Local Matsuri (July, 2018)

I lived in Kamiikebukuro, in Northern Tokyo, from September 2015 to April 2019. As the older buildings were demolished and rebuilt, many young people moved to the area. A weekend of summer festivities was organised by the local shrine in 2018. The odori was held in the park. 

The final tuna auction at Tsukiji was held on the morning of 15th September, 2018. The Inner Market is being relocated to make housing for athletes of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

Koenji Hanami (March 2019)

Every year when the cherry blossom sakura blooms in Japan, crowds of people gather in parks for picnics and hanami parties. 

On 15th April, 2019, an activist group called Extinction Rebellion began campaigning around London. In this picture one of the many protests passes Green Park.

Oxford Circus and a yacht (to symbolise rising sea levels) drew crowds and caused havoc. The local bus services stopped and passengers were instructed to transfer free to their destination via the Underground.

Extinction Rebellion, London (14th April, 2019)

Climate change protesters took over the streets of London in April 2019. It seems ironic people in the UK are protesting when so much more pollution and waste occurs elsewhere

Pompeii (August, 2021)

In late 79AD, Mount Vesuvius erupted, sending a pyroclastic flow towards the city of Pompeii. The ruins reveal a large and jovial town, providing a sense of its lively residents, who decorated both themselves and their homes in opulent finery. However, although once buried beneath layers of ash, the streets of Pompeii are, today, far from deserted, as tourism in Italy regains momentum post-Covid.
