Lantern Lights


Kagurazaka is a neighborhood in Shinjuku that I absolutely love because of its traditional Japanese atmosphere. It also has many cafes and shops that make this place a really popular spot.

This is one of the Japanese restaurants located along the main street.

  1. I love the simple design of this restaurant's wall. With the pink lanterns and the shaded windows... it's perfect. It all feels so calm, soothing and private. But, beyond this wall, great fun could be had!! Lovely photo, Kaori.

    Have a relaxing weekend!

  5. Those lanterns in that setting are beautiful. So also might think the great 20th-century, national-living-treasure, woodblock-print-artist Kawase Hasui; like here.

    For any who might be curious there is a brief Wiki article here.
