This is a photo blog of Tokyo.
The samurai on the shutter wears these - in my eyes - very uncomfortable traditional Japanese "shoes" / clog sandels (?) I don't know their right name.I saw these "shoes" in front of one of the Kamakura temples. There was a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony inside.Do you have a pair of these sandals, too, Nobu-san?Regards, Uwe.
I find very pretty and clever to decorate the shutters this way. Here we have often ugly graffitis; But I guess you have to wake up to admire them!
Thanks all!!You-wee; It is "Geta"(下駄).I sometime wera it when I go to summer festival.
I love this! I wish the shuttered shops in Seattle were this lively and colorful. :-)
