Ukiyo's Tokyo/Kanto! 東京!

Hi guys, I finally decided I will upload my thousands of pictures (and counting) I take of Tokyo in here. Basically this thread will probably never end since the amount of pictures I take is always increasing.

With this thread maybe I can show you how average Tokyo is besides just tourist areas (I definitely have pictures from those areas too though) since I live on and off/have family in Tokyo. Also I will post videos from train or bicycle rides or festivals etc so please watch them!

If you have not seen my previous Tokyo pictures thread please check it out: https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1518409

I hope you enjoy

So to start the thread off (even though it messes up the order of time) I'll start it from Narita like most threads on here (in reality here I just returned from a trip to China).


Video from the skyliner



Unfortunately windows movie maker added random black bars and made it smaller

Beautiful. It's so nice to see that traditions are alive and well. I always find it a shame when tradition and culture are denigrated by people and not appreciated. They'll be missed when we no longer have such a connection to our past.

Japan keeps its traditions alive very strongly, in fact it's now more common for young people to be wearing traditional clothes than their parents generation (not as much as grandparents/great grandparents though). Check the videos

So after like 3 months of not posting here's some more although today's probably won't be that interesting.

It was a rainy day...so I decided to go to the Rail Museum in Saitama

So starting off like always from my home we leave. I originally wanted to go to the anime museum near my house in Suginami but it was closed that day.
