Autumn Has Arrived in Tokyo

November 23, 2010

Today, Tuesday November 23rd, was a public holiday in Japan (Labor Day according to my work calendar), so I took the day off to go to a flea market in Yoyogi Park in Tokyo.  While the flea market was big, neat and had tons of great stuff, I actually spent a lot more of my time walking around the park and enjoying the changing leaves.  So without anymore exposition, here are the pictures I took during that walk.

Tree tops, a green sandwich.

Through the trees

The ground through a lot of areas of the park was covered in a blanket of gold leaves.

A little girl exploring the park.

Saving some for later.

    Wow!! What an amazing view!! The trees don`t look much different than ours here in New York. How long are you going to stay there and teach?

        Nice, i’m actually looking at the same camera! What lens? The HD video is supposed to be amazing as well.

        Haha, nice! I got the 18-55mm kit lens, which is decent, albeit cheapo. The video is definitely amazing, but would be even better with a good lens.
