Ameya Yokocho: Back in the old days, when Tokyo was not a huge bustling alpha city, people used to shop in their neighborhood shopping alleys which catered to everything, be it clothes, food, footwear or medicines. Some of these alleys till exist and are still just as busy today as they were back then. They are a perfect spot to experience the ambience and spirit of every day Tokyo and regular folks going about their business, hustling and making a buck. Take an afternoon stroll and you don't know what treasure you may find. Will it be a shoe of dried star fish with potent powers?! Subway stop- Ueno Cost- free Pro tip: bring small change and be prepared for crowds. #tokyorightnow #wamazing #tokyotokyo #discovertokyo #touristinfotokyo #expatliving #exaptsintokyo #protip #insiderview #tokyoinfluencer #ameya #yokocho #shoppingguide #afternoonstroll #oldtokyo #ueno #japan #rwc2019 #olympics2020 #rugbyworldcup2019 #rugbyunion #itspot

Atago Shrine in Minato-Ku, Tokyo.⠀ This is an amazing shrine nestled amongst the skyscrapers in the centre of Tokyo. Its a big climb up the stairs and well worth it to see what is at the top. This place is what makes Tokyo such an amazing city. The old next to the new, the history and tradition right in amongst this modern metropolis.⠀ #Tokyo #shrine #oldtokyo #nightphotography #cityscape #tokyonight

津雲邸①(青梅市) 6月の青梅散策の時にポストしていなかった津雲邸。衆議院議員を長らく務めた青梅出身の代議士、津雲國利の邸宅です。昭和初期、京都から宮大工を呼び寄せて建造した和風建築で、おもに政財界の名士をもてなすゲストハウスとして使われていたそうです。 #retro_japan_ #nostalgic_shooter #nostalgictokyo #oldtokyo #street_vision #gris_premium #japan_daytime_view #historichouse #tokyocameraclub #japanese_stylehouse #japaneseoldhouse #japanesedesign #woodenhouse #昭和 #昭和レトロ #レトロ建築 #街角 #日本家屋 #ノスタルジー #昭和建築 #歴史建築 #和風建築 #木造家屋 #津雲邸 #青梅 #青梅市 #東京 #東京散歩 #東京散策

After yesterday’s frenetic shopping district, a day of peace in Yanaka - so many beautiful temples, shrines and tombs, dating from the 14th century, in a quiet suburb of Tokyo full of craft shops and design studios #yanaka #shintoism #oldtokyo

Love old shots of favourite cities. Shibuya crossing in the early 1950s. Who could ever have imagined the construction chaos that reigns today 🙄?? #shibuyacrossing #oldtokyo

呑みネタ。 王子、十条といったら、山田屋か斉藤酒場か。少し古いネタですが山田屋レポ。聞きしに勝る凄まじい昭和感。ホール担当のお父さんに仕切られつつ着席。安定の瓶ビールはキリンか、、。テーブル天板が素晴らしい!目黒通り沿いのアンティークショップなら10万は下らない。欲しい、、。アテは下町の古居酒屋のラインナップ。其れが嬉しい。山田屋と言ったらハムカツ。ソースドパドパで。お酒は鶴齢がエライ揃ってましたが、ここは無視。お酒、と言って出てくるモノを常温で頂きます。雰囲気⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️。なぜか惹かれますこういう店。今夜も乾杯! ・ #王子 #山田屋 #東京居酒屋 #居酒屋探訪 #居酒屋 #キリンラガー #赤星 希望 #japanesestyle #japanesegastropub #gastropub #izakaya #oldtokyo #oldjapan

More Hiroshige today! I will let Dave do the talking: This little print is a very unusual item in our HangaClub series - although it was printed here in our Mokuhankan workshop, we did not do the carving. We made this print using an antique set of blocks, dating from sometime in the pre-war period (perhaps the 1930s). We have been haunting auction sites for such blocks, and were recently able to make a purchase of a number of old sets, some in useable condition, some warped and aged beyond repair. This block set wasn't perfect, and there are some places where the wood has been knocked or worn a bit, leaving some slight defects in the print, but we felt that it was still worthwhile using for production.⁠ ⁠ It was the Takamizawa Company - at the time the pre-eminent workshop for doing such work - who produced this block set. All of us here at Mokuhankan were astonished when we inspected the carving; not just the microscopic level of detail, but the taste and finesse of the work. Although we here have no reason to be embarrassed by the work we are currently doing, it has been a bit eye-opening to realize that there are mountains still waiting to be climbed!⁠ ⁠ As for the image itself, there is an interesting twist. It was created by Hiroshige, and entitled 'Clearing Weather after Snowfall at Massaki', from a series of famous places in the capital, but when Takamizawa made their production, they made it 'Snowfall at Massaki', by simply cutting the blocks to create white flakes all over the image. Our printer was not so happy about that change, as it is much more difficult to print!⁠ ⁠ #Hiroshige #ukiyoe #ukiyo #Mokuhankan #mokuhanga #woodblockprint #woodblockprints #printmaking #Japanesetraditionalprintmaking #washi #snow #snowfall #oldTokyo #Edo #Asakusa #Japan #JapaneseArt #Massaki #浮世絵 #木版館 #木版画 #版画 #江戸 #浅草 #東京 #摺師 #広重 #雪

吉祥寺いせや総本店。と、三鷹の母さん。 吉祥寺と言えば井の頭通り沿い、公園近くの緑に囲まれたここでしょう。もう40年くらい前から、チョコチョコ通わさせてもらってます、、東京は千歳烏山とか、荻窪住まいだったので、、。今はビルなのね〜。東京駅前丸ビルスタイル。然し上の住人の事は気にせず煙モクモク。江戸っ子は鰻屋の煙でメシが食える、とか言ったもんですが、此処も駅から煙が人を呼ぶ呼ぶ、、。 ・ 今回は初の二階。座敷ですが大抵汚い。汚さも老舗のうち、とは絶対おもわない。食べカス、ゴミ、シミ、、老舗程、小綺麗にこざっぱりと、古い材だけど磨かれている感じ。そうでありたい、、。 と思ったのも刹那、赤星にはかないません、大先輩。高い席から頂きます! ・ 一階では必ず赤星と、モモ焼きとトウモロコシ。そして焼酎に注ぐ謎の液体。このセット。今日は大人数なんで盛り合わせ。レバーウマー、やっぱりタレか。なんかなめこ汁呑んでるし。次〜。 #くぐつ草 行きたい!酒あるか?カレーも美味い!あー青春! #眠民の餃子 食べたい! #ペンギンカフェ あるの? #サトウのメンチ は無理だ、、。 今思うと文化服装学院在学中、三鷹と吉祥寺は、ホームタウンのような気がします。 吉祥寺の、アナクロなんだけど文化的な匂いや雰囲気。とても好きでした。ガロの系譜か。 ・ 三鷹は第二のお母さんに大変世話になった、、。文化服装学院在学中、徹夜で細目やって。場所の提供から、朝ごはん、、本当にお世話になりました、、。何時もニコニコされていたご主人さま。そしてお母さんは時に厳しく鋭いお言葉。でも平等に優しい眼差しで我々、合宿所気分の訳の分からん輩を迎えてくれた度量。若いヤツラに、厳しくも温かく見守る目線。子供を持つ身になり、ほとほと、感謝の念絶えません、、。有難うございました、、。 ・ #吉祥寺 #いせや #いせや総本店 #三鷹 #文化服装学院 #ファッション工科基礎科 #くぐつ草 #傀儡 #くぐつ草カレー #japanesestyle #japanesegastropub #gastropub #izakaya #oldtokyo #oldjapan

Today I went to Ameyoko, which is one of the biggest shopping streets near to my home. The name "Ameyoko" is a short form for "Ameya Yokocho" (candy store alley), as candies were traditionally sold there. Alternatively, "Ame" also stands for "America", because a lot of American products used to be available there when the street was the site of a black market in the years following World War Two. Amazing street food and finally I found some decently priced peaches 🍑 #japan #japanesefood #japanese #tokyo #notatourist #totallyatourist #oldtokyo #greenteaheaven #matcha #matchaholic
