When I first came to Tokyo I spent a lot of time in Harajuku. I’m not talking about once a week, but almost every day. At that time I could walk there from my home in about 30-40 minutes. Ahh those blessed days with too much time and not enough money… I loved navigating the smaller streets and alleys as I got used to the area, always discovering some new treasure. I miss having that time to just “be”. Now that I’ve gone fully freelance I know I can create my schedule, but I have yet to find a good balance where I can take time off and really chill. Hopefully soon, now that the days are a little bit cooler.
This week’s Tokyo Walking shots are from in and around Harajuku.
All were taken on May 1st, 2011.

I sometimes wish that I had more space to take some of these shots. I’m a bad enough photographer as it is without cramped space making it even harder to aim right. ;P
