The Moment of Tokyo city
latest updates: Tokyo
“Baby the Stars Shine Bright” is the name of a popular store in Harajuku selling clothes for young Lolitas. We visited Harajuku again for the first time in many years and got a real eye-full of these charmingly dressed kids. Much too crowded a place to draw any one person, so I just did a few details. “Kamazake Girls” is the name of a rentable movie about this subculture.

je suis devenu un adepte des chaussettes pour tabi.
les tabis sont des chaussures avec pouce séparé.
ce sont des chaussures de charpentier, qui leur permettent une plus grande habileté sur les poutres.
il paraîtrait que la jeunesse tokyoïte les porte de plus en plus en discothèque…
bientôt en france?

This was something I came upon in a book in my hotel room in Tokyo a couple years ago. The Life Size Project started on New Years Day 2001 at the Meiji Shrine. People make their first shrine visit of the new year on January 1st, so there are many people around and it is a good time for surveys. They ask people of varying ages how long they would like to live. Some of the answers really surprised me. I chose four women with interesting faces and copied their answers. The number on the left tells how old they currently are and on the right is the age they hope to live to. I used pencil and watercolors.
We stayed here for 4 nights as an experiment. Although the room was terrific, the hotel was much too grand for our tastes and the neighborhood a little too quiet. Lots of interesting architectural styles in this neighborhood though.
