Streets of Roppongi
Going for photo walks this time of the year is good because there is usually nothing much else going on and the cold weather keeps most people indoors. It’s a chance to rediscover places you thought you knew well or explore new places altogether. When I first came to Tokyo a long time ago one of my favorite pastimes was to take my old orientering compass, set a direction and just walk out. I would get lost time and time again but it was a great place to get to know the city on foot. Still to this day I rediscover some of the old places where I got really lost many years ago, it’s like seeing an old friend almost. This was before the days of GPS and smart phones, these days you can do the same thing with the phone in your pocket. The other day I was walking around Roppongi, only the main streets, but I took these photos to make most of the light and crisp weather! Enjoy!
