We are not sure where this picture was taken. It has a certain Ueno-vibe to it. So, maybe it´s Ueno…. If you like this pic and generally fancy a little bit 80ties nostalgia or generally like things a little bit retro definitely visit Ueno. Do you see the cowboy standup? 300 Yen for a bowl of Oyakodon? That was cheap😊 You should try Oyakodon by the way. It´s scrambled eggs and sautéed chicken on top of some rice. It tastes great, but has a rather dark name “oya” means parent and “ko” means child…
Nel cuore della città di Tokyo nel quartiere di shibuya tra gli immensi grattacieli sorge il bellissimo tempio "Meiji Jingu" in un bellissimo parco all'interno del quale non si avvertono più i rumori della città ne si scorgono i palazzoni della metropoli, un angolo di paradiso in pieno centro. Poco prima di arrivare al tempio c'è un intera parete di botti di pregiato sake ormai vuote che molti produttori hanno donato ai monaci non per fare festa ma per i riti shintoisti di purificazione e abluzione che qua vengono celebrati. Esattamente di fronte a questi "kazaridaru" si trovano delle botti di pregiato vino francese donato da produttori della Borgogna in segno di rispetto e amicizia tra Francia e Giappone.
In the heart of Tokyo city in the shibuya district between the immense skyscrapers stands the beautiful temple "Meiji Jingu" in a beautiful park where you can no longer hear the sounds of the city and you can't see the buildings of the metropolis, a corner of paradise in the center.Just before arriving at the temple there is an entire wall of prized sake barrels that are now empty and many producers have donated to the monks not to celebrate but for the Shinto rituals of purification and ablution that are celebrated here.Exactly in front of these "kazaridaru" there are barrels of fine French wine donated by Burgundy producers as a sign of respect and friendship between France and Japan.

Bonsai Sensei, Rural Japan 🎏
______________________________ #MeetingPeopleOf : Bonsai Sensei, Rural Japan 🎏
Going to the parts of Japan only reachable by boat... The final frontier of Japan. Not many people live here—not many, anyway, on an average tourist’s radar. But wisdom is packed on these islands: Majority of the folks here are past 90 years old... more 90+ people than what most countries could even have. And with that, on this island, also comes with old traditions held on—longingly. Most of the youth have left the rural isles to seek opportunity in the cities like Tokyo, making these isles slowly becoming that of the past—and traditions, with that. Will there be a place in the world for things here like, say, a bonsai plant master? A unique passion that is seemingly a thing of the past. Bonsai Sensei Hinata has been curating bonsai plants with tender care for many decades, a family role that has been carried on by many generations, with some bonsai plants outdating even his grandparents. He will, unfortunately, be the last of his kin’s: His children have already moved to Osaka for business. “The consolation is that my bonsai trees will outlive me,” he says, over a meal of some country-cooked seafood, puckering clams on a grill and some eel. “My hope is that one day someone will see my plants, and think ‘Wow... these are beautiful.’ And will connect with time and nature through my plants.”
