Finally Tsukiji (inner market) closed for good in October 6, 2018 and moved to the new place in Toyosu. You still can enjoy the outer market to grab fresh sushi, seafood or just sightseeing. I went twice to the inner market to see the auction, it was a good experience—it happened so fast! 📸: 2016
Tunnel of Light by MAD Architects. They just finished their latest work, Light Cave, at the end of tunnel for 2018 Echigo-Tsumari Triennale. Kiyotsu Gorge is worth to visit especially in autumn! And don’t forget to try free foot bath onsen on the 2nd floor at coffee shop near the entrance of the tunnel, not only to relax your foot after long walk, the design of foot bath onsen is worth to visit too! Last entrance 16:00. Don’t miss out like me 😜
For Lots of Lost Window by Akiko Utsumi (2006). To be honest, when I heard about Echigo Art Trienalle, this is the artwork that I really really really want to see. Simple & mindful.
Café Reflet by Jean-Luc Vilmouth (2003). Enjoy lunch buffet with 4 season images reflected on the table & green rice fields through the window.
Tsumari in Bloom by Yayoi Kusama (2003), in every angle. She said that this is her favorite work among all of the open-air sculptures she created for several places in Japan and other parts of the world!
Palimpsest: pond of sky (2018). Again, an optical illusion by Leandro Erlich 😍😍😍😍😍😍
Tunnel by Leandro Erlich (2012). Love his work since visit “The Swimming Pool” at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, January 2017. In real life, you’ll see many tunnel like this on the way to this place from Echigo-Yuzawa.
Rolling Cylinder by Carsten Höller (2012). An artwork inspired by barber pole 💈. It said as you enter the tunnel you will experience a change of visual and bodily sensation. Indeed 🌀🌀
“Gloomy Okinawa”. . Typhoon Trami caused damage in Okinawa. From Saturday, Japan mainland warned for “very strong storm” by Japan Meteorological Agency. Osaka, who still recover from Jebi, was hit again on Sunday. . Last night, Trami passed Tokyo. Though here wasn’t considered as category 2 storm, train lines were shutting down after 8 p.m. and overnight winds were banging on our roofs & doors, stronger than Jebi. . Alhamdulillah. Today is a bright day (the wind still strong but not as extreme as last night), and this week weather is gooood! Ngga ada alasan ngga jemur pakean *teteup 😆
“Serene Autumn”. . Awal pekan musim gugur tahun ini akan disambut dengan typhoon. Kalau kemarin Typhoon Jebi di Tokyo kebagian ekornya aja—ekornya aja udah wuish wuish anginnya—kali ini menurut berita, Typhoon Trami, besok/lusa akan melewati Tokyo. Be safe guys.
The oldest and most colorful temple in #Tokyo, Asakusa Kannon Temple a.k.a Sensōji Temple. No wonder this place always packed with people, either for praying or sightseeing. Or like me, gazing from the top of Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Building, watching the contrast transition color before-after sunset between sky and lamps, waiting to capture the moment 😊
“Universe of Water Particles on the Living Wall” by teamLab. Sepertinya akan skip liat permanent exhibition TeamLab di MORI Building Digital Art Museum, Odaiba. Still consider it though. Meanwhile, let’s enjoy a ‘free’ piece of their work at.... emol di Ginza 😂—karena sekarang akrabnya sama Baby Room akutu 🙆🏻♀️🙆🏻♀️🙆🏻♀️🙆🏻♀️ Note: Unlike Yayoi’s, this is permanent since April’17
Saturdate well-spent 👨👩👧♥️ Finally we try Flipper’s. Just open near our neighborhood in Nakameguro (near Nakameguro Station). To dine in, go to the second floor (they have elevator!). . The tapioca milk tea, both the original and soy hōjicha (ordered to take out) taste good. Both pancake (wheat and the fluffy-airy one) delicious too! Though the serving quite long, it worth the wait 🤗
Dear Autumn, can’t wait to see you around. Can we fast forward to the real autumn—skip the transition season, please? I miss to take a deep breath of fresh air without feel burning sensation in my nose 😂
“The Art of Cropping”. Bukan di Bali, September 2014. . Versi landscape-nya lebih bagus. Cuma ada riders yang lagi nongkrong menikmati pemandangan di ujung tebing Puncak Guha. Karena keindahan alam milik bersama gaes, iya jangan? 🤪 #DilanModeOn
