Going on a motorcycle ride in Japan through Tokyo and the back country was something I never thought in my life I would say I did but here I am! We rode to a city called Kawagoe, where the buildings and structures are old as 1600’s #kawagoe #oldtokyo #motorcycle #tokyo #japan

Green Grass Hamamatsucho, Tokyo 3/5 On the last morning before my flight back I stayed in Hamamatsucho. It has a station of the Monorail to Haneda Airport. Later I realized my flight back is actually from Narita and I had to hurry from Haneda to Narita. My arrival in Japan was Haneda, so I was unhappy to leave and got that mixed up. I felt stupid, but happy to go back to Tokyo from Haneda. Before I tried to find one more Showa kissa in Hamamatsucho. Two were closed and Green Grass was the only choice. It is mainly a bit boring business area. Not the most charming part of Tokyo, just practical. A quick coffee was the choice, which was okay blend coffee. Very worn off and stain covered seats and no special deco. Also heavy smoking when it is full, but I was the only customer at the time. They mainly serve curry rice, which seems to be good, according to reviews. Owned by a old couple. I felt a bit spied on by the woman and completely ignored by the man. Before leaving I talked a bit to the woman, who was kind of nice after all, maybe just curious why a foreigner visits this very local shop. Many shops I visit are very local.To compare great, bad or mid quality shops is part of my research. #hamamatsucho #greengrass #green #伊豆半島 #showa #junkissa #kissaten #kissa #coffee #travelphotography #taberu #kohi #grass #local #oldtokyo #レトロ #日本 #coffeeshop #vintage #oldfashioned #1972 #Kaffee #cafe #curryrice #japon #local

昭和レトロ館 吾楽俊(Showa Retro Center) in Toyama 富山 Hard to find museum in Toyama. Small, fully cramped rooms. Much things hanging from the ceiling. A bit dusty, but many treasures to found from Showa to Meiji. The owner worked for electronic company Sharp before. A whole room is dedicated to radios etc. from Sharp. Upstairs there are mainly clocks and music boxes. 100 year old music boxes of various functions were shown. Some by Edison, pretty impressive . They are not Showa though. My favorite object in the museum was a TV which was colored in a bright red. This special and very expensive TV is covered in Japanese lacquer from Wajima. Just very cool. Once again I was the first German to go there. It happens to me a lot. French, Italian, American mostly share my interests. In Germany the Showa maniac is basically not to be found. This museum has many foreign visitors though. They come from China, Taiwan and Russia (there seems to a Russian community in Toyama as signs in Russian were seen in town). #Toyama #富山 #meiji # #showa #showamuseum #retoro #昭和レトロ館 #吾楽俊 #sharp #menko #tall #heisei #70s #60s #oldtokyo #レトロ #日本 #showamaniac #japanesetoys #oldfashioned #80s #80sjapan #70sjapan #60sjapan #50sapan #40sjapan

日本海食堂(Nihonkai Restaurant)in Toyama It further writes as Shokudou and International Hihoukan A mix between a restaurant and a showa museum. One of the best places I went to. The owner is very nice. He even gave me 2 Kawai Naoko LPS, dagashi, a small Super Sentai money pouch and a Japanese towel with the restaurants logo for free The restaurant was opened 50 years ago by his father. Hard to say if a foreigner visited there when his father was in charge, but since the son operates I was the second foreigner there. Only a man from Italy visited there before. I told him about my interests, favorites of Showa and he said that I was sick (in a positive way). A good connection was made quickly. The meal choice was Omurice. Besides that miso soup, tofu and more. Last but not least a coffee with free waffle roll. All delicious, especially the miso soup. I will go again someday. #Toyama #nihonKai #showarestaurant #omurice #伊豆半島   #showa #showamuseum #retoro #日本海食堂 #japan #travelphotography #taberu #monkey #70s #60s #oldtokyo #レトロ #日本 #showamaniac #japanesetoys #oldfashioned #80s #80sjapan #70sjapan #60sjapan #50sapan #40sjapan

Kissa File 11. My 11th Junkissa on this trip. Tomorrow I have to fly back to Germany, but in the morning try to visit one more. Small review of Coffee Aloma in Asakusa, Tokyo Just in for a short blend coffee, before taking a early shinkansen to Toyama. A warm atmosphere. Lots of local older people who seem to visit there every day or at least very often as they knew each other well, even though came in at different times. 5/5, just from my 10 minute stay. Would go again, but I'm not sure if I will go back to Asakusa for a long time. It seems to be ruined by a certain kind of mass tourism. It got worse since my last stay in 2014. #asakusa #coffeealoma #breakfast #伊豆半島 #showa #junkissa #kissaten #kissa #coffee #travelphotography #taberu #kohi #elegant #local #oldtokyo #レトロ #日本 #coffeeshop #vintage #oldfashioned #1972 #Kaffee #cafe #comfy #japon #yasashi

Transformation is inevitable when travelling. Spend time in environments alongside people and places different from your roots. It will change your perspective, teach to adapt and at times rough you up. You will be different after everything.

Happy Mother’s Day! Thank you, Mother and Father, for bringing me to this world as your 4th and youngest child 👶! I am so grateful for that ♥️. These two pictures are very precious to me as these are the only baby pictures of mine 🤣. (I bet my parents were too busy raising their four young children to take photos of the youngest baby 😭!) お母さんありがとう!4番目の末っ子として👶僕をこの世にもたらし育ててくれた、母そして父に感謝の気持ちでいっぱいです♥️。僕の赤ちゃんの頃の写真はこの2枚だけなのでとても貴重です🤣。(当時、4人の小さな子供達を育てていた両親、赤ちゃんだった末っ子の写真を撮っている暇など無かったんだろうなぁ😭。) #mothersday #mother #thankyoumom #thanksmom #babyphoto #youngestchild #showa #showaera #tokyo #oldtokyo #母の日 #お母さんありがとう #お母さん #赤ちゃん写真 #末っ子 #昭和 #東京 #バンビ

Zoshigaya is a quiet, old Tokyo neighborhood squeezed between the city centres of the big city. 700 year old temples lined by cherry blossom lined streets that really holds on to this city's history. This used to be home for me, about a 5 min walk from my first photo. A lot of locals don't even know of it's existence which makes it still a hidden travel treasure. P.S I took a photo in the exact same spot on the same date in 2017 as the last pic. Weird, right?! | I have a Japanese apartment tour video up at YouTube.com/oliviaaimes .

Memory Lane (aka Piss Alley) is a narrow street, home to about 60 small bars. It is an incredibly charming little place, full of history and character, in the heart of Shinjuku. Most of the hole-in-the-walls places hold a maximum of 10 or so people, crammed up in a small rectangular space. As a matter of fact, when one diner has to leave, we all have to get up. We sat down where we could find some space and I met a frenchman (Bonjour Laurent) and a funny japanese man who thought I was pretty smart speaking three languages. If you are looking for a glimpse of old Tokyo, walk down through Memory Lane's cramped alleyways and it will transport you back, if only for a few moments. . . . . #memorylane #shinjukuvibes #shinjuku #lovetotravel #lovejapan #loveshinjuku #pissalley #tokyo #tourist #adventuretravel #bringmeback #oldtokyo #traveltheworld #awesomedestination #photography #nightlife #japantourism #instatravel
