Photographs from a small group of islands

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.

Japanese mother and daughter looks

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 […]

An old, cluttered and character-filled Tokyo office

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 23:30:10 +0000

In operation for 80 years or so, this fabulously dated little office has clearly seen some changes. But, while the current owner obviously hasn’t been there since the beginning, some of the clutter may well have.

Empty Japanese scarecrow eyes

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 23:30:08 +0000

Stare, if you dare, into the empty eyes of a Japanese scarecrow.

A unique looking Japanese man

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 23:30:01 +0000

In Tokyo I tend to stand out, but only because I’m pasty and foreign. Some people, however, have the wonderful ability of being able to stand out by simply being themselves.

Japanese political protest and the public’s reaction

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 23:30:53 +0000

This weekend sees Japan vote in its 3rd general election in the space of 5 years. A sign, one could argue, of a healthy democracy. Or at least one could if the ruling Liberal Democratic Party hadn’t held near continuous power since its foundation back in 1955. Two minor blips totalling a measly 4 years […]

Painting scenery behind Tokyo shutters

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 23:30:58 +0000

His surroundings may well be suburban and grey, but the scenery inside his head is thankfully much more inspiring.

Urban cherry blossom, in autumn

Tokyo street drinker

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 23:30:19 +0000

A meander of sorts in the company of a One Cup.

Traditional Japanese pickles being made and sold on the street

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 23:30:32 +0000

Old, very traditional food, made in an old, back to basics way in buckets on the street.
