An Offering of Bananas

Posted in Places by tokyobling on December 31, 2011

Here’s an unusual set of offerings on display in front of a restaurant in Ginza, bananas! It is common to see little altars in homes and shops around Japan during the new year but usually it is native fruit, drinks of rice cakes, the mochi for which we are warned to eat carefully every new year. This is the first time I have seen bananas as royally displayed as this! I like it! Found in Ginza, earlier this week.

Wako Window Display

I have featured the Wako building in Ginza window display a few times before and they never fail to put up the coolest decorations in town. How about this disco-ball lady? I was lucky to catch it during set up as well as after it was finished so my photos might be a little different from what you would see there right now. Still, I love this gorgeous display of glitter and velvet. Enjoy, and sorry for the crappy reflections. Shooting window displays at night is hard.
