古き良き日本

昔ながら

そこにあるもの

東京のまた違った一面をお見せしよう。古く、趣があり、驚くほどおんぼろな東京を。高くそびえる現代建築のスカイツリーがどこからでも見える下町を歩きならが、人々がどんな生活をしているのか、そしてこの何十年間してきたのかを垣間見る。観光客に溢れた場所ではなく、人通りの外れたユニークで薄暗い歓楽街を探検しよう。

撮るもの・学ぶこと

建造物と人々、両方を撮る。構図や、新しいものと古いものが混じり合ったフレーミングの仕方など、東京の下町の歩き方を知る。人のスナップの撮り方を学び、今後のストリートフォトや旅行での写真を撮る自信もつくだろう。

探検ルート

東京東に位置する曳舟から始める。そこは古き生活スタイルが残っていて、住民も圧倒的に年寄りが多い。そんな昔ながらの狭い路地や通路を探検。スカイツリーを通り、浅草の裏路地に入り、吉原の歓楽街を抜け、昭和感漂う懐かしい雰囲気の商店街がある箕輪で探検終了。

    We were familiar with Lee’s photography from his Tokyo Times photo blog and Instagram feed and thought this would be a great way to see the older, grittier side of Tokyo we would be unlikely to find easily ourselves. Lee is a friendly down to earth guy and he made us feel at ease the moment we met at Hikifune Station.

    We hadn’t gone far before we were walking streets and passing buildings from a different era. The contrast with the nearby Skytree was stark and made for some fascinating photographs.

    Lee’s knowledge of the area and Japan in general is deep and fascinating and peppered with insights we would never have picked up on our own. We saw many unique locations and buildings in various states of ageing and decay, including a long abandoned house with plants growing inside pressing themselves against the old glass windows, possibly the world’s smallest and shabbiest Airbnb, and a couple of lovely old ladies sat on the edge of a small plot who were amongst many people Lee knew and exchanged a few words with.

    We looked at the wares of old style shops that can’t have changed for decades, and the locals who rely upon them. We also took a break at a wonderfully atmospheric old coffee shop and learned yet more of the Tokyo that lies just behind the new, hi-tech and neon Tokyo everyone sees.

    The hours passed by in the blink of an eye and as we parted we felt we were saying goodbye to an old friend. All in all it was a wonderful experience which enriched our knowledge of Tokyo. We will definitely be back for a tour next year.

    Hi Lee,
    Thanks for the great tour on Sunday. I’ve been working my way through the pictures I took, and I have a lot that I really like. The places you took me are so interesting visually. I’ll be back once a month for quite a while, so I hope we can go out again. Also, it was great talking to you about photography in general.

    Experiencing Tokyo’s old neighborhoods through Lee’s eyes was so interesting. It’s nothing like a standard guided tour, and the fact that a standard tour would never take you to these neighborhoods is just the start of it. Any tour guide can talk about a building you’re actually looking at, but Lee is just as fascinating talking about a building that isn’t there anymore. He’ll tell you how there’s real community in these old neighborhoods with people stopping to talk to each other on the street and in shops, and the next minute he’ll actually be having a conversation with an elderly gentleman, commiserating about a big condo going up across from some old shops. If you’re unfamiliar with these parts of Tokyo, I can’t recommend these tours too highly – and even if you are, as I am, it’s an experience you wouldn’t have on your own.
