Four Nights in Japan

Photos from Tokyo, Japan, 14-18 of April 2016 with brother and myself.


Senso-Ji Temple in Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan. How we wound up here? We stayed in Ueno area, which is really close to Asakusa stop on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line. I had no idea this was Tokyo’s oldest temple.

The red creature says three fingers is all.

I remember I was tired but as I was getting closer I forgot about that and all my energy became focused on the immensity of the structures in front of me. Maybe I was dreaming.

This was in a door before entering the Temple grounds area.

A parking area for bicycles? I think. A lot of bicycles.

Restaurant joint sign in Shibuya area.

Food in window display for a restaurant. I didn’t get to try as much food as I would’ve wanted but I did eat tempura shrimp, ramen and udon.

Bikes everywhere. That’s always a good sign in a city.

Minami Senju area. We rode our bicycles by the edge of the river on the left hand side of the picture all the way to the tower.

Street art stuff in Shibuya.

I just had to.(Inside of Metro)

This young model was being photographed in the famous scramble area in Shibuya.

I should’ve obeyed. I put down my coffee for one second right in front of this sign for this photo, I turn around and my drink was gone. There’s always a worker cleaning the area.

How I learned English living in Japan

英語学習者のみなさんへ。英語の勉強方法を書いてみました。英語で書いていますが、読んでみてください。日本語訳がいるようならあとで付け足そうと思います!!皆さんの役に立ちますように! So I am not sure if I am allowed to talk about my way of studying English because I am not fluent in English. but I guess this could help people learn English (or even another language in general, to readers who speak English as your native language.) so I’d love to share it…

Hiroshima – Obscura Coffee Roasters

Obscura Coffee Roasters in Tokyo’s young Sangenjaya district has a branch in Hiroshima. The location is sweet as it is in the city center and easy to access to department stores and the Peace Park. It opens at 9 a.m. and has plenty of seating. The front window on this quiet side street brings in sunlight […]
