October Daily Life in Tokyo
A little laneway in Minami-Shinjuku right near Tokyo's famous fashion school, Bunka.
I was recently photographed for a new mook that is coming out soon, and the shoot took place at the photo studios at Bunka (where beautiful Japanese fashion magazine Soen also shoots some of their fashion spreads).
Cuties at the photo shoot!
Hanging out in the laneways in Sangenjaya.
A sunny day overlooking Shibuya. I will never get sick of this sight.
I took this shot today in Sangenjaya. There was a mini matsuri taking place and the streets were filled with takoyaki stands, buskers, chalk art, handmade craft stalls and makeshift tables.
Have you seen Yuzuko-chan 's new book? It shows you how to make cute drawings with post-it notes. Ever since receiving the book from Yuzuko-chan I've been trying to make little post-it works, but I realised I didn't have any post-it notes. When Yuzuko-chan heard this she prepared me this amazing little 'post-it note sampler'!
Lunch at Mr Y's family home. Hijiki, Renkon and Onigiri are some of my all time favourite foods.
Our beds at Mr Y's family home. These are those incredible straw filled pillows.
Beers at the kotatsu.
Eki-ben manga, craft and beer at the kotatsu.
This shop is like the Japanese version of Bunnings. On the first floor they have all the manly tools and Bunnings style items but on the second floor they have kitchen and bathroom items plus a giant craft section! Imagine Saturdays spent up here while waiting for your better half to select power tools. Love you Japan. (If only there was the Bunnings-style sausage sizzle...)
Waiting for our bikes to be fixed in Shimokitazawa.
I love this little lane on my daily walk home.
Did you have a nice weekend Sandwiches?
P.S. You can see some more daily life images on my instagram account.
