Tokyo : Oi Racecourse Flea Market

Place: Oi Racecourse Flea Market also known as the Tokyo City Flea Market, Tokyo, Japan 🇯🇵 - I've been to Japan three times and never missed visiting this one Tokyo’s biggest flea market. It has a regular schedule every weekend in the parking lot of Oi Racecourse, with 300-400 vendors. I almost bought a vintage catalogue with 900 pages, probably around 10kg on my last visit in 2017. I ended up finding better small old gems like collectable stamps and Japanese money, old family portraits and vintage ladies magazine. Reminder: This is flea market, not antique market so usually people selling their old stuff or junk. Tip: There's a lot of local elderly sellers over there. Learn this Japanese sentence “Ikura desu ka?” to ask for the price (meaning 'How much is this?') Reasonable bargaining was fine, include big smile and a bit of Japanese goes a long way.

Tokyo : Ginza

I had shot over thousand of photos on my recent travel to Japan. I need to spend some time sorting through and editing those bunch of pictures, but I'll be sure to post them here for everyone to see. I snapped these photos with my Sony Alpha 300a in Ginza. The Ginza (銀座) is Tokyo's most famous upmarket shopping, dining and entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, nightclubs and cafes. This place does not suit my lifestyle, but there are lots of art galleries here. Photographed by Nani P - instagram @travelnani

I’m working on my new personal series - The Happy Mouth Experience, a series of drawings investigating the joyful experience of Japanese food and snacks into a more expository series that examines their pop culture. I explore ideas of identity and memory by re-represent objects. My first solo travel to Japan for a month from 25 May 2012 - 21 June 2012.
