A Few Locals

In this post, a few of the Tokyo locals who caught my eye… whether it was because of: quirky hair, cute/way-out/contrasting fashion, mobile device obsession, bicycles.

I did not manage to capture as many people as I would’ve liked. Had I been on my own, I would have loitered on street corners, stayed put in certain spots rather than strolled through. Sometimes, it’s challenging to find a balance between one’s desires and those of one’s companion – especially when on holiday! So I had to settle for whatever I could grab on the run…
