Random Tokyo photos

I think that after many years living in Japan I have lost a little bit my capacity to be surprised while walking in Japanese territory. To avoid that I try to maintain my curiosity alive by asking, learning, reading and taking pictures each day of what I see and catches my attention. Here you have some random photos of little details in Tokyo that activated my curiosity. To those of you who have traveled to Japan: what did specially grab your attention at the beginning? what did you take pictures of? To those of you who have been living here for a while: What is something that keeps surprising you each day?

    When I went to Japan, it was the people that caught my attention. I was just curious as to how they do things and the way they dress because it’s really unique. Well, maybe for a gaijin like me. I was also interested in the stuff they sell in their konbini, food and drinks. Japan is an interesting place.

    I love random collections of photos of Japan. I did a couple posts of ones I took around town yesterday. Interesting photos.

    That’s quite brilliant that they have blind joggers in the park, I wish we had volunteers to help with that here also in large numbers.
