The Power is On* (film)


Ok, I’ve got less than a month left in Japan. (In my head: NOOOOO I don’t want to go yet!!!!!!) As soon as I finish my tests next week I’m going to be super 積極的 (outgoing) and explore EVERY day and take as many pictures as I can so pleeeeease give me your recommendations or requests of anything you want to see before I go! Once the year is over I’m going to compile some of the best photos into a book and if you like you can buy it (you want to, right??). : )

The last week I’ve been kind of busy finishing up school so nothing too exciting in this post. I played with self-timer again as a way to use up my last few shots and took pictures of my food so I could drop off my film to be developed before school. Haha LAME….

Bento I made the other day.

I found this Tofu Burger mix at the 100yen store the other day. All you have to do is mix it with strained firm tofu and then fry the patties. SO GOOD.

I did NOT make that shot.

I can't really explain this face.

I put up this picture of me cracking my knuckles on my flickr the other day and it got so many responses so I was like, “oh I should try to do something cool like that again!” And…I think I should find better uses for my last few pictures. Hahaha.

OH by the way, there’s a cool new post up on THE PUBLICS about stickers in Tokyo using my photos so check it out por favor! お願いします!


Anyway I’m off – going to a campus festival today in JINBEI – should be fun. I hope to hear from everyone reading this! Give me some ideas/ requests! Thanks : )

  4. Ooooo, you’re taking requests! Well I love your “Koenji series” since I used to live nearby in Nogata, and my best friend is from Koenji…she lives here now but her family still lives there. We spent lots of time in the shotengai and izakayas there.

    I’d love to see some photos of some of the fashionably dressed twentysomethings that seem to be everywhere in Tokyo….Harajuku, Omotesando, Shibuya….Shimokitazawa….

    I love all of your photos so nandemo ii yo:).

    Hope you soak in as much as possible during your final month! Have fun!

    • I was brave and asked someone for a picture yesterday and they let me so perhaps more photos of fashionably dressed twentysomethings will start appearing on here! : )
