Photographs from a small group of islands

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.

Tsukiji fish market’s most miserable office?

Thu, 11 May 2017 23:30:33 +0000

Despite being incredibly small, the office below can’t claim to be the littlest, as this previously featured workspace comfortably matches it. But considering the mess, it might have a decent shot when it comes to the most miserable.

An abandoned and slowly decaying Japanese clinic

Tue, 09 May 2017 23:30:55 +0000

Outside the big cities, Japan’s ageing population can make some areas feel like a very different country. They are visibly older in every way. Far less hectic too. And combined with urban migration, the number of residents is noticeably dwindling. With that in mind then, it’s not surprising that abandoned structures already dot the landscape. […]

A beautifully lit outdoor bookshop

Sun, 07 May 2017 23:30:20 +0000

Some of the shop’s most illuminating titles?

Life in a Tokyo alley

Thu, 04 May 2017 23:30:21 +0000

Old, crumbling and abandoned Tokyo

Tue, 02 May 2017 23:30:29 +0000

Due to the increasing problems of a shrinking population and urban migration, it’s not really surprising that abandoned homes, along with countless other kinds of crumbling buildings, are now common sights outside Japan’s major cities. Yet despite the capital’s continued growth, and the often prohibitive cost of land, it’s also not that unusual to see […]

Shinto priest: A colour portrait

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 23:30:27 +0000

Recently, when putting together a set of traditional Japan images, I went back to the photograph of this intense looking Shinto priest from December 2012. A portrait that at the time seemed much better suited to black and white. Now, however, I’m not nearly so convinced. In fact, if pushed to pick one or the […]

Tokyo ramen restaurant stares

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 23:30:19 +0000

Waiting for lunch while also offering withering looks.

The silence of an abandoned Japanese village

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 23:30:54 +0000

Abandoned buildings have the ability to conjure up a whole host of sensations. Some are terribly sad. Others can be genuinely nice places to spend some time in. But one thing they all have in common is their silence. A lack of sound that can actually be a little unsettling at times, especially so after […]

Tokyo: A daily struggle

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 23:30:21 +0000

Each day is clearly a struggle, but it’s also equally clear that the resultant challenges are very stoically taken on.

Little Tokyo bar looks

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 23:30:02 +0000

A face that is arguably as full of questions as the bar is customers.

Tokyo tourist trap?

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 23:30:18 +0000

An old Tokyo bar and its similarly aged owner

Sun, 16 Apr 2017 23:30:59 +0000

Tokyo is almost constantly in flux. Buildings go up and down, businesses change and the gentrification of so much of the city is utterly relentless. Mercifully, however, the more Tokyo changes, the more little pockets of it somehow remain just the same. Like this traditional old bar not far from the capital’s more central hubs. […]

Angry cleaning on the streets of Tokyo?

Thu, 13 Apr 2017 23:30:35 +0000

Some scenes, sometimes, simply don’t make much sense.

Simple Tokyo street food

Tue, 11 Apr 2017 23:30:12 +0000

Simple food, prepared in a simple structure, at the side of an old shopping street.

Tokyo youth culture, to corporate culture?

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 23:30:53 +0000

Tokyo disappointment or utter despondency?

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 23:30:06 +0000

When one door closes, it’s sadly not a given that another one will suddenly open.
