When in Tokyo in Pictures
In the morning, trying to find Asakusa
D loving her time in front of Tokyo National Museum
Strolling around Ueno Park
Asakusa at last
Ueno at night
While waiting to get food
While you were sleeping
This is Odaiba
Little girl happy
This is Ginza – ready for an architectural trip!
Not Hermes, but Renzo Piano!
Not Makimoto, but Toyo Ito!
Not Dior, but Fuksas!
Its not the Prada, its the building! Ok, maybe a little Prada won’t hurt
Went to Yokohama with some nice Japanese speaking people, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to get there. It was purposely just for the sake to see the Osanbashi Pier, designed by Foreign Office Architects. I drooled at the pictures of the project when I was a student, so it was quite thrilling to step on those timber deckings.
Yokohama Terminal, baybee!
Would’ve been a sin as an architect not to go there since it was just an hour away!
One favorite pix with favorite girl I knew since I was six!
With my other favorite girl that I knew since she was born
With my guy
Inside the column-less space
With the rest of the gang
Cherishing our youths
Day Four & Five
Had some Japanese breakfast, just for 300 yen
My girl in the morning
Crossing the famous crossings at Shibuya

D is getting some hand warming lessons from D
This is where we spent our leftover yens
OK, at this point I’m already tired of uploading pictures. There are lots more but I hope you can sum up of what an amazing holiday I just had. I’m trying to think the things I might’ve left in previous entry, if I missed something great to say about the city, but I guess I’m no travel writer. I just write from my experience, a very personal experience, between me and Tokyo.
