🎶✨Young and talented shamisen (Japanese three-string guitar) players on the verge of performing during a traditional culture festival🎈🎆in Kagurazaka, last weekend. Every year on the stone-paved back alleys of this district🍃🐱, you can enjoy traditional storytelling shows, biwa (Japanese lute) concerts, folk melodies, percussions and many other street live performances. There are even “shamisen rock bands”!😲😁😆👏👏😊 #tokyotraditional #tokyocolours #tokyostyle #tokyosmiles #tokyopeople #shamisen #shamisenplayer #japaneseelegance #kagurazaka #kagurazakatokyo #kagurazakastreet #tokyostreets #cooljapan #ilovetokyo #東京ストリート #東京スタイル #東京カラーズ #神楽坂 #神楽坂下 #神楽坂ライフ #三味線 #三味線ライブ #東京笑顔 #東京好き

Salaryman leaving Atago Jinja shrine 😍✨after a prayer during his lunch break. This shrine is located in the center of Minato Ward business district. Scores of salarymen climb its very steep stairway every day because worshipping here allegedly brings good fortune to your career🙏¥😁😊 #onlyinjapan #tokyopeople #tokyocolours #tokyoshrines #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #tokyoreligion #tokyotraditional #minatoku #atagojinja #ilovetokyo #tokyosalaryman #japanesesalaryman #サラリーマンライフ #東京神社 #東京カラーズ #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #愛宕神社 #愛宕神社参拝 #東京好き #港区

✨🎨In Tokyo, amateur painters and drawers are preparing their materials in order to be up and running quickly for the autumn foliage season🍃😍As soon as it starts, scores of them will flock parks, gardens and precinct of shrines or temples (like here in Zoshigaya's Kishimojindō) and, for hours, patiently try to put down on paper the ephemeral splendour of these so precious moments✨😊 #cooltokyo #tokyoautumn #tokyotemples #tokyocolours #zoshigaya #kishimojindo #toshima #momiji #kishimojintemple #ilovetokyo #紅葉 #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #鬼子母神堂 #雑司が谷 #東京寺 #東京カラーズ #東京好き #豊島区 #もみじ

🍃Throughout the city like here in Otomeyama Park (Shinjuku Ward), trees gradually take on nice colours. And this is just the beginning. In ten days or so in Tokyo, the big show will begin. As every year, the famous Japanese "momiji" (or kōyō) autumn foliage season✨😍😲😃 will offer absolutely stunning vistas of red, yellow, orange or purple leaves. And, once again, it will be unforgettable🎆💥❇ Can't wait for it😊 #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #greentokyo #tokyocolours #shinjukuku #shimoochiai #otomeyamapark #ilovetokyo #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #東京自然 #東京好き #東京カラーズ #乙女山公園 #おとめ山公園 #新宿区 #新宿区下落合 #下落合 #下落合公園

☀🌼🌿🐞Very pleasant morning walk (blue sky, spring-like temperatures, nice setting) in Asukayama Park with a dear friend from Paris currently in Tokyo. For sure, to get there, we took the delightfully obsolete Toden Arakawa streetcar line🚉, recently renamed…🌸"Tokyo Sakura tram"😊 (But no passenger was as prettily dressed as this beautiful young girl😍😏😉) #tokyovintage #cooltokyo #tokyoretro #todenarakawaline #ilovetokyo #tokyotram #tokyotramway #tokyosakuratram #asukayamapark #mangastyle #animestyle #tokyocolours #tokyoads #tokyoadvert #都電あらかわ線 #都電荒川線 #東京レトロ #東京好き #東京最高 #飛鳥山公園 #東京カラーズ #東京さくらトラム #東京さくらトラムっていうらしい

😍In Shibuya suddenly, at the corner of a street, a red-crowned crane 😲 painted on the wall of a car park✨😃 Next to another symbol of Japan famous natural beauties: cherry blossoms🌸 In Tokyo, you can definitely find a lot of things on the walls, and often quite pretty things. You just have to wander the city eyes wide open😍, to make sure you don't miss them😊 #japanesecrane #redcrownedcrane #tanchozuru #tokyograffiti #japangraffiti #tokyowalls #tokyostreetart #streetartjapan #streetarttokyo #tokyocolours #ilovetokyo #Shibuya #丹頂鶴 #タンチョウヅル #ストリートアート東京 #ストリートアート日本 #東京ストリートアート #東京カラーズ #グラフィティ #東京好き #渋谷 #東京の壁

☀✨Sunshine, blue sky and more than twenty degrees this afternoon in Tokyo🙌🙌!! (But last year it was even better: we enjoyed an unforgettable "27-27": 27 degrees on October 27😲😅😁). Perfect weather to wander in Shinjuku and contemplate its beautiful skyscrapers like Kenzo Tange's gorgeous Cocoon Tower💥✨😍😊 #tokyoarchitecture #shinjuku #cocoontower #cocoontowertokyo #tokyocolours #ilovetokyo #tokyobluesky #blue #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #新宿 #西新宿 #コクーンタワー #東京青空 #東京建築 #東京カラーズ #東京好き #東京最 #青い #ブルー #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配

The week starts pretty well in Tokyo🙌😊As here above a small church in Mejiro, heavy clouds gradually go away, good old sun shines again and temperatures rise: 21 degrees expected today!👏👏😆☀ Typhoon “Lan” left the city. At last you can wander the streets without being soaked to the skin and shaken as if you were in a washing machine🌀🌊, like yesterday😲😅 #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #tokyocolours #ilovetokyo #mejiro #toshimaku #tokyosunshine #tokyobluesky #tokyoclouds #clouds #church #chapel #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #東京カラーズ #東京好き #目白 #豊島区 #東京青空 #東京サンシャイン #雲 #空模様

🌸Enjoying these cute little autumn flowers in the back alleys of Shinjuku Golden Gai district before they disappear. Because, for sure, the heavy rainfall and strong winds of approaching Category 1 typhoon "Lan" (the 21st typhoon of the season🌊) will blow them away🌀🍃 That said, these slight urban inconveniences will be nothing at all compared to the damage that destructive landslides and floods will probably cause to so many rural areas in Japan😨😣😓 #tokyoflowers #tokyocolours #goldengai #shinjuku #ilovetokyo #japanflowers #instaflower #instaflowers #tokyoautumn #autumnintokyo #tokyostreets #kawaiitokyo #東京秋 #東京の秋 #秋の気配 #東京可愛 #東京ストリート #東京花 #東京カラーズ #ゴールデン街 #新宿 #東京好き

✨🗻😍In Tokyo, even metal shutters can be quite pretty😊Like here in Asakusa, this rather ordinary "Dormy Inn" hotel that stands out by its colourful painting of a landscape during the Edo period😍👏👏 #tokyocolours #asakusa #onlyinjapan #tokyostreets #tokyotraditional #ilovetokyo #cooljapan #tokyowalls #tokyostreetart #streetartjapan #streetarttokyo #東京ストリート #ストリートアート東京 #ストリートアート日本 #東京ストリートアート #東京の壁 #東京カラーズ #浅草 #東京好き

🎆🏮🌙🎉Party time once again in Tokyo!😁😅 This time in Zoshigaya, a very nice area adjacent to Minami Ikebukuro, where there are several beautiful temples and sanctuaries. Like Kishimojindō, which was built in the Edo period✨😍 These days, many local residents gather there for “Oeshiki Festival”. In a very easy-going atmosphere, they enjoy popular dishes like "takoyaki" or "yakitori"😋 Too bad Instagram can′t convey cooking and grilling scent. It would make your mouth water🍡🍢🍘🍶🍳🍻😃 #tokyotemples #tokyocolours #tokyopeople #zoshigaya #ilovetokyo #kishimojindo #toshima #kishimojintemple #cooltokyo #tokyodeliciousfood #oeshiki #oeshikifestival #鬼子母神堂 #雑司が谷 #東京寺 #東京カラーズ #東京好き #東京祭り #祭りマジック #祭り #東京最高 #豊島区 #東京おいしいもの #東京美味しい #おえしき祭
