Colorful Tokyo sidewalk on a rainy fall day

古い青梅街道で、素敵なイチョウの黄色い葉が楽しめます。

The kilometers of mature gingkos lining Omeikaido make this wide and busy boulevard much more enjoyable. The yellow leaves are now, of course, all gone. But since I am posting more film photographs, I want to share some of my favorite fall photos that were recently developed. Fallen gingko leaves, school uniforms, umbrellas, face masks, and a slow-moving sidewalk bike are a perfect urban scene.

Fieldwork event with Shibaura House on a rainy day

先月は芝浦ハウスでフィールドワークとグリーンマップのワークショップをしました。日本語で人類学を説明することがちょっと難しかったですが、参加者が創造的で知性的な方たちばかりでした。芝浦ハウスも写真をのせています

Last month I lead a fieldwork and green mapping workshop at Shibaura House. Despite the rain, participants seemed eager to explore Mita and Shibaura and to record the city with fresh eyes. It was a challenge for me to explain anthropology in Japanese. Shibaura House also posted photos.
