happy new year








Last Sunday I had coffee with Yoshi, my parents' Japanese friend who me and Andrea visited in January. He was in Malmö for work, and chatting with him about Japan made me want to dig into my vast archive of yet-to-be-edited photos from our trip and show you some of them. Here are a few from New Year's Eve, which we celebrated at Zojoji temple in Tokyo. Those white flying things are 3000 balloons with attached wishes, released at midnight. Among the thousands of people there, only a few were drunk and loud. Foreigners, of course.

Förra söndagen träffade jag Yoshi, mina föräldrars japanske vän som jag och Andrea hälsade på i januari. Han var i Malmö i jobbet, och vi tog en fika och pratade om Japan och Sverige och allt möjligt. Allt prat om Japan fick mig att vilja gräva lite i mitt stora arkiv av Japanbilder jag inte orkat redigera. Här är några från nyårsafton, som vi firade vid Zojojitemplet i Tokyo. De vita flygande sakerna är 3000 ballonger med fastknutna önskningar som släpptes upp i skyn vid midnatt. Av alla tusentals människor som var där var det bara ett fåtal som var berusade och störiga. Västerlänningar så klart.
