Tsutsuishi: Japan’s most dystopian train station?

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 23:30:07 +0000

Tokyo’s modern and often horrendously busy train stations are marvels of both design and staff dedication. Structures that are beautifully efficient, and efficiently brutal. Move out of the city, however, and the experience can be a very different one. In Hokkaido, for example, there is the calming quiet of passenger-less stations, along with the decaying […]

An elderly Tokyo trio

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 23:30:00 +0000

A rest and varied reactions outside Tsukiji fish market.

Bulls on the road in rural Japan

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 23:30:48 +0000

You know you are not in Tokyo anymore when a bull passes by. A feeling that’s even more pronounced when it turns out the massive beast has an equally mammoth best friend.

A kamikaze Tokyo drunk?

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 23:30:33 +0000

After a clearly committed, self-destructive drinking session, this young fella couldn’t have found a better (or should that be worse?) place to crash out.

Tokyo butcher’s look

A Tokyo butcher having a butcher’s.

A lovely old bar and its even lovelier old owner

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 23:30:43 +0000

This place has been in business for over 50 years. Originally it was a ramen shop, but for a long time now it’s just been a basic little bar. And yet despite all those years behind that wonderfully retro counter, the owner somehow manages to remain as warm and welcoming as ever.

An abandoned hotel once occupied after the war

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 23:30:16 +0000

Built in 1929, the Ikaho Kanko Hotel must have been quite a place to stay in its day. Situated in a popular hot spring resort, the cultural heritage listed structure was originally designed to cater for the region’s foreign visitors. A surprising concept, especially so in those days, and one that took a rather ironic […]

Tokyo lunch time tension?

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 23:30:32 +0000

The cook was merely curious, but the customer’s look is much less clear.

Ginza glares

Thu, 08 Jun 2017 23:30:32 +0000

Meeting people and making friends in Ginza.

Tokyo rock and roll intoxication

Tue, 06 Jun 2017 23:30:44 +0000

The Motörhead poster seemed very apt, although something much quieter was likely called for when consciousness eventually returned.

A Tokyo street portrait showing the passage of time

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 23:30:23 +0000

Situated down a narrow little Tokyo side street, the shop below is wonderfully old and ramshackle. It’s a building that appeals so much I’ve passed it more times than I care to remember, and detours enabling me to drop by again are never a chore. The owner, however, I’ve only seen twice. Well, clearly, anyway […]

Very drunk in a very small Tokyo bar

Thu, 01 Jun 2017 23:30:52 +0000

Three sheets to the wind in a bar that would barely hold more than three people.

Namie: A nuclear ghost town reopens after 6 years

Tue, 30 May 2017 23:30:22 +0000

On April 1st this year, trains started running again from Namie station. For a town hit by a major earthquake and then nuclear contamination, this was obviously a big step. Even more significantly, however, it was also the day when all restrictions were lifted, meaning residents are now free to live in the place they […]

Go fish?

An old Tokyo portrait

Thu, 25 May 2017 23:30:45 +0000

An old lady, outside her old home, in an old part of Tokyo.

A tiny, lost in time Japanese restaurant

Tue, 23 May 2017 23:30:30 +0000

Most of the little bars and eateries featured on Tokyo Times are unknown treasures from the outside. All too often, it’s only possible to see if an establishment is worth drinking in when the door is slid open, meaning a quick, almost instinctive decision is necessary. But the interesting mix of bar and restaurant below […]

Tokyo car park drunk

Sun, 21 May 2017 23:30:01 +0000

The ambitiously early revelry resulted in a similarly early mid-afternoon slumber.

The distractions of a traditional Japanese bar

Thu, 18 May 2017 23:30:40 +0000

When it comes to the stress of work, life and the increasing madness of the world around us, traditional little bars can very often offer a brief, but welcome distraction. The only trouble is, the all-too-common addition of a TV, means such diversions invariably don’t last very long.

Tokyo sulk

Tue, 16 May 2017 23:30:52 +0000

Some days out are definitely better than other days out.

An old corner of modern Tokyo

Sun, 14 May 2017 23:30:45 +0000

Older, less shiny Tokyo is fascinating, and fortunately, despite the often dizzying pace of change, wonderfully dated corners of the capital can still be found. In this case, quite literally.
