👘👨😍In the streets of Ikebukuro, a stylish man wearing a perfect yukata (summer kimono)✨with an interesting musubi (the obi/decorative belt's knot). There are many different ways to tie an obi depending for example on the type of kimono you wear and event you attend (casual or formal) or how old you are. Most of these knots have lovely names🌺🐦 like "Morning glory", "Butterfly", "Rose" or "Puffed sparrow"😄😊 For now, my favourite knot is "Kai-no-kuchi musubi" ("Clam's mouth knot"🐚) but needless to say I still need help from Japanese friends to do it perfectly😄😅😊 #japaneseelegance #cooltokyo #tokyostyle #sundayclothes #tokyotraditional #tokyopeople #tokyocolours #manyukata #japaneseobi #obimusubi #streetsnap #snapshot #Toshimaku #Ikebukuro #ilovetokyo #東京スタイル #東京カラーズ #晴れ着姿 #晴れ着 #結び #浴衣 #男子浴衣 #ストリートスナップ #豊島区 #池袋 #東京好き

😍😋Early Saturday evening shopping rush at the supermarket is not exactly the most exciting activity 😅😓😰 but in Japan it's often quite fun😃🙌 For example, the candies, snacks and crackers section immediately makes you fall back into childhood👶💫😁😊 #Pokemonsweets #Pokemonsnacks #Doraemonstuff #Doraemonsnacks #onlyinjapan #cooljapan #cooltokyo #tokyocolours #tokyokawaii #kawaiitokyo #Pokemon #Pikachu #Doraemon #animestyle #mangastyle #Toshimaku #Kanamecho #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京可愛い #可愛い東京 #ドラえもん #ドラえもんグッズ #ポケモン #ピカチュウ #ピカチュウグッズ #東京好き #豊島区 #要町

🌃✨On a nice summer evening in a very old Buddhist temple🎑 Around mid-August throughout Japan most of them light candles and paper lanterns for "O bon", the annual religious event commemorating ancestors. These illuminations are supposed to guide their spirits as, at that time of the year, they are believed to return to this world in order to visit their relatives😌🙏😊 #cooltokyo #tokyotemples #japaneseobon #japaneseobonfestival #tokyoreligion #tokyotraditional #tokyolights #tokyocolours #tokyonights #anightintokyo #ilovetokyo #Nyoraiji #Nishioi #Shinagawaku #東京寺 #お寺 #お寺巡り #お寺好き #養玉院如来寺 #西大井 #品川区 #東京ライト #東京深夜 #ライトアップ #お盆 #お盆ですね #東京カラーズ #東京好き

☀✨🎶The loveliest melody of summer days in Japan (together with cidadas song, of course). The refreshing sound of colourful "furin" (glass wind chimes)😍If you hang these traditional wind bells near the house entrance or on a balcony, they are supposed to expel lurking evil spirits👹🙏😊😌 #tokyotraditional #cooltokyo #tokyosunshine #tokyocolours #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #japanesewindchimes #glasswindbell #furin #ginza #chuoku #ilovetokyo #東京サンシャイン #東京カラーズ #東京サマー #東京夏 #風鈴 #風鈴の音 #風鈴の音色 #銀座 #中央区 #東京好き

👶💫💪💥Tokyo kid posing for a photo😁at the entrance of Ikebukuro′s "Ultraman 2018 Festival". The event is busy all day long as this science fiction television series created in the 60s is still hugely popular in Japan. Every week, old episodes are aired on a TV channel here🙌😃 #tokyokids #ultraman #ultramanfan #ultraman2018 #cooltokyo #cooljapan #japanesecinema #mangastyle #tokyocolours #ikebukurosunshinecity #ikebukuro #toshimaku #ilovetokyo #東京キッズ #ウルトラマン #ウルトラマン大好き #日本映画 #日本映画好き #邦画 #邦画好き #映画好き #池袋 #豊島区 #池袋サンシャインシティ #東京カラーズ #東京好き

🎆👻👺Summer decorations in Asagaya's "Pearl Center" shopping arcade✨Since the mid-50s, this is the liveliest place in Tokyo in early August because at this time of the year, it displays giant and colourful papier-mâché figures👽👹👺 hanging from its nice glass roof. Right now, this place is probably the best in town for shopping...😊😌 #tokyosummer #tokyocolours #tokyofestival #tokyomatsuri #asagayapearlcenter #asagaya #asagayatanabatamatsuri #japanesedolls #kokeshi #suginamiku #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京サマー #東京夏 #阿佐ヶ谷 #阿佐ヶ谷七夕祭り #杉並区 #小芥子 #東京祭り #祭りマジック #祭り #東京好き

After last weekend's typhoon🌀☔, the sun is back in the streets of Tokyo🙌 and with it the heat and humidity🔥💦For sure it's only the beginning: August will be torrid in the city😅☀⚡💥 #tokyostreets #pedestriancrossing #tokyopedestriancrossing #ginza #ginzacrossing #tokyuplazaginza #chuoku #tokyocolours #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #ilovetokyo #東京ストリート #銀座 #東急プラザ銀座屋上 #中央区 #東京カラーズ 東京サマー #東京夏 #東京暑い #東京あつい #東京好き

Probably few outdoor activities feasible in Tokyo this weekend as a typhoon is approaching the city ☔🌀(very usual at this time of the year😌). A good opportunity to go to the movies and enjoy the live-adaptation of Tite Kubo's megahit manga "Bleach" (120 million paperback volumes sold!)🔥⚡An orange-haired teenage boy who confronts supernatural forces: it will be both refreshing❄🍦and relaxing💥👶💪😃 #cooltokyo #cooljapan #japanesecinema #japanesemovieposter #mangastyle #bleachmanga #bleachliveaction2018 #bleachfan #bleachichigo #tokyoads #tokyoadvert #tokyometro #tokyosubway #Hibiyaline #tokyocolours #日本映画 #日本映画好き #邦画 #邦画好き #映画好き #映画ポスター #bleach実写化 #黒崎一護 #東京メトロ #日比谷#東京カラーズ #東京の壁

👧🌀💡❄Little Tokyo girl fulfilling her mission with seriousness and rigour😃 With her tiny portable (and illuminated!✨😍😂) fan, refreshing Daddy who feels very hot and sweats like crazy🔥💦 But despite her kind dedication, it's probably "Mission: Impossible" even for Tom Cruise himself. Around 40 degrees☀⚡ in town yesterday (and “Real feel” over 45 due to high humidity💧)😅 #tokyokids #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #tokyokawaii #kawaiitokyo #tokyocolours #portablefan #tokyopeople #tokyostyle #snapshot #streetsnap #kanamecho #toshimaku #ilovetokyo #東京サマー #東京夏 #東京暑い #東京あつい #東京可愛い #可愛い東京 #東京キッズ #東京カラーズ 東京スタイル #ポータブルファン #ストリートスナップ #要町 #豊島区 #東京好き

🌿✨🌸🐝Trying to find the perfect place in town to beat the heat but even in the shade of parks and gardens it's incredibly hot and humid🔥💦, a kind of steam sauna atmosphere…😁😅 This week, temperatures surged above 37 degrees in Tokyo and hit a high of 39.7 in some inland areas of Japan💥☀ #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #tokyocolours #tokyoparks #tokyopark #greentokyo #Hinokichopark #Akasaka #Minatoku #Tokyomidtown #ilovetokyo #東京サマー #東京夏 #東京暑い #東京あつい #東京カラーズ #東京自然 #東京公園 #東京公園巡り #港区立檜町公園 #赤坂 #港区 #東京ミッドタウン #東京好き

🎶☀💥🏮It's summer hence everybody begins to dance in Tokyo💃😁😃 Like here in Ikebukuro West Gate Park. Despite the sweltering heat🔥😅, hundreds of people gathered this afternoon to enjoy the yearly "New Bon odori dance" event – always a very pleasant moment😄🎶👘👺🎉🍧😊 #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #tokyosmiles #tokyopeople #tokyocolours #tokyotraditional #bonodori #newbonodori #ikebukuro #toshimaku #ikebukurowestgatepark #ilovetokyo #ニュー盆踊り #盆踊り #東京カラーズ #池袋西口公園 #東京笑顔 #東京好き #東京サマー #東京夏 #池袋 #豊島区

💧✨😌A very refreshing... sound. In the garden of a Buddhist temple, water gently trickling 🎶 from a large metal basin. Precious little music when the city is beginning to melt down as usually after rainy season. Around 35 degrees (real feel 40, according to my smartphone😅) in Tokyo today…😲☀⚡ #tokyotemples #tokyocolours #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #Gokokuji #Toshimaku #ilovetokyo #東京サマー #東京夏 #東京暑い #東京あつい #東京カラーズ #護国寺 #お寺 #東京寺 #お寺好き #お寺巡り #豊島区 #東京好

Splendid weather in Tokyo these days. How dreadful😣😲😨the contrast with the record rainfall that hit western Japan last weekend, which killed 150 people at least (scores are still missing) in floods and landslides😫😭 May they rest in peace😢🙏 #sadjapan #tokyosummer #japanesesummer #tokyobluesky #tokyosunshine #tokyocolours #tokyoarchitecture #whiteandblue #blueandwhite #chuoohashibridge #chuoku #東京青空 #東京サンシャイン #東京カラーズ #東京サマー #東京夏 #東京建築 #東京カラーズ #白と青 #白と青の世界 #中央大橋 #中央区

🌼😍✨Early summer flowers in Tokyo😊😌 They are in great shape, having been so watered during rainy season☔😏But it’s better to enjoy them rapidly as many will be damaged by the typhoon season...😢 (rough weather these days in the city🌀⚡😨😅) #tokyoflowers #tokyocolours #tokyosummer #cooltokyo #japanflowers #japanesesummer #tokyokawaii #kawaiitokyo #instaflower #instaflowers #blueflowers #hydrangea #agapanthus #Mejiro #Toshimaku #ilovetokyo #東京サマー #東京夏 #東京可愛い #東京カラーズ #東京花 #紫陽花 #アガパンサス #青い花 #青い花が好き #目白 #豊島区 #東京好き
