Heiwa Park is s a cemetery of 150 hectare with a large pond and lawn field, its near my residence. Heiwa means peace. I like taking a walk with my camera watching people worshipping, fishing and playing easy baseball. In spring, so many people enjoy sakura blossom with a bento (lunch box) and booze. I think ‘people’ in the cemetery is also looking forward to be with us every year. 20 mins of foot from Higashiyamakoen or Hoshigaoka metro stations.

The bar of bars. I often drop by for a last drink. Dark light, thick counter, nice music and Irish whisky makes me so relaxed. There is another small room at the back and parties are held here irregulary. I spin vinyls, cutting and scratching for these parties. People are sitting back and relaxed, sometime dancing to their favorite old school tracks. 1 min on foot from Kakuouzan metro station.
