Sumida River Cruise in Tokyo with " Town " Japanese calligraphy




This river flows through the center of Tokyo.
Old and new various scenery is seen from here.

Tokyo is a mysterious town.





Something always feels like lying hidden.
The various things are in confusion.

Souls of people excited.





The town where wandering is fascinating.

It is Tokyo.






   "街" (gai, or machi). It is translated as town, street, road, thoroughfare, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Clerical script. 

   Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
    semantic 行 (go)  +  phonetic 圭 (stack of clay tablets)













The island far " east " away from your town.
There is this scenery.

The world is magnificent.

  34. 隅田川が、未来都市を流れている大河のように見え、林立する摩天楼とクルーズ船の対比も面白いです。単色系におさえた色彩や、幾何学的なビルが近代的かつミステリアスな雰囲気も醸し出している都市風景ですね。

  50. Hoje estar aqui no seu blog tem um sabor especial para mim ,
    pois muitas vezes luto para não deixar ninguém sem a resposta
    do comentário deixado no meu blog.
    O carinho recebido é tudo na minha vida
    da forças para minha vida nunca parar
    ou demorar um pouco mais entre vocês.
    A luta tem sido grande , mais a força que emana de vocês
    me fortace na luta de seguir sem olhar muito para traz.
    Quando temos amizades maldade , sem inveja,
    sem preconceitos com os problemas de amigas.
    Nos elevamos como ser humano que passamos ser na vida
    depois de vencer a dura batalha para continuar a viver .
    Um Dia encontrarei solução para minhas perguntas,
    Porque eu meu Deus?
    Nunca devemos questionar porque eu..porque?
    com o tempo conhecemos os porque dos desígnios de Deus.
    È onde aprendemos valorizar um folego de vida
    é sentir que podemos ainda vencer os obstáculos
    imposta para nosso crescimento e evolução como ser humano.
    Até nosso retorno para o jardim de rua de ouro cercada de anjos.
    A cada dia temos uma chance para recomeçar e escrever um novo começo.
    O sol é o mesmo, mas os raios de luz,
    trazem a novidade de um tempo que é único.
    Deus está no comando da sua vida,
    mas Seu amor indica possibilidades para sermos felizes.
    Se for preciso, recomece tudo outra vez.
    Um feliz e abençoado final de semana beijos
    no coração infinitos carinhos na alma.
    Evanir: espero ter deixado um pouco de mim..

  56. Podemos ser felizes com pequenas coisas.
    Sempre faça de sua vida uma eterna primavera com flores sempre a nascer.
    Vida é renovação, é esperança e temos que ter força para lutar.
    Não importa que tipo de vida você tenha,
    apenas viva e tente ser feliz, lute até o fim,
    busque seus sonhos e ideias com toda a força que puder,
    pois com certeza alcançará;
    e no fim de sua vida, você poderá olhar para trás e dizer com orgulho:
    Eu lutei, eu vivi,
    eu busquei, eu venci.
    E os pequenos e grandes obstáculos que enfrentou,
    você perceberá que foram como
    espinhos
    que se foram e se perderam com o tempo.
    Deus abençoe sua semana beijos carinhos meus, Evanir..

  64. I have visited Tokyo twice - for five days once, a few years ago in early December. A friend and I went because another friend, a jazz singer, was performing at the Grand Hyatt in Shinjuku. We had a fabulous time...the highlight of our trip was getting up about 4AM and going to the Tsukiji Fish Market!!! By 7AM, we were feasting on sashimi, sushi and sake at an empty restaurant!

  67. I loved my five days in Tokyo. I went about eight years ago, with a nurse friend - in mid-December and we stayed at the Hilton in Shinjuku. A good friend of ours, a lovely jazz singer, was performing for three months at the Grand Hyatt nearby and she was so homesick. The trip was to surprise her. We got to meet several forensic nurse colleagues from Japan which was so much fun. They interviewed us for the Japanese Journal of Nursing and an article about us appeared in that magazine!!! We also went to Tskukiji Fish Market at 4AM - back when visitors could still go and were eating sashimi a couple of hours later!!

    Tokyo was wonderful...just didn't have enough time there.
