✨🍵❄One of the joys of winter in Tokyo: when you begin to feel cold on the streets😪😅, to buy a hot green tea at a nicely decorated vending machine, manga/anime style😍💥💫✴ (some of them also have Darjeeling tea🙌👍😋😃) #cooltokyo #onlyinjapan #vendingmachine #tokyovendingmachines #tokyowinter #mangastyle #animestyle #tokyocolours #ikebukuro #ilovetokyo #自動販売機 #自動販売機大好き #自動販売機シリーズ #冬 #冬の楽しみ #冬が好き #東京好き #東京最高 #池袋

✨🌅🏮Winter at dusk, when the outdoor temperature suddenly plummets😲❄😪: the pleasure to come upon old paper lanterns hanging in front of Buddhist temples (as here in Zoshigaya), with their colours so vivid they instantly warm you up☀🔥😊 #tokyocolours #tokyonights #anightintokyo #tokyolights #ilovetokyo #paperlanterns #cooltokyo #tokyoreligion #tokyotraditional #tokyotemples #toshimaku #zoshigaya #tokyowinter #東京寺 #冬 #冬の楽しみ #冬が好き #雑司が谷 #豊島区 #東京深夜 #東京カラーズ #東京好き #ペーパーランタン

⛅✨☀🌇Some huge, spectacular pristine white clouds to punctuate the landscape of the infinitely blue sky and once again this morning a splendid weather all over the city - like here in dear Ikebukuro. The week starts well. Winter in Tokyo is definitely an enjoyable season🍵♨☀🌆✨😃 #tokyocolours #tokyobluesky #tokyosunshine #tokyoconcretejungle #tokyowinter #blue #tokyoclouds #clouds #whiteandblue #blueandwhite #whitecloud #whiteandbluesky #toshima #toshimaku #ikebukuro #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京青空 #東京サンシャイン #冬 #冬の楽しみ #冬が好き #青い #ブルー #池袋 #豊島区 #雲 #空模様 #白と青 #白と青の世界

☀Incredibly bright weather and gorgeous blue sky once again in Tokyo this afternoon✨🙌😃 The 2020 Olympics and Paralympics Games 🏃🏊🎾are only two years away. But will the city be ready in time😓? According to a recent opinion poll, 62 percent of the respondents are concerned because they believe the preparations for this event are not proceeding smoothly. Probably many of them are also upset by the huge cost (though it has been reduced a bit) of hosting these Games: 1.35 trillion yen ($11.9 billion)😲💴 #tokyobluesky #tokyoarchitecture #tokyosunshine #tokyotowers #tokyoskyscrapers #tokyoconcretejungle #tokyocolours #tokyowinter #blue #tokyoolympics #tokyoolympics2020 #toramonhills #minatoku #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京青空 #東京建築 #東京サンシャイン #冬 #冬の楽しみ #冬が好き #青い #ブルー #東京オリンピック #東京オリンピック2020 #東京オリンピックに向けて #虎ノ門ヒルズ #港区 #東京好き

Back in Tokyo, at last! 🙌🎉 Just a few cute little winter flowers spotted in a hurry in a Buddhist temple in order to wish you - better late than never...😅 - an absolutely fabulous year! As Bjork sang so many years ago, be "violently happy" in 2018!🔥✴💥✨💫😃 Thank you for visiting or following "Tokyo Tempo" during 2017. Let's go together for some more smartphone photos that will try to capture the atmosphere of this definitely so fascinating Asian city✨💓🏮🍸🌉👺🐱🍻☀😊😍 #tokyocolours #tokyotemples #minatoku #japanflowers #instaflower #instaflowers #tokyoflowers #yellow #winterflower #winterflowers #ilovetokyo #tokyowinter #HappyNewYear #東京カラーズ #東京寺 #港区 #東京花 #黄色 #東京好き #冬 #冬の楽しみ #冬が好き

👉"YOU!" This finger pointed at me😨😅by a man seen in the crowd during the Yosakoi matsuri/festival parade 🎆🎈👺🍢🏮in October, around Ikebukuro station. Two months later, he could tell me: "You'd better come back to Tokyo quickly and keep up the good posts on this Instagram account!" And I would say: “OK, but, sorry sir, once a year, I must leave Tokyo 🌇🌉✨🏮🗻😢and go back to Europe in order to celebrate Christmas and New Year's Eve parties with my family and friends..."🎆🍴🍸😋😊 Therefore, "Tokyo Tempo" will take a break for a few days. But, normally, it should resume in early January. Meanwhile, please take care wherever you are, and have fun! 🎉🍻💃🍹🍗🍰🔥💥✨😉😊 #retouraubled #yosakoi #yosakoidance #tokyofestival #tokyotraditional #japaneseelegance #tokyocolours #tokyomatsuri #tokyopeople #tokyocolours #toshimaku #ikebukuro #ilovetokyo #帰国 #東京祭り #東京カラーズ #よさこい #よさこい祭り #よさこいまつり #よさこいが好き #祭りマジック #祭り #東京カラーズ #東京好き #東京最高 #豊島区 #池袋

🚲🌙🏮Very trendy this winter in Tokyo including in my dear Kanamechō "village", though it is definitely not "Hipster City"😏😉 (by the way, that's one of the reasons why I like living there😊). Bikes with huge, thoroughly oversized tires😲 Absolutely useless given the perfect quality of asphalt in this city (something of a change compared to Paris...😣😏). But, who knows, very convenient to show off a bit✨💫😚💪😁😂😏😊 #cooltokyo #cooljapan #tokyobikes #tokyonicebikes #tokyolights #paperlanterns #tokyocolours #tokyonights #anightintokyo #kanamecho #tokyovillage #toshimaku #ilovetokyo #東京自転車 #東京カラーズ #東京ライト #東京深夜 #ペーパーランタン #豊島区 #要町 #東京好き

😍✨Tokyo, so huge that there are always exciting things to discover💥💯💫and unknown areas of the city to explore😍🔦😲😃 Tokyo in December with its infinite blue sky☀🙌, which makes wandering in this fascinating urban jungle even more enjoyable🌸🌆🌱🏮🍶🐱🎆📷🎈🎉😍😆😊 #tokyocolours #tokyobigcity #tokyolandscape #tokyoarchitecture #tokyotowers #tokyoskyscrapers #tokyosunshine #tokyobluesky #tokyobladerunner #tokyoconcretejungle #concretejungle #shinjuku #shinjukuku #cocoontower #cocoontowertokyo #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京建築 #東京青空 #東京サンシャイン #新宿 #東京コンクリートジャングル #コンクリートジャングル #コクーンタワー #東京好き #東京最高

✨👶👸Two pretty faces you regularly see in huge advertisements all over the city🏢🏫🗼, like here for example in Ikebukuro station🚇, as they seem very popular in Japan🎆 💫: Gran and Lyria, the leading characters of "Granblue Fantasy". This role-playing video game developed for Android, iOS and web browsers has been downloaded more than 10 million times since its release, in 2014😲😃 #cooltokyo #cooljapan #granbluefantasy #tokyoads #tokyoadvert #mangastyle #animestyle #videogame #roleplayingvideogame #japanesevideogames #japanesevideogame #ikebukuro #ikebukurostation #tokyopeople #tokyocolours #ilovetokyo #グランブルーファンタジー #ルリア #ビデオゲーム #東京好き #東京カラーズ #池袋 #池袋駅

🍃🎨😍☀December colours in Tokyo. The vermilion of "torii", as the "sacred gates" of Shinto shrines are called. The yellow of ginkgobiloba dead leaves: the most lovely and delicate "carpet" ever made. And a fleeting golden ray of sunshine🙌👏🎉😃😊, so precious in an unusually cloudy morning⛅😵🍃 #tokyoshrines #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #tokyocolours #tokyosunshine #ginkgobiloba #ginkgobilobatree #tokyoreligion #tokyotraditional #toshimaku #zoshigaya #ilovetokyo #東京神社 #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #東京カラーズ #東京サンシャイン #紅葉 #イチョウの葉 #鬼子母神堂 #雑司が谷 #豊島区 #東京好き #東京最高

A moment ago in Shinjuku, a tender look at this little tree trying to draw attention to its pretty foliage✨🍃 though it seems so frail compared to the huge and quite glitzy surrounding towers🏢🏫😓 Puny but brave little tree💪👏😊, which manages to survive in such a concrete jungle despite all the air and noise pollution, a very busy car trafic and the awful urban pressure of this district, one of the most densely populated in the world💥😅 #shinjuku #tokyostreets #tokyoarchitecture #autumnintokyo #tokyoautumn #tokyocolours #tokyotowers #tokyoskyscrapers #streetphotography #streetsnap #tokyopeople #ilovetokyo #新宿 #東京ストリート #東京カラーズ #東京建築 #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #ストリートフォトグラフィー #ストリートスナップ #東京好き

✨🎆🍃The autumn foliage season will not necessarily last a long time in Tokyo. Strong gusty winds and heavy snowfalls like in Western Japan could wipe out all this wonder within just a few days🌀😢 Therefore, you see a lot of people in the parks and gardens of the city presently (as here, in Toyama Park), making the most of these magical moments 😍📷🎨✨😊 #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #greentokyo #tokyocolours #momiji #red #toyamapark #ilovetokyo #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #東京自然 #東京カラーズ #もみじ #紅葉 #赤い #戸山公園 #東京好き #東京最高

In Shinjuku as elsewhere in Tokyo presently, illuminations celebrate the year-end holiday season🎉🎄🎅👼🌠🍸But these decorations are not really necessary in this district. Indeed, thanks to its famous glittering and colourful neon signs🎆💥✨, the magic of Christmas is every day all year long there: as soon as night falls on the city🌅🌃💫🌇💡😍😊 #tokyolights #tokyocolours #tokyonights #anightintokyo #tokyoneon #tokyoneonsigns #shinjuku #tokyostreets #streetphotography #streetsnap #tokyopeople #cooltokyo #ilovetokyo #東京ライト #東京ストリート #東京カラーズ #東京深夜 #東京好き #東京最高 #東京ネオン #ネオンサイン #ネオンサインは夜のおはよう #ストリートフォトグラフィー #ストリートスナップ #新宿

In my dearest "Tokyo village"🌸🍻🏮🐱 of Kanamechō Takamatsu, one of the most important yearly event of Japanese community life🎆🎉💥: "mochitsuki"! That is to say the hugely popular making of sticky rice cakes and sweets (I particularly like "mochi" rice sweets with sesame seeds😋😋). The steamed glutinous rice is mashed and pounded with wooden mallets in a traditional mortar. This requires steady rhythm (two people are involved at the same time: one pounding the "mochi" and the other turning and wetting it) as well as physical strength💪💪: these mallets are heavy (but there are smaller and lighter ones for kids👶😁😂😏). As it was the first time I did that, I'm not sure I perfectly pounded the so venerable "mochi"😅😅 But I was infinitely honoured (and quite moved, I must confess💓) to be invited by my dear neighbours/friends to join them for this so old popular tradition🙌🙇😊 #tokyovillage #onlyinjapan #tokyokids #tokyotraditional #mochitsuki #mochi #mochitsuki2017 #kanamecho #toshimaku #ilovetokyo #東京キッズ #もちつき #幼稚園行事 #餅つき #餅つき大会 #餅つき体験 #餅つき会 #要町 #豊島区 #東京好き #東京最高

☀✨🍃Thanks to the splendid weather and the extraordinary colours of both the sky and the trees, the infinite grace of traditional Japanese architecture is even more striking than usual in Tokyo Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines presently😍✨ How beautiful it is to enjoy that!😍😊 #tokyosunshine #tokyobluesky #autumnintokyo #tokyoautumn #tokyocolours #ginkgobiloba #ginkgobilobatree #tokyotemples #tokyoreligion #tokyotraditional #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京青空 #東京サンシャイン #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #イチョウの葉 #東京寺 #紅葉 #東京神社 #東京最高 #東京好き

☀This morning, quite early, in Marunouchi district: incredibly bright weather and infinitely blue sky😍✨😍💥😊 September and October are often painfully rainy and cloudy months in this city because of the typhoon🌀and "akisame" (autumn rains☔) seasons😣😓 But most of the time, November and December are wonderfully sunny (sometimes mild, too: almost 20 degrees in Tokyo the other day!☀🎆🎉🙌🎽👒🏄😆😁) #tokyosunshine #tokyobluesky #tokyoarchitecture #tokyotowers #tokyoskyscrapers #tokyoconcretejungle #autumnintokyo #tokyoautumn #tokyocolours #marunouchi #ilovetokyo #東京カラーズ #東京青空 #東京建築 #東京サンシャイン #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #丸の内 #東京好き
