Spending nights in Tokyo

Here are some shots from Tokyo, Japan. When the sun is gone the city turns into a multi-light city. Buildings, advertising screens, cars and the city itself have bright colours.

Vending machines are everywhere. They’re in subway stations, parking lots, buildings, civic centers, and especially on the streets. There are hundreds of them selling all kind of stuff. Hot or cold drinks, water, coke, tea, beers …

If you are in Tokyo today you could do worse than to visit the Nakamurabashi Awaodori festival in Nerima Ward. The main event is tonight! I visited the warm up yesterday and I have never seen so many kids in Tokyo in my life. The average age of the people visiting must have been eight or nine.

Yesterday there were only a handful of teams taking part in the parade and they were all local Nerima teams. Perhaps the most famous of the Nerima based teams is the Daikonren (だいこん連), after the local vegetable speciality, the daikon, which are said to be especially delicious grown around here.
