Design is easy.....?
Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.
Hmm,so the bird looks slightly prehistoric as opposed to an elegant crane but i'm progressing! The other one is a frog....

Other photos from our trip,show me at end of summersonic,leon outside buddhist shrine cleansing his hands and mouth and the view of the Pacific ocean from the temple today.
UPDATE: As an update - the next morning, just before we went to catch our flight. Tokyo had an Earthquake!! The hotel was swaying, we were rocked around in bed, and everything fell off the shelves. It was 5.3 on the richter scale apparently. Wouldn't want to experience anything higher than that - apparently that was quite moderate compared to their usual. The epicentre was around 20 miles away. All very exciting!!

Hottest day in Tokyo this year hitting 40degrees. And we chose this day to take our only major walking trip! Went to Kamakura about an hour or so out of Tokyo to see the Giant Buddha. Also went to the beach and shinto shrine.We placed a wish on one of the wooden pegs and bought some souvenirs.Tomorrow is hometime.sad,but fear not. We will be back....

Went out and about in 'cool' harajuku today.found the design festa too with graffiti and brilliant exterior sculpture stuff.then walked down takeshita-dori which is a street where all the hip and happening young japanese hang out and crowd the streets.felt slightly old!also found the original bathing ape store (picture of my new top below!) before Nigo chummed up with pharrell and it all lost it's mystique as more branches open worldwide.then ate at our favourite fast food place - fujimammas which we discovered last year at summersonic and were itching to go back for more!needless to say a pretty penny was spent today in the scorching heat but great to go back to this district again.Tomorrow is an hours journey out of Tokyo to see the daibutsu -giant buddha and temple.and maybe dip a toe in the pacific seeing as it's near the seaside too!
