Happy New Year (あけおめ)

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy year of the monkey (2016). Here are a few pictures I snapped while walking around Tokyo.



The koi from Asakusa’s traditional Japanese restaurant. I first met these guys (girls?) nearly ten years ago when they were little babies. Look how much they have grown!

The National Diet Building (with unrelated school field trip photo in the foreground). I spent some days researching at the National Diet Library and snapped this picture of Japan’s legislature.

Picture of the Christmas Market at Hibiya Park. This wooden tower was imported from Germany specifically for the event.
