EVERYDAY LIFE IN JAPAN - 6
These photos were taken during August and at the beginning of September, this is a last taste of summer 2009 (right now (1:45 AM) we are in a middle of a typhoon, heavy rain ... worse forecast is expected tomorrow morning just when we go to work...Gambarimasu! ).
I sorted the photos by themes this time :
Shots taken after a day at the office in Shibuya.
Time to relax with a beer and yakiniku for the salary men.
Sometimes we can find some graffiti in Tokyo (in Yokohama the long wall dedicated to it has been painted white... end of an ere)
Under the bridge, the river ...
The iceman truck, there's an ice factory not far from the office. Kanji for ice is æ°· (kooli), and water is æ°´ (mizu), so easy to remember.
Our usual kaiten-sushi in Yokohama : the basic and good maguro (tuna).
Kit kat , mango purin taste...
Bananas direct from Okinawa, ã†ã¾ã„ï¼(umai : gooood)
Cake set in Daikanyama with a sand timer for the tea.
A good avocado hamburger, typical Japanese food ;)
Some Kit kat in vending machine
I did not know we had a special curry in France o_O
Disney has also its vending machine, spotted in Haneda Airport.
Quiet airport on this pic, but it was an other story during the silver week.
Beach Party Time :
We went to Oiso for a "fishing party".
Yoga was also on the menu
As well as eating :)
At Work :
Building currently an in-house application to retrieve and display top-secret datas from the Ninja Tools and other services produced by the Samurai Factory.
Lunch time :
I like to go out for lunch and have a walk in the neighborhood. This park is not too far, about 10mn, I like to rest for a little while there.
It is nice to find some green in the heart of the city.
Random stuff :
The Olympus-pen has good press everywhere. I have to say it is really nice, I especially like its vintage style.
Lego sold in a conbini (convenience store) ! I almost compulsively bought a box as I was a hardcore Lego player as a kid.
I saw this mac box and the week after an "old" flower iMac was at the same place, I guess someone in the neighborhood upgraded nicely!
It was kind of sad to see the flower one in the garbage, it's almost a piece of collection (for a geek I mean...)
And to finish with, Yokohama :
A little bit of China town
And the Yamate :
The old colonial neighborhood.
Very peaceful area.
They have a nice Olympic outdoor pool over there, I promised myself to swim in it and then completely forgot about it; and now of course they closed it until next summer...
