- Japan Images: Ukuleles in Yoyogi Park
October 7th, 2011
I’ve been to the Harajuku-Shibuya area many times but for some reason had never visited Yoyogi Park. I was really surprised at its size and also the sheer number of Tokyoites squeezed in to this place on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
- Japan Images: Homeless in Shibuya
June 5th, 2010
Hattori-san is a well-known homeless man who has been in and around the Shibuya for more than 15 years apparently. Although some say he has recently moved to the Shinjuku area. Hopefully he is okay – seemed like a nice enough person and wouldn’t accept any help from anyone.

I was taking photos around the Center-Gai area of Shibuya in Tokyo and this guy walked right in front of me.
I was momentarily cursing him before I realised it made for a great photo opportunity and then all was forgiven ^_^
- Japan Images: Lovely Legs in Shibuya

As I was leaving Shibuya train station in Tokyo I couldn’t help but notice this long pair of legs, I mean girl ^_^, sitting beneath the mural that adorns the side of the Tokyu shopping centre above the railway.
- Japan Images: Shibuya Free Hugs
December 10th, 2009
We were on our way back to the train station after a morning wandering (read: clothes shopping and visiting Loft for the 35th time) around Shibuya.
As we approached the main square outside the station there were about 10 girls/guys giving out free hugs and generally running around being very happy.
- Japan Images: Meiji Bride
November 29th, 2009
I shot this image in the grounds of Meiji Shrine (明治神宮) in Shibuya, Tokyo.
As a keen photographer and Japanophile, it’s days like this, when you come across such a stunning ceremony in another country, that puts a big smile on your face.
