Lotus flowers and turtles in Ueno Park TOKYO

I took these photos in July
There are a lot of lotus flowers blooming on the Shinobazu lake in Ueno Park now.
We can see lotus flowers opening only in the morning.
They close in the afternoon.

This is in the afternoon
in the morning

A thalamus only have remained.

There are a lot of turtles in this lake.

Welcome to Tokyo Ueno Park!!


Beautiful ! The Seto inland sea.

I went to the Seto Inland Sea in May.
I took photos on the ferry from Matsuyama(Ehime Prefecture) to Yanai(Yamaguchi Prefecture).


There are a lot of small islands in the Seto Inland Sea.
There is also 3 bridges linking Honshu and Shikoku island over the Seto Inland Sea.
But I like the ferry better than the bridges.
There is a nice breeze blowing on the sea!
Welcome to the Seto Inland Sea!

*I took these photos in May 2010

A Handrail in the JR station


This is a handrail for stairs in the JR station.
It looks like waves.
It is safe.
And I think it is beautiful design. 


Tokyo Sky Tree and STARWARS

This is the photo of the Japanese new  TV tower 「Tokyo Sky Tree」(under construction). It will be the tallest tower in the world ,the height of 634 meters.

Next golden is the Asahi breweries building. The shape is like a jag of beer.
I took this on the Kminarimon street in Asakusa.

Don't you think that this combination is similar to the caractors in STARWARS 'R2-D2 &C-3PO'? 
You may say the shorter is white and taller is gold! 

No problem! 
It is just an image.

And It will seem like a lightsaber when it will be illuminated!
Welcome to Tokyo Japan !!


Sweets for Hina-matsuri (the Doll Festival for girls) ,so cute!!

             Candies for Hina-matsuri

Have you ever heard Hina Matsuri?

March 3rd is Hina Matsuri in JAPAN.
I'm afraid that it's too late to post it on this blog.
Hina Matsuri is the festival to make a wish for girls to grow up in good health. They set traditional dolls Hina-ningyo(doll) on a red step-like stand . The pictures in candies on the dish portray the emperor and the empress dolls which are set on the top of the stand. 
Blue doll is the emperor.Pink is the empress. 
Candies like these are called "Kintaro-ame"(ame means candy).Kintaro-ame is a candy cane before cut. Same picture appears no matter where you cut it.

 I'm not a native speaker, so sometimes my English may be a little strange.
You think I seem like 'TRUE Japanese' to excuse myself,
don't you? But I'm afraid that you will find me to be poor in English. I have to study English harder than ever before.I intend to study hard!  I should !! I must !!! Because that I want to explain something more complex about Japan.

In any case,  I will post many interesting things!! 

Wait till
