Finally – Rain
I can’t even remember when we had rain last in Tokyo, the weeks around New Year was just dry as a tinderbox. Touching anything was a sure invitation to a hit of static electricity and I can imagine sales of softening skin lotions must have gone through the roof. We’re not being helped by the fact that most house heating systems in Japan are air borne, electric heaters and so on makes our rooms super dry in winter. But finally, on Friday, we got some rain, and even more on Saturday. It’s not often that I am happy to see icy cold rain in mid winter, but this time it was really needed! I took this photo yesterday afternoon at one of my favorite photo spots in Omotesando.
