When staying in Tokyo we like to be in the Shibuya neighbourhood, easy to walk to most places, lots of great restaurants and parks. Aoyama is a neighbourhood close to Shibuya and the architecture there always blows my mind. The Japanese architecture is insanely great at the best of times, but this neighbourhood has the sense they are each trying to out-chic each other.

I was shooting a little project for Omega and greatly enjoyed stalking around the little side streets, marvelling at not only the sakura blossoms (Or what was left of them) but also the contrast of green foliage and grey cement. You had houses built around trees; houses absolutely covered in trees, almost abandoned and overgrown looking but people do actually live there!

So above I’ve shared some of my findings whilst walking around Tokyo. I can’t wait to be back there in October where I’ll do some more stalking for you guys.

  3. What a pretty story, I love the mix of all those natural elements (such an amazing edit of blossoms!) against the man made textures… Beautiful as always!
