Streets of Tokyo

POSTED BY DANNY CHOO On Sat 2011/05/14 00:38 JST in Japan

Apart from the usual photos in the A Week in Tokyo series, I also take a load of street photos that I've been meaning to share for a while. I've always been in love with Tokyo's urban architecture and never get bored looking at the same streets every day.

Anyway, this new "Streets of Tokyo" series will always be a collection of photos that I take while running out to meetings and wot not - not going to write about each of them though and say "this is a street" and "this is another street" ^^; How many places do you recognize?

One thing that you will notice about the photos is how clean the streets are. Sometimes there can be a lack of dustbins which is a pain but most folks are good at taking their rubbish home.
This was unlike the area that I was brought up in back in London which always had rubbish, newspapers and poo lying around. There's hardly ever any dog poo lying around in Tokyo - saw one brownie the other day which must have been the first time in 4 years or so!

Was back in London a year ago after a 5 year absence. Had changed much and was nostalgic. Still spotted the nostalgic poo-in-the-road though ^^;
Was nice to be back in the UK but have always wanted to live over here and love it - want to die on a tatami mat as they say.
Where do you live and are you happy where you are?

On another note, many folks ask if they can trace my street drawings for their manga that they are working on - feel free to trace or use for an assignment or whatever.

Poll for the question in the first photo.
