Tokyo Illuminations 2016

It's that time of the year again where Tokyo is strapped with bajillion colourful light LEDs, because, reasons. I still have no idea why but I can safely assume that it's due to holiday season and everyone is on holiday mood? Maybe. Anyway, I went out to take photos. So…

Showa Kinen Park, Tachikawa

My quest to hunt for more autumn colours lead me to Showa Kinen park in Tachikawa, as suggested by the Instameet organisers. It's less than an hour train ride away from home and according to reports, it was slightly off peak; which is great enough for me. The hard thing…

Instameet: Koyo Hike

Ah..it's autumn, my favourite season of the year. Colour explosions everywhere. Lovely. Naturally, capturing autumn was THE obvious choice for the next instameet theme. Seeing that I'll miss autumn's peak in Tokyo (flying back to Malaysia in mid Nov), this is a good chance for me to capture the…

500px Red Bull Photography Global Photo Walk / Tokyo

Some of my fellow instagrammers invited me to a photowalk meetup; 500px Red Bull Global Photowalk in Tokyo; something like that. Maybe due to the fact that the group was pretty huge (there were somewhere around 100+ participants roughly), the group were somewhat stretched apart as we walk around Tokyo.…

Instameet: Kamakura

Kamakura is a city located in Kanagawa Prefecture, 40 minutes train ride away from Tokyo. Although it's called a city, it's actually more of a town. A tourist trap town. I love this place; been here 3 times and I still haven't fully explored the place yet. Also, this is…
