Snapshots from Shizuoka City// Part 2 Chanomachi and Shizuoka after dark

So it's been a few months since I moved back to the UK and I've still not really posted that much about Shizuoka- while I was there I was working a lot and v tired, but I did manage to take some nice shots so I wanted to share them here. These ones are all ones I took on my DSLR, but I have some film ones and some I snapped on my phone which I'll share later <3 

Really yummy Yakitori I had on NYE//

  1. I love seeing these little snapshots because it shows the side to Japan that no one really sees and makes everything seem more "real"!

    1. I'm so glad you're enjoying them <3 Yeah I thought it would be interesting to share more from Shizuoka because it's so 'normal' (and boring haha) but definitely when you go to Japan next it might be cool to visit a smaller town/ go somewhere in the countryside because it's v different from the city!
