Hello Jiyugaoka – Photos of Tokyo


Finally we moved into our new place yesterday.   Lots of unpacking to do but I am excited to start exploring a new part of Tokyo. I found a great place simply called ‘The Bake Shop’ just a few minute walk from our house.   Great coffee, food and atmosphere. I imagine I will be spending a lot of time here.

Today’s Configuration: FujiFilm x100.  Leica M9 with a Summilux 21mm f/1.4 and 21mm viewfinder.

I had The Egg Plate.   Hidden under the cheese is ratatouille.    I was first taken back that they didn’t serve butter with the bread but after eating the bread I realized it is so good that it wasn’t needed.

I swung buy the post office to drop another shipment of Shoot Tokyo T-Shirts in the mail…

After a long day of packing and unpacking I decided to head out with my M9 and 21mm lens for a walk to see what Jiyugaoka has to offer…

Jiyugaoka is full of these little streets.  I imagine it will take me a while to learn all that Jiyugaoka has to offer…
