Mar 22 2022 16 CommentsTokyo kimono, decay and corrugated metal Tokyo is a city of contrasts, which this scene amply demonstrates, and yet despite the obvious differences, there also turned out to be some nice visual coincidences to connect them.
Oh there is so much for me to enjoy with this one! 🙂
Thank you. Was definitely nice to turn the corner and see them heading in our direction.
Thank you for sharing this. Their matching kimono are beautiful.
You are very welcome, and yeah, seeing someone in a kimono is always a treat no matter how many times you’ve seen one (or two).

ohhhh…. I wish I were there to take this one! WAIT!! I was! (^ ^)
Haha, we timed that very nicely eh?
Through no fault of their designing
instep along the windings
of these metalled ways.
Very nicely done. Cheers. A lovely accompaniment to the photo.
If your lens had stopped at the third cone on the right, I would have only had the echoes of the ‘old school Tokyo record shop’ from your last post, and “We are the Group F-1”.
The unexpected merits of a little bit of extra metal.
I love their cheerful demeanour, visible even through their masks.
I also enjoy the trails trying to track down your locations lead me along.
Today I came across the wonderfully named Pony Cleaning establishment.
And the even better review of it “The tie was lost normally. It is dangerous.”
Which led me to the revelation it wasn’t a sento for diminutive equines at all. Oh well.
Yeah, they were very clearly having a lovely day out.
Ah, some of the more interesting business names are best left uninvestigated. A long line of ponies waiting patiently for their daily bath really would be something.
or even a guy on a Honda cub/bicycle laden with pony preening paraphernalia.
That’s the kind of moment dreams are made of.
Do kimono clad gals always gad about in twos? These 2 remind me of another kimono ladies photo of yours from a few months back. They weren’t wearing masks that day.
It does seem to be a thing of late. A fun day out I guess, getting dressed up and all that. Masks are very much still the norm though. Likely going to be that way for a long time as well…
