Golden Hour at La Forêt

The famous La Forêt department store anchors one corner of the intersection of Meiji Dori and Omotesando in Harajuku. This department store is located at the center of Tokyo's cutting edge of fashion district. I was lucky enough to pass by and capture its marque and favorable light on a late afternoon in January.

Yoyogi Koen Onion Family

One the way to the Okinawa Matsuri 2017 in Yoyogi Park, I spotted these unusual purple flowers and stopped to take a photo. Believe it or not, these flowers are in the onion family! Not sure if I got the exact type, but based on a quick google search they look like Allium 'Globus'.

Daikanyama Street Art

Saturday morning on a random mostly-residential street under Kyu-Yamate Dori (旧山手通り), I ran past this street art. It really caught my attention and I had to go back and get a better photo. Not sure who the artist was. Probably should have looked a little closer for a signature.
