyes...
If you are in Yokohama at the end of April, don't miss this show (La Machine) I am sure it will be a great street performance.
Problem on my train line... Can't even reach the platform! It does not happen often though.
I've seen this mysterious train 2 times... It looks very "cool" (especially if you are a densha otaku - trainspotter)...
In the train, some people feel like at home ...
The park just 20m from home, you can see the Landmark Tower (300m) in the back.
Miki, the neighbor's cat, I like him ... but he does not :(
Our bikes! we keep them inside during rainy nights...
Yep, you can't escape it on this blog : a fixed gear bike spotted last night in Harajuku.
And food! If you are in Shibuya I recommend this restaurant : Okinawa food, my favorite set : the Shabu Shabu Katsu! It's here
That's all folks! I think I will post this kind of article once in a while.
