Everyday Life in Tokyo; Strolling the Streets of the City

Hello again! Well, this one is the second part of our virtual tour of Tokyo, Japan. I have just published the first one and shared ten pictures — those who are interested could see the previous post, the one right before this. So, again, I will not pretend as though I know enough to write about the city. And again, these photos are taken by a dear friend of mine. Since he graciously agreed to share, I will be posting them here for you all, as well.

They are all pictures of Tokyo — unedited, uncut, raw material showing the everyday lives of people, streets, and surely also touristic places. As for me, I really love seeing a foreign city through the eye of a visitor who is also interested in the city itself in its everyday conditions, rather than all made up unrealistic facades that are made popular. Yes, I understand there is a value and truth to that, as well, but it is not the truth — it is not the whole truth.

(And yes, that is a real Sumo Wrestling match! I hear these guys are very respected in Japan. And if I am not wrong, you can be granted citizenship in Japan, as a foreigner, if you decide to become a sumo wrestler. Well, yea, you will have to put on a couple hundred pounds for that.)

Already, let me just shut up and let you guys enjoy the photos. I hope you will like your virtual tour of Tokyo through these photos as much as I did.

(Strolling the streets of Tokyo — Everyday lives of Tokyonian people. Tokyonian? Is that a word? That’s how we should call them? Probably something like that. Anyways… Can’t be Tokyoer, right? Sorry, I digress, back to the pictures and our walk…)

(Whatever this tower is, my friend must have loved the view. He took lots of pictures of this tower. And I am picking that brings the patched, rough streets of Tokyo and the tower together)
