神保町古書店街のグルメスポット②(鴻 オオドリー/かねいち/味噌鐡カギロイ/天麩羅はちまき) 昭和の面影を残す外観に惹かれて撮影。スープカレー、鰻、味噌焼き、天麩羅。どの店舗からも神保町ならではの味わいや歴史を感じます。 #retro_japan_ #nostalgic_shooter #nostalgictokyo #oldtokyo #street_vision #japan_daytime_view #昭和 #昭和レトロ #昭和感 #昭和ノスタルジー #レトロ建築 #街角 #レトロな街並み #ノスタルジー #神保町 #東京 #東京散歩 #東京散策 #神保町古書店街 #オオドリー #カギロイ #天麩羅はちまき

1970年代の秋葉原の歩行者天国の空撮画像。 今とあまり変わりないような気もしますが、秋葉原の歩行者天国は一時中断したものの再開し、現在も日曜日は中央通りで開催中。現在パフォーマンスや物品販売は中止されてます。 電気街だったこの街は今やメイド喫茶に押されてますが、混沌としたこの街が大好きです。 #昭和レトロ #秋葉原 #空撮 #空撮画像 #モノクロ #白黒写真 #モノトーン #monochrome #monotone #blackandwhite #grayscale #akihabara #akiba #birdseyeview #oldpostcard #retrospective #oldtokyo #graphicdesign #graphicdesigner #uxdesign #japanesetradition #traditionaljapan #hipstamatic #architecture #architect #birdseyeview #hipstamatic #tokyofantastic

Utagawa Hiroshige, 1857. Fukagawa Susaki and Jumantsubo, from 100 Famous Views of Edo. A powerful eagle soars over the wintry snowscape of Edo Bay. Considered one of the “best three” designs of this series, conventionally ranked with Ohashi and Foxfires at Ôji (according to Henry Smith II). We can see here how strongly Hiroshige’s prints influenced major western artists, such as in the cropping of the large foreground figure and the unusual (bird’s eye!) viewpoint. Hiroshige’s prints were collected by van Gogh, Manet, Monet, and Whistler, among others. It is difficult to overstate the influence of Hiroshige on the development of late 19th century western art.

消えゆくレトロ商店街 象のオブジェでおなじみの西荻窪の仲通商店街から、名物商店が消えてもう何年経っただろう。昭和の雰囲気を残していた「西荻デパート」も2年ほど前に解体され、跡地ではマンションの建設が進んでいる。いったん更地になってしまうと、古い建物の記憶は驚くほど急速に薄れてしまう。懐かしい風景が心の中からも消えてしまうとしたら、なんだかとても切ない。 #retro_japan_ #nostalgic_shooter #nostalgictokyo #oldtokyo #street_vision #japan_daytime_view #昭和 #昭和レトロ #昭和感 #昭和ノスタルジー #レトロ建築 #街角 #レトロな街並み #ノスタルジー #西荻窪 #東京 #東京散歩 #東京散策

Utagawa Hiroshige, 1857. Komakata Hall and Azuma Bridge from 100 Famous Views of Edo. A cuckoo flies in the misty rain on summer day, his movement echoing the red flag below, which represents an advertisement for a cosmetic. There is beautiful woodgrain in the sky and the location of the clouds differ on each print. The placement of the hototogisu above Komakata Hall would have brought to the viewer’s mind a famous love poem by the courtesan Takao.

Kobayashi Kiyochika, ca. 1879. A woman braces her umbrella against the rain and a man waits out the storm next to his jinriksha in this view of the Umewaka Shrine. There are no black keyblock outlines used in this work, which feel strikingly modern and innovative. This no-keyblock style seems to directly presage some of the techniques and designs utilized by Kawase Hasui, especially for some of his snow and rain scenes.

Haneda Airport International terminal is a gateway to Japan that gives you the preview of what to expect.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you go to the fourth floor you’ll be welcomed with seasonal flowers. There, vermillion-red pillars will catch your attention at a traditional Kabuki Stage and you’ll slip back in time and enter the world of Edo period or Old Tokyo.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🎥 @erica_sarisari ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #japanesefood #discovertokyo #tokyotrip #tokyojapan #japanfocus #kyotocity #japanfoodgopan #japanculture #japantrip #kyoto #japan #kyotojapan #japan_vacations #japantravel #tokyocafe #japanlife #japanlover #japanstyle #japanesestyle #lovetokyo #hanedaairport #edo #edoperiod #oldtokyo #tokyotravel #travel #travelling #japanvlog #japanlovers #reclocjapan

11.03.2019 ~ Shibamata, Japan Shibamata (柴又) is a neighborhood on the eastern end of Tokyo, not far from the Edogawa River which is the natural border between Tokyo and Chiba Prefecture. The town retains its old-school charm from yesteryear and is a perfect break away from modern Tokyo. One of the main attractions to see is the Shibamata Taishakuten Temple not far from the station Source : https://www.japan-guide.com/e/e3047.html #shibamata #torasan #torasanstatue #otokowatsuraiyo #oldjapan #oldtokyo #taishakuten #temple #jinja #shrine #japanesetemple #tokyo #japan #wheninjapan #mieeinjapan #mieejourney #explorejapan

Do you want a nice view of Asakusa and beyond for free? Just go at the top of the golden building (Asahi beer headquarter building) next to the golden flame (no, it's not a poo 💩)! You will just have to order an Asahi beer to be able to have this amazing view from the 22nd floor. Not too bad, is it? #asahi #nightview #asakusa #oldtokyo #japanesetradional #japonia #japanrevealed #japonya #japones #japonais #japaneseculture #ilovejapan #lovejapan #nihon #discovertokyo #lookaround #explorejpn #fatalframes #places_wow #canonbringit #canonjapan #theimaged #bestjapanpics #whatisee #rawurbanshots #japanfocus #浅草 #nightviews

I remember that we passed this alley and we even didn't know about it! It is a really nice place for pictures and for food too! The atmosphere is just so different and you are right next to main roads!
