Ebisu Garden Place can be an interesting destination while visiting Tokyo. It is the home to diverse attractions like the Tokyo Museum Of Photography and the Beer Museum Yebisu. But it is much more than that. The architecture of the Garden Place building is interesting in its own right. And there are plenty of other things to see in the area.
I was consolidating my photographs for transfer to an auxiliary hard drive for achiving 2008 photos when I ran across a few more photos of Japanese women wearing boots, this time at Garden Place near the Ebisu JR train station. These photos were taken in late October of this year.
Last week I had the pleasure of staying at the Westin Tokyo Hotel. In addition to being one of the best hotels in Tokyo, it is also located at Ebisu Garden Place. This city within a city is well-designed with a multitude of shops, a Mitsukoshi Department Stores and restaurants. On top of that, it is home to the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum Of Photography. And a beer museum. It is five minutes walk from the Ebisu JR Station and a short hop to Shibuya.
Today, I am taking the JR train from Ebisu to Nakano. Walking from the hotel to the Ebisu station, you can’t help but take photos. Lots to look at.
It’s only about six or seven stations from Ebisu. It the home of largest of the Tokyo new and used camera stores. In fact, it’s four stores in close proximity to one another. The Fujiya Camera Store has lots of camera equipment. There is nothing that they don’t carry. I will post later information about this and other great stores in the Tokyo area.
This week I am in Tokyo. It’s a very good place to photograph people, streetlife and humanity. I am staying in the Yebisu Garden Place area, which is home to a very good museum, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum Of Photography. Besides being close to the nightlife of Shibuya, it is home to many bars and restaurants. It’s easy to get to from anyplace in Tokyo, just head to the Ebisu train station.
As in many trendy areas of Tokyo, it is home to very stylish women. The men’s fashions can be conservative, women’s less so.
