2011 started!

Hokekyoji temple (法華経寺) in Nayakama, Ichikawa(市川市中山).

I went to Midori Kindergarten (みどり幼稚園) right next to this temple. I'm glad I started my new year visiting this temple.

 This manhole cover reminds me of Yayoi Kusama.

Stone balancing artist. Thought I could look up this artist's name easily, but have been unable to find it so far.

Public Market in Granville Island.

Realized I didn't take so many pictures. Too busy with enjoying the beauty of the town, that's my excuse. BTW, for meals in Granville Island, I would recommend The SandBar. The food there was impressive.

It was definitely good to be back to my first foreign country/city after 16 years. Time is a strange animal indeed :)

Ichinyo is in town!

Ichinyo、熊本・八代より上京。品川駅で再会し、Jamie Cullumのライブまで半日まったり東京散歩。Hexagon Cafeにて。お店のお姉さんたちとも久々会えて嬉しかった。

メニューで悩むIchinyo。

また写真の撮り合い(けんかか?)しましょう。
