After the Ghibli Museum we stopped at a random Tokyo intersection to grab lunch. Here are a few shots; a mix of handheld HDR and others via my Canon 5D Mark III.
A busy Tokyo street.
What is a pepper lunch? Have I mentioned how I find it odd that even in the outlying areas of Tokyo there is so much random English?
For example, English advertising signs. I am not quite sure that this sign would go over well in Canada or the US? Made me smile.
We decided on “Japanese BBQ” which they call Yakiniku. The front of the restaurant was a huge open kitchen with open BBQ grills.
It was very smoky. A combination of people smoking and the BBQ fumes. On a Saturday afternoon, people enjoying a beer and some BBQ.
I didn’t get a shot of what we ate, it disappeared too fast.
Definitely a “true” Japanese exploration for the family.
One last shot from the street; we came across another Japan first for us – a bicycle parking lot. There must have been 500+ bikes.
Here is where you pay.
A good wander.
