      thanks. #30 and #31 are with the small Lumix camera. The rest are with the Nikon D700. Sometimes the Lumix gets in to places where the nikon cant.

    Great pics! I love areas like this as it gives a feel for the real day to day life in Japan. I stayed in Nezu mostly on my last trip and really wandered the neighborhood. Even got to enjoy the festival at Nezu Shrine which was awesome.
