I had a co-worker in town this weekend helping me with some things that work and I took him out for a few hours to show him a bit of Tokyo and grab some dinner. We didn’t have a lot of time so we headed over to Shibuya. It is always lively there with lots of see which makes it a nice place to get a quick Tokyo experience.

Today’s configuration: Leica M Monochrom with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95

Somethings just don’t phase me anymore after living in a big city for so many years…

Shibuya

Even after all these years I am still amazed at the scale of Shibuya Crossing…

The Ants of Tokyo…

After exploring Shibuya for a while we headed over to Gompachi in Nishi Asabu. I love this place. The style and decoration inspired the location for the big sword fight scene at the end of Kill Bill 1. If you haven’t seen it; #1 shame on you, #2 go watch it, #3 if you can’t wait just the sword fight scene between ‘The Bride’, GoGo and the Crazy 88s is on YouTube.
