Obama, Aso and Guns in Ueno

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

Today is Obon Buddhist holiday.

Most people are off and either taking it easy, or

returning to see their family.

I hadn’t ventured into Tokyo for a few days due to other plans, and rain, so

I in the late afternoon, walked around Ueno and Asakusa.  I needed a new pair of

rather large Zori (Japanese sandals) and there aren’t many places that carry a 30 cm, or size

12 in Tokyo.  It was hot, and I wandered around for a little bit.

I wanted to go a wandering today, but the weather had other ideas.

I am stuck inside on this rainy day, so I’ve chosen to upload a few more pics.

Hopefully, Wednesday, the weather will be more perfect more exploring about.

Wandered around Roppongi area during the day the other day.

Roppongi is a pretty seedy place.  I don’t often go there, but the area

takes on a completely different character in the daytime than night.

Wandering the baking streets, surrounded by concrete and metal, shooting

what needs to be shot.

Ginza is Back

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

People know of the bright lights of GInza.

The luxury brands, the department stores that sell what ever we are looking

for at a premium.  But that is not what these are about.  These are the back streets of Ginza.

The ones that becomes jammed with people in the afterhours.  I wandered the street in that strange

twilight hours.  As the workers were shuffling off to prepare their watering hole before the guests arrive.

Shimbashi, Concrete Old and New

Just next to Ginza lies Shimbashi station.

A famous old used camera shop stood on one of

its corners for many years.  Now gone.

Back to Concrete Reality

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

After my Florida dreaming the other day, it back to the reality of my concrete

surroundings.  Bounced on down to Shibuya for a crowded afternoon amongst the throngs

of people.  Concrete, coming down and going up, alls busy in Shibuya.
