EVERYDAY LIFE IN JAPAN - 4
A little bit more than one month since my last article of the "Everyday Life in Japan" serie. So prepare for a big mix of photos!
Let's start with some shots taken at Daikanyama.
It's a quite fashionable place with many shops and some interesting architecture.
I really like the night shots we can do with the Nikon D5000.
Do you remember this one, I already took it from an other point of view.
Yep, hair salon have to be fancy too!
Let's have a dinner in Yutenji, a very nice and peaceful neighborhood, good to place to live I think, expensive though...
What would you choose?
Would you enjoy some sea weed? I got used to it and it's very healthy.
Anywhere I go, I can find a cool fixed gear :)
On the way back to the station, a Koban (police box), I wonder what the vertical tube on their bikes is for...
A jump to Yokohama not far from home with a local matsuri :
Wifey catching goldfish : a popular game here, the "spoon" to catch them is made of a thin paper, so you have to be quick and careful to catch some fish before the paper si destroyed.
Morning walking, time to put out the futon, this family found an unusual way to dry them...
A taiko show by kids.
Kids after their Sunday baseball game (here it's said : hyakyu) :
Sudden food craving : missing the good doner kebap from France (yeah I know it's from Turkey food but still very popular in France). The ones we have here in Japan are quite different so I ended up to cook it myself! (with a little (big) help from wifey:)
(Of course the best ones I had were in Istanbul...I'd like to visit again this city)
I can tell you it was good!
Our micro-garden :
YEAH some berries! (4?...)
New born spiders : they are actually less than one millimeter...
Yokohama : a fuzzy shot from the iPhone, sorry, I did not have the D5000 at this time...too bad... They are carrying a Mikoshi (portable shrine)
Kit Kat : special Yokohama edition! For the 150th anniversary of its overture to the world. They chose a salty caramel taste : very good and better than some of their strange previous experiences...
Let's take some altitude : an other iPhone shot from the big wheel in Yokohama (this is of course the LandMark Tower (300m)).
Back to the ground, one of the first summer day : nice way to escape the heat :)
You know you are in Japan when you reach the Ultraman train station... I forgot the actual name of the place...
This dude was still living in the ocean few hours before, very beautiful blue, and very good taste!^_^
Talking about fish, I had the pleasure to meet some cousins of my wife and they welcomed us with a great sushi lunch, ã†ã¾ã„!
One last food photo, an unusual sashimi during a "communication party" with co-workers :
This is raw chicken, a first for me! I was not very tempted at first, but actually with the soya sauce it tasted almost like tuna (which is also called "sea chicken", so the loop is done...).
I hope you enjoyed this random mix, next episode next month!
