These are the remaining photos from my explorations before and between classes the other day. These are from all around Tamachi, Hamamatsucho, and Shinagawa.
I don't see full parking lots often.. I've heard that it can cost around $400 a month to park in Tokyo.
This crosswalk near campus plays an old and slightly spooky tune when the signal turns green to let people know they can walk. I really like it.
A boat canal midway between Hamamatsucho station and Tamachi station.
I might have to google this one.
Across the street from Hamamatsucho. I loved the picture of the girl but I have no idea what those posters are about...all I know is that it says something about New York up above. Anyone know?
Same location as the last picture, looking up.
When I first arrived in Japan with my mom in September I took I.D. photos for foreigner registration purposes in a booth just to the right of this crazy building.
Looking up from the ground below, this building looks infinitely tall. I've stopped to look at it several times.
It still surprises me occasionally to see cars driving on the left side of the road.
I wonder if the people on the other side of the walls could see...that would be moderately embarassing.
I like reflective surfaces in cities
Someone had a party..
I forgot about these last two, they are from several days ago when it rained a lot. This is taken on an outdoor walkway at this huge restaurant/ business complex near Shinagawa station.
I hope you’re enjoying the film photos. I know I said I would limit myself to one roll a week but I just can’t resist. Even if the pictures turn out bad I still feel so excited when I go pick up the film.
Yuko and I have made plans to go to Taiwan in the very near future, which I am terribly excited about. If you have ever been there can you please leave some recommendations in the comments section or email me? I would really appreciate it! Thanks!
