Favorite Media of 2021

I’m sharing this later than usual, but yes, this year again (following 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020)  I’ve compiled a comprehensive and highly subjective list of my favorite media, this time for the year 2021 — that means I limit it to media that was released in 2021, which of course means that there are things that simply don’t make the list because I haven’t yet had a chance to take them in. For every category I start with an alphabetical top 5, fol...

Beautifully bleak scenes of a Japanese village in a snow storm

Before leaving Tokyo for a little while at the end of last year, the snow we were looking forward to seeing wasn’t exactly thick on the ground. By the time we got to our destination, however, it was a different story altogether, and on this particular day, fallen trees blocked the expressway, visibility was often minimal, and shooting was a challenge to say the very least. It was though a thoroughly enjoyable challenge, and when the scenery is as beautifully bleak as this, putting up with a bit ...

The demand for airline-sized private jets has boomed over the years and Boeing has stepped up with its fleet of luxury bizliners — see the 25-year history of Boeing Business Jets

Boeing Business Jets.Boeing Boeing Business Jets celebrated its 25-year anniversary in July, having dreamt up the first BBJ concept in 1996. The program targeted a niche market of ultra-wealthy customers who wanted bigger, more comfortable bizjets. Boeing has added many aircraft types to the BBJ line, like the 737 MAX, 787 Dreamliner, 777, and the 747-8. 2021 marks the 25-year anniversary of Boeing Business Jets, which launched in 1996.

A selection of my favourite photographs from 2021

With 2021 now lurching towards its socially restricted end, it’s time once again to share my favourite photos from the last 12 months. 2021 hasn’t been a good year for many people, and personally it’s one that changed life forever. The tragic loss of my wife Akiko in the summer is still something that feels unreal at times. I miss her enormously, and the daily reminders and memories remain far more upsetting than comforting. A period made just about bearable with the help and support of friends ...

An old and local Tokyo tofu shop

This shop has long been a favourite of mine. Sadly its stunning old sign — which I’ve included at the end — got destroyed in a typhoon several years ago, but even without it remains a truly wonderful looking little place. A fella who lives opposite once told me it has been in business for 100 years or so and supplies some top-class restaurants. While feeding the wealthy, however, it’s still very much a local shop, and the woman in the photos came out of a house a few doors down. Perhaps unsurpri...

An unconscious but still socially conscious Tokyo drunk

Somewhat inexplicably, this young fella decided to take off his belt before drunkenly falling asleep. Yet despite what was clearly a very long Friday night and Saturday morning, he did maintain the necessary social awareness to keep his immaculately white mask perfectly positioned.

The end of the road for a lovely old Tokyo bar

Japan’s many old school bars run by similarly aged owners are always a pleasure to spend time in. The trouble is, what makes them so special also means there’s the very obvious element of the clock ticking ever louder down to those final last orders. Of course some do carry on for a truly incredible number of years, but ultimately time can never be defeated. All of which rather sadly brings me to the little drinking spot below. In business for over 50 years, and the owner well into her 80s, it...

The simple joy of very simply grilled Japanese food

The other week I walked past where the little shack in the last photo was and found a modern, much less shack-like structure going up in its place. The new shop isn’t going to be serving grilled chicken like the old one either, but it will at least be staying in the family, so it’s an evolution of sorts rather than an ending. A sight that led my mind to other, somewhat similar places, which in turn resulted in the series below. A celebration in a way of the simple pleasure of simple food that’s ...

A Tokyo story we will likely never ever know

We all contain stories and painful feelings that only those close to us will ever know. Even then it likely won’t be everything. Then there’s the person sat opposite on the train perhaps, or maybe someone at work — there’s always so much that we are utterly unaware of. Very often there’s little or no hint either, as publicly at least, the vast majority of us tend to keep a good deal inside. The lady below, however, seemed different. It was her expression that initially caught my eye, but then I ...

Old school Japanese restaurants documented over the years

On the whole, I’ve always found bars more interesting to shoot in than restaurants. In most cases it tends to be quite a bit easier too. There’s the atmosphere for starters, plus the simple act of spending longer in a place makes it possible to feel fully at home. Being a very visible foreigner, and a far from common type of customer, it gives everyone else the chance to get similarly comfortable as well, meaning there’s generally little or no concern when the camera does eventually come out. St...
