Mt. Fuji

The scene looks rather bleak, but Mt. Fuji looks good whenever you have the rare chance to see it.

The making of a modern Ukiyo-e (浮世絵)

Creating a new ukiyo-e on a storefront in Nihonbashi (Tokyo, Japan)

On an unseasonably cold evening in late November, we came upon this man painting (I think) an original ukiyo-e in the Nihonbashi part of Tokyo. If you want to see the finished result you’ll need to roam the streets of Nihonbashi after (or before) business hours as this can only be seen when the shop is closed.

The location is approximately here.

Shinjuku (and Mt. Fuji)

Tokyo, Japan

I have shown this scene (the Mt. Fuji piece anyway) zoomed in a couple times before. Today’s pic is a much more general overview of the bulk of Shinjuku Ku with the main Shinjuku skyscraper buildings in the distant center, a bit of Nakano Ku in the distance to the right and a bit of Shibuya Ku in the distance to the left.
