I loooove Tokyo !





 I'm back from Tokyo.... meaning my body is here in Andalusia
but my mind is still there ! Also I blame it on the jetlag but I was unable
to sit properly in front of my computer and sort my pictures. So here is
a first post with a mix of pictures meanwhile I decide on post themes to develop later.

Tokyo is a fascinating city...there is so much to see, eat, smell, observe...
and what's funny is that I still can't say why I loved Tokyo so much.
I guess it's a mix of sensations...mainly esthetic...but let's talk about this later...

Just now let's enjoying those pics together !

Je suis de retour de Tokyo...enfin mon corps est ici en Andalousie mais
ma tête est toujours là-bas ! C'est sans doute la faute au jetlag mais j'étais
incapable de me mettre devant mon ordi pour trier mes photos. Alors en attendant,
voici un post de photos en vrac avant de faire des posts plus précis par thème.

Tokyo est une ville fascinante....il y a tellement à voir, manger, sentir, observer...
et ce qui est drôle c'est que je n'arrive toujours pas à dire pourquoi j'ai tellement
aimé Tokyo. Je crois que c'est un mélange de sensations...essentiellement 
esthétiques...mais je reviendrai là-dessus plus tard...

Je vous laisser regarder les photos !

I'm not even telling how much I love Japanese food !

 It was a relief to see that even taxi drivers in Tokyo can get lost....

Quel soulagement de voir que même les chauffeurs de taxi à Tokyo peuvent se perdre....

So happy to see you posting now about your visit to Japan! My impression of Japan (never having visited there) is that the culture is very artistic in every area of life, which would of course appeal to your artistic soul. The way they present their food is a constant study of color, shape, form, design . . . and it seems to be that way with almost everything. Your sampling of photos on this post is making me hungry for the rest. Your photography is wonderful.

Welcome Home Lala! Japan looks as FASCINATING as I thought it would. I wish I could 've met up with you there. I thought you would love "The incredibly delicate packaging of cakes at Mitsukoshi store." I do!
