After being delayed by the Yamanote Line stopping last week, after the Shibuya Streets photo shoot, I decided to catch the train to Osaki and then walk to my destination of Shinagawa. The walk was mainly through Gotenyama, which you can see more of in the following photos.
Have a look at this photo from the air to see what is behind the gates.
Do you like to get out and take a walk, or are you more likely to be on the look out for the nearest taxi?
nice reflection here.

shame about the graffiti here

This looks an expensive house.
Narita Express (NEX) stops here, but not very often.
Really nice walk! And the trains … just lovely 😀
*GASP* ! Do you take pics using live-view ?!?!
If I use the Nikon D700 its definitely not going to be live-view, unless I have the camera sitting on a tripod. With the Canon Powershot G10, or in this case testing out the Lumix GF1, then live-view is the only choice. The Canon G10 has a viewfinder but its just a glass window. The GF1 view-finder is an add on extra and I hear its not very good.
When you hover over the photo, in the right hand side menu bar you can see a camera icon and the words “Camera Info”. Click on that and it should show you which camera the photo was taken with.
more like, shame it’s such bad graffiti. Good graffiti can be quite cool and add flair.
Spinning balls, uh?
I guess you couldn’t resist that one 😉
A full set of “yous” with a free “effect”!
Yeah, when I read it back, it does sound strange. “Get your spinning balls here”. 😉
Ahhh, dai ichi keihin my route to walk to the coin laundry mat. That construction project has been going on ~a year now!
Keihin Tohoku, next stop Oimachi !
Do they spin by themselves, or can you spin them yourself?
They were just spinning by themselves.
It never fails, you can always find some type of vendinging machine in Japan.
Maybe another shopping center. Is this near a train station?
I think it will be an apartment or office complex. There is no big shopping center nearby. Osaki is becoming a much more popular place to live and this complex would be 10 minutes walk to Osaki, 5 minutes to Gotenyama Trust Tower and probably 15 mins to Shinagawa. Plus the name Gotenyama on the door of a nice big apartment would sell very well. 🙂
RT @tweetmeme http://bit.ly/603Gej An endless supply of trains to fill all of those tracks. And all the construction going up all the time. If we’re in a recession what gives. It’s the same way over here. People want to shop, so shopping it will be. a great photo walk, gotta make one w/you one of these years :).
I would walk all the time if I lived there. Wish unemployment would lead us there for a job. lol
Sounds good. Wish there were lots of jobs we could just hand out here to invite everyone over 🙂
The last two shots start a bell im my head. It’s some railroad crossing bell you can hear all the time while waiting to enter Kura Sushi.
indeed, the price will rocketed to the sky when the project completed
very nice city I liked it.
