Mix day with Akihabara and Ginza

Was a good day with a delicious Japanese lunch and my girlfriend and I have this tradition that always when we go to Akihabara we go to M.O.S burger to eat as well, no idea when that started tho heh.

This is what I had for lunch it is called kakuniteishoku, have to say that it was delicious

After that we head off to Akihabara and I got some good shots there ! it’s very interesting now that the Autumn leafs are great in Tokyo but it is already winter here technically.
Of course always have to take photos of the AKB48 cafe and Gundam cafe

I don’t know if many of you know but next week Monday we are going to see my girlfriends family in north Japan at Aomori. At this moment Aomori is full of snow and freaking cold, ok ok  I’m Finnish and Finland is a cold place too but what I have heard from my Finnish friend is that Aomori is VERY cold! Bit worried but I am sure I manage ! need to get some Japanese shirts that are Heat tech !

But I promise I will get some great photos there !

Shōwa Kinen Kōen 昭和記念公園 Part 2

Decided to make this in two parts so it would not be too long !

Here I’ll show you some more photos from that breathtaking park!

I so love how Japanese take their dogs out in these things ! the dog looks happy still tho 😀

Shōwa Kinen Park, 昭和記念公園

These dogs reminded me about a dog my family used to have a long time ago!

Look at this cute little dog saying hello to that little girl ! just the cutest thing you ever seen !

This photo is again one of the “best photos I have taken in Japan”

Don’t you just hate when people are behind your back watching what you are drawing!

Taking photos of these guys were kinda easy, took my time changing my lens and everything and still they haven’t moved than 1cm

I hope I can go to this park again next week to take a better version of this photo ! this is nice too but I want it more sharp.
Shōwa Kinen Park, 昭和記念公園

These looked delicious but I doubt I could eat them !

This Autumn color makes me feel warm inside and I feel like I can scratch “See the Beautiful Autumn colors of Japan” off my bucket list.

I HIGHLY recommend to visit that park any time of the year, but right now it is very beautiful !

It only took me 12 hours to upload these photos !I truly hope you all like them. The internet I am using here at Chiba is not the best but it get’s the job done!

If you are now in Tokyo or arriving here in two weeks, you should go to this park right away! You can see what Japanese Autumn colors are all about if you visit there !

This place is a little far but that does not matter when we are talking about everything this park has to offer. Now you are saying yourself “what is so great about this park compared to Ueno or Shinjuku parks” well,,, EVERYTHING ! as you will see from my photos this park has the most beautiful Japanese garden you’ll ever seen in Tokyo area and also it is HUGE so much to see and do!

Park entrance: 400Yen
Access : Easiest way to this park I noticed was the JR Chuo Line from Nakano. Stop at Tachikawa station (the park is right next to the station 7mins walk)

Many famous photos were taken in this park as well that you can see in tourist magazines and books.

Here are some photos I took at the park! check for the rest at my flickr !

Aren’t those red leafs just to die for !! So beautiful !!! That is what Autumn in Japan is all about!
Shōwa Kinen Park, 昭和記念公園

Took a small break time after walking too long 😀 ! Those apples from Aomori are so delicious ! (portable wifi NTT Docomo, iphone4 ,ipad2)

There was also some very pretty Bonsai plants as well ! you can find them inside the Japanese garden !

Koi コイ You can find this fish in pretty much all the famous parks of Tokyo and maybe in all of Japan (not sure about that Japan part) Very interesting fish but they seem to be very hungry always.

While everyone were taking photos of the beautiful leafs I decided to take some more interesting photos of people who were taking photos of the autumn leafs. What do you think ? did I get good ones?

I came to the park a bit early as you can see.
Shōwa Kinen Park, 昭和記念公園

All of us were waiting outside the gate! about 13 photographers.

Soon as the gates open we all ran quickly to the first great photo spot !
