Midtown or Giant Gravestone?

I am probably not the first one to think this, but doesn't Tokyo Midtown look a lot like the gravestones in nearby Aoyama Bochi?

Thinking back to a cooler summer

As I previously posted the family spent a few days in San Francisco cooling off after spending a hot but dry week in Las Vegas visiting my Dad, brother and sister. On the Fourth of July, we spend the evening on the roof of my college buddy's house enjoying the night lights and hoping to catch some fireworks. The fireworks were a bust due to the low hanging clouds and turned into colored fog as my friends described them, but the view of the night lights was amazing. One of the great views from the roof was of the Coit Tower.

More Soap Bubbles in Yoyogi-Koen

In early May near Golden Week, the family spent an afternoon at Yoyogi Park and enjoyed playing with soap bubbles. The soap bubbles and equipment to create them were generously provided by the Yoyogi Shabondama (or see the original web site at  代々木公園@シャボン玉ブログ).
