Coming of Age Day (成人の日) is a celebration for young ladies and gentlemen, for the day that they become “adults”. Many cultures in the world have similar celebrations and Japan as well. It was nice to see all those young ladies with their kimono :)
That day, my friend Danny Choo took the occasion to organize a meetup for a photoshot of the girls and then a photowalk around Shibuya
Tonight! It was the Tweetup Tokyo 2009 at Ebisu (Tokyo) near the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography where an exposition of Keizo Kitajima is getting place. A nice and great event with the participation of Biz Stone (@biz) Co-founder of Twitter, Inc. and many people from the internet, blogging and technology community in Tokyo, like my friends Danny Choo (@dannychoo) and Steve Nagata (@stevenagata)^^;
They explained the growth of twitter in Japan, just as a phenomenon compared to other countries, and how it’s influencing the way Japanese interact in internet.
I love this kind of events specially for the great mix of people that you can find there. There are IT guys, artists, photographers, journalists, writers, hard beer drinkers, everything. It’s a mix but it’s creative.
Some pictures of the confidential party at Tangerine club, last Saturday.
I went there to listen to my friend Marco as a DJ that night. He is trying to introduce Trance music in Japan.
It was a nice party and a good moment to take pictures in a really hard environment. Taking pictures in concerts and clubbing with low light conditions and people moving all around is not an easy task but it’s really funny :)
