Harjyuku/Omotesando areas are always interesting for street photography. Tons of people with events going on and they are all dressed up. Being the Golden Week holidays, I expected that there would be a lot fewer people but it didn’t seem that way. MAC had an interesting marketing event going on and that added some colour […]
I finally got to snowboard in Hokkaido, it was something that I always wanted to do. Managed to do a 2 day snowboarding trip over the weekend. Hokkaido is one of the most popular areas for skiing and snowboarding and is known for its powder. Snowfall in Japan has not been good this year so I […]
Another big draw of the Tokyo Motor Show is the “companions”. Every major exhibitor will have someone either handing out brochures or explaining about the products. Thank you for visiting!
I always try to make the pilgrimage to the Tokyo Motor Show if I can and this year there were quite a number of concept cars and hybrid/electric concepts on display. Here are some of the highlights. Do go visit if you are in town!

Been visiting the tulip fest in Chiba a couple of years now. It’s usually around April and it’s pretty neat to get out and be in a sea of colours. Just some photos of the day.
I had a colleague visit Tokyo over the weekend so I brought him for a little sightseeing. Being a Sunday, we visited Harajyuku and Shibuya. It’s been a while since I’ve visited Harajyuku and I’ve noticed that there are now more non-Japanese now that are into cosplay. For those who are not familiar, cosplay is […]
One of the places that my travels take me is Hong Kong. Sometimes referred to as the Pearl of the Orient, I can see why. It has the charm of the new and the old. Much like Tokyo where the modern and traditional co-exist. One cannot visit Hong Kong without talking about or trying the […]
