Tokyo, Japan [RESULT]

Post by kumi matsukawa » Sat Apr 13, 2013 3:51 pm

We Tokyo team went to Kawagoe aka Koedo, Saitama prefecture this time.( One of the most well preserved old towns in Japan.) We enjoyed good weather today, so I really got the most of this opportunity. I love this town!

Well, here are my results:

Udon noodle that I had for lunch.

Old, elegant and lively street.

A bell tower called “ Toki no Kane”.

It is such a nostalgic site that I couldn't help using colors that look like a sepia photo.

Late afternoon, we got together in a Soba restaurant and there I had cherry blossom flavored ice cream and rice-flour dumpling.
It was SO yummy!

Then some of us who still had eager to draw went to a bar (before 18:00 till 19:00!) and had more sketching.

Excellent results Kumi. I love your first one, the street view with pedestrians and cars. I wish I was there.

Kumi-san! Great sketches!

I went to Kamakura. It was very good weather!

This one I made in Meigetsu-in.

Image

The old stone torii.

Then I went to the little restaurant. I liked the interior very much.

Thanks for your kind words, martine kervagoret, vincent desplanche, AimerTour, Kim.M., heliodor :D :D :D
When any one of you have chance to visit Japan (Tokyo) and willing to visit there, I'd be very happy to hang around this place together :wave:

Tasha_Voit - These are so beautiful and fresh! I love each ambience a lot! We both visited old towns in different prefectures.

What a beautiful place to draw... the architecture is very beautiful. And the drawings are outstanding!
I like them all, but the portraits inside the bar are my favourite.
