Nothing blingy today, I just loved the orangey light over these streets of Ginza so I had to take some photos and share with you. Technically the first few photos are of buildings to the south east of Tokyo station, Yaesu. Recently there’s been quite a lot of new construction in the area but there’s a few older building still around to show us what Ginza used to look like as it was rebuilt after the war. One of my favorite areas of Tokyo!
This my friends, is my absolute favorite when it comes to Japanese traditional sweets. The Ichigo Daifuku (苺大福) is a strawberry inside sweet bean paste covered in a layer of powdered and pounded sweet sticky rice paste. It is much better than it sounds and even people who are usually not into red bean paste enjoy this one! There’s several other variants where instead of strawberry you have other sweets and fruits or even salt or coffee! But this is the best one. Found in a Ginza sweet shop. Expensive but well worth it.
No special theme today, I’ve had a busy week so last night to clear my head I took my camera for a walk. Here’s some snapshots from today and this past month, all from around Tokyo Station of Ginza, early evening. The shot of the Tokyo Station dome is inspired by the poster promoting it that can be found around the city right now. Tokyo Station really is one of my favorite buildings in Japan!
