Bold and eye-catching Tokyo cosplay blues

Colour co-ordination taken to the next level?

Drunk and asleep amidst some urban autumn colours

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 23:30:40 +0000

The warm hues of late autumn, and the cold, temporary bed of a Tokyo drunk.

An old chef in his old Tokyo restaurant

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 23:30:54 +0000

In his tiny kitchen, in his similarly small restaurant that seats about 7, this old chef has been cooking 6 days a week for the last 46 years. And while he obviously can’t work forever, he’d very likely go on for another 46 years if he could.

Unwanted attention in Tokyo

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 23:30:02 +0000

The sight of scouts attempting to lure young women into some of the more murky kinds of employment isn’t uncommon in Tokyo, especially in the city’s entertainment districts. To be completely fair, however, each approach is done openly and in public. There’s no physical contact either — at least none that I’ve seen, anyway. But […]

Tokyo cat shopkeepers?

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 23:30:56 +0000

These two cats clearly weren’t content with merely securing the cream.

This is Japan

Timeless Tokyo drinks, and drinkers

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 23:30:54 +0000

I’ve photographed this place many times — my favourite shot up to now being this portfolio one, I think. But due to the bar’s timeless looks and large array of regulars, the quest for a new favourite happily continues on.

An old fashioned Tokyo tailors

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 23:30:11 +0000

In an era of fast fashion and in-store alterations, it’s surprising how many old school tailors there still are in Tokyo. Shops that are seemingly a part of the local community, and offer a more personal service that is clearly appreciated.

Tokyo darkness in the light

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 23:30:44 +0000

Even in the light, the city can sometimes feel like a dark place to be.

Tokyo public telephone performance

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 23:30:28 +0000

You put your right leg in, Your right leg out: In, out, in, out. You shake it all about.

Photographs from a faded hot spring resort

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 23:30:01 +0000

The tourists still arrive, but the numbers aren’t, and never will, be anywhere near what they once were. Plus those that do turn up generally relax and enjoy a soak in the comfort of their all-inclusive hotels — all too often only venturing out to buy some obligatory souvenirs by the station before they are […]

A David Lynch-like room in an abandoned hotel

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 23:30:17 +0000

The hotel in general wasn’t all that photogenic. Too much vandalism, and too many identical rooms. But this fantastically Lynchian scene in the once plush bar made the whole endeavour well worth the effort.

A sword wielding Tokyo bar owner

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 23:30:47 +0000

When asked how the food was, I bowed deeply, and in the most reverential tone possible, told him it was the best I had ever tasted.

A Tokyo bank’s ad campaign versus the desperate reality?

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 23:30:52 +0000

Life’s winners, and losers?

Abandoned cable car memories

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 23:30:09 +0000

For over 50 years now, this cable car in west Tokyo has sat totally unused, but unlike so many abandoned structures, it’s still surprisingly intact. And together with having once chatted to a lovely old bar owner who rode in the cabin during the brief period it was in use, it’s not in the least […]

A suburban Tokyo bus stop

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 23:30:41 +0000

The tedium of waiting for a bus is certainly no different in Tokyo.

Old, incredibly decrepit, Tokyo

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 23:30:16 +0000

Sights such as the one below never cease to intrigue me. Not only do they contain unknown stories, but personally I feel they have a very distinct, melancholic beauty about them. To add to their interest, they are also the exact opposite of almost everything that Tokyo is famous for. An element that in some […]

A Japanese woman passed out drunk in a dirty alleyway

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 23:30:32 +0000

When Friday night drinks run through to daylight on Saturday, it’s almost inevitable that things are going to get messy. And passing out drunk in a grubby little alleyway probably warrants a mention when it comes to messiness. Although as desperate as her situation clearly was, there was possibly some consolation in the knowledge that […]
