This morning I took the train from Omotesando Station to Nezu with Ken's brother Tokuya San. It was rush hour - about 8:00 and the train was packed solid. Tokuya, knowing that I wanted to find new places to photograph, introduced me to his friend Kimiko Takahasi. Takahasi San is a wonderfully warm kind person who has lived in Nezu for the last few years. She took me to beautiful places throughout Nezu and Oeno. We visited the campus of Tokyo University, and then visited many shrines and beautiful gardens. The cherry blossoms are just about to bloom, some have even begun. This is a neighborhood I will most definitely return to. It reminded me of the narrow streets of Boston. Here are a few photos from today.
