    Yokohama, Japan
    This is the 3rd Lomolocation in my series documenting last December's trip to Japan, and it is one of my top favorite areas that we visited. Yokohama, which includes the famous Ferris Wheel once "destroyed by Godzilla," and the Ramen Museum in the Shin-Yokohama district.

  • Shibuya (Tokyo)

    Shibuya (Tokyo)
    Tokyo is one of the largest and biggest metropolis in the world. And within the twenty-something districts there is the whole multitude of cultures and characters, which you can imagine. The most modern and young ward of Tokyo is Shibuya. Everyone above 25 years old is quite a vintage machine, but don’t hesitate to go there anyway. The place is crowded all day long and consists of giant department stores and specialists.
  • Karaoke-Box in Roppongi

    Karaoke-Box in Roppongi
    In my point of view Karaoke is such an important part of Japanese Popculture as Manga and Anime. Because the ambitious salary men of the island are working 24/7 they surely try to enjoy their free time at the max. Invented in the 70's the idea of making yourself a clown by singing your favourite songs in front of a large crowd. In Japan it is quite common to book entire karaoke boxes for some hours. Fixed by this idea we made this entertainment our program for new years eve. First we looked around Shinjuku, but nope. We found our spot in Roppongi, which is the new nightlife quarter of Tokyo. There are entire Karaoke-Buildings, that have boxes on several floors, which are decorated in movie- and music-themes. The rent of the box is paid per the amount of people singing. So this is reasonable, but cheap it isn’t. You also have to buy drinks, maybe you right away take the flatrate. In the box we needed 10 minutes to figure out the system to choose songs and we were anxious to get the action on like in “lost in translation”. Finally we figured out that there is a display which takes the orders and sends them to the prompter via Bluetooth. There is also a telephone-book-size instruction from which you can also choose songs.

  • Shinkansen (Tokyo)

    Shinkansen (Tokyo)
    While I write this story I am sitting in a regional Spanish train. He will take around two hours for a distance of around 200 kilometer from Valencia to Alicante. No comparison to the undisputed heavyweight champion of the rail-racing world: The Shinkansen.
  • Harajuku

    Harajuku
    Not for the faint-hearted, Harajuku lies between Shibuya and Yoyogi in the japanese metropolis, Tokyo. On any day of the week you will find the small area full of people either shopping, eating or just hanging around looking painfully cool. Packed with expensive and exclusive boutiques as well as more affordable shops this is the place to come if you want to be "seen".
  • Godzilla (Tokyo)

    Godzilla (Tokyo)
    One of the great heroes of mine surely is Godzilla. The big fellow from the seaside, who was created through atomic pollution by American evildoers in Japan. Hence Japan was bombed by A-bombs the whole multitude of nuclear pollution was a very relevant dramatic element. The character was created in 1950s and was instantly a major success in the Japanese Cinema. This is grand B-Movie-History. Up to date there have been 28 movies made and the next big thing lingers around the corner. Rumors say, that there will be another epic Japanese G-Film soon.

  • Haunted Love Hotel

    Haunted Love Hotel
    Nestled in the drinking districts or on the outskirts of every city in Japan are the greatest hotels on Earth - Love Hotels. Cheaper than a business hotel and equipped with such amenities as karaoke machines, Play Station, disco balls, slot machines, sex toy vending machines (and one hotel in Nagano has a bed that will glide 15 feet back and forth across the mirrored room) they are a great places to spend an afternoon or a night.
  • Temples in Kamakura

    Once in Tokyo take the train towards Kamakura. Stop at the Kita-Kamakura station. The walk from North Kamakura to the city center is full of amazing temples where you can take a rest. Once in the center, take the train towards the coast and stop at Hase station. There you'll find the temple with the great Buda. This is a very spiritual stroll.
  • Rt. 507 Sagamihara

    Rt. 507 Sagamihara
    Not too far from where I rest my head, lies the Rt.507 tunnel. I don’t know what it is about this spot that gives me chills, but I’ve driven by this place a handful of times. And I just think how rad it would be just to wander around this tunnel.
