Fukagawa Hachimangu Matsuri (41 images)

Went to check out the Fukagawa Hachimangu Matsuri today in Koto-Ku, Tokyo. Based on the website, this festival is one of the Tokyo’s Three Greatest Summer Festivals, in which people scattering water drops over Mikoshi carriers. Kodomo-Mikoshi (46 portable shrines carried by children) parade in the neighborhood. It was definitely a sight to see, a […]

Went to check out a local sunflower farm nearby since it’s in season right now. It was pretty overcast today, wish there was a little bit of sunlight to shine on the crop, but no luck.

Yokohama Fireworks (17 images)
Yokohama Fireworks (17 images)

Tonight we made the trek out to Yokohama for an annual fireworks display that’s put on during the summer. The fireworks are shot from a barge in between the coast of Yokohama and a US military pier, Yokohama North Dock, and it’s a pretty spectacular sight since it’s so close together. Tried doing something a […]

Hawaii Summer Rush (61 images)

Here are some shots I snapped over a 9-Day stopover I had in Hawaii. Tried to make every single day count, shooting cars, meeting up with friends, eating good food, and finding myself. After editing all these shots, I’m starting to feel a little homesick…

Cherry Blossom (11 images)

season came and left within a matter of a week. This year it seemed some of the trees were a little too early or too late due to the inconsistent temperatures and random high winds and rainy days. Nevertheless, it was definitely another beautiful sight to see. Here’s a few shots I snapped right before […]

Blood in the Snow (17 images)
Blood in the Snow (17 images)

It was dumping snow in Kanagawa this morning, definitely a first for me since arriving here over a year ago. I decided to snap some shots of the Red Baron out in the fresh powder. Definitely loving this weather!

Stratos Pista (11 images)
Stratos Pista (11 images)

Snowed last night, enough to stick on the ground. We haven’t gotten much snow here this year so tonight was definitely a treat. Decided to take the pista out for a few shots in the heavy snow. White on white is just looks so clean.

Ralph’s NJS Samson (13 images)
Ralph's NJS Samson (13 images)

On New Years Eve, I was able to shoot Ralph’s newly finished NJS project. Definitely a different build from his previous NJS Bomber Pro; all freshly polished Suntour components really set the frame off. I’ve grown to love how well these hand-built frames ride and look. Each frame is handcrafted and tailored to fit each […]

For The City (16 images)

During my vacation in Hawaii, I was able to hang out with my good friend Casey. I’ve been dying to see his bike ever since he built it up. Being away for 10-months in Japan doesn’t give you very many opportunities like this to snap shots overlooking downtown Honolulu. Such an amazing view.

While hanging out at a friend’s house, Stone rolled up in his new ’60s Porsche project. He recently tuned up the motor and gave the car a fresh new coat of paint, all out of his own garage. He’s completed many other builds including a classic VW bug; I’m looking forward to see what he […]

Offroading (13 images)

I woke up at 4AM yesterday in hopes of going to another awesome Sekidobashi (Bicycle Swap Meet) that’s held only twice a year. When I arrived in Fuchu, there was only disappointment and a ton of rain. By tradition if it rains out on the Saturday the swap meet is held, the meet is postponed […]

Enoshima (16 images)
Enoshima (16 images)

Did a short ride around the coast of Kamakura and Enoshima this weekend to change things up from my usual routes. Enoshima Island is a popular attraction with many shrines and gorgeous views of the coast. On a clear day, the island has a great view of Mt. Fuji; however, it was too foggy on […]

My last TNR (Tuesday Night Ride) in Hawaii on 2/1/11.  One day I’ll be able to ride with you all again…

Unseen Footage
Unseen Footage

My friend Mark surprised me with a video of long lost footage before I left Hawaii. Makes me miss riding there so much.. Being able to ride with my friends is something I’ll hopefully be able to do in the near future. But for now, all I can do in reminisce. Such good times.

Sekidobashi (36 images)

It’s been a while since I’ve last updated; over a month since the 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck the Tohoku region, which rocked most of Japan and created so many new uncertainties for the well-being of many people here. Whether it being the initial earthquake, the record 33-foot tsunami that wiped out many towns on the […]

Week 2 in Japan (64 images)
Week 2 in Japan (64 images)

I think it’s finally sunken in that I’m going to be here for good for a couple years. I’m slowly getting my routine down, starting real work tomorrow and somewhat know my way around just by walking everywhere. I’ve grown accustomed to the “slow” lifestyle of walking everywhere, which will only get faster once I […]

Week 1 in Japan (87 images)
Week 1 in Japan (87 images)

It’s been a long week, with tons of paperwork, learning, eating, photos, and definitely walking. Traveling to Machida, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku were the highlights of my week; hopefully, I’ll remember how to get back there on my own. Like many people have said before, I’ve never been to a place that served junk food. […]

Lookback: One Last Sunday Ride (94 images)

I’ve been pretty busy trying to settle in over here and never got around to editing all my photos from back in Hawaii. This album was from the last Sunday ride I shared with my cycling family. The weather didn’t cooperate much, but it could’ve been worst; it rained in the morning and stormed at […]

Featured: Lance's Accord Wagon (40 images)

A day before I left to Japan, I had the honor of shooting Lance’s wagon. I’ve watched him build up this car ever since he bought it, and I must say, it’s come a long way from the stock, family station-wagon it was before. This beauty made its first appearance in 2004 at Hawaii’s elite […]

A Weekend on Maui (74 images)

So we decided to take a short journey to Maui on Martin Luther King weekend to enjoy one last vacation before I leave to Japan. It was a great way to escape reality and take in all of what the islands have to offer. We stayed at the Sheraton at Ka’anapali and had a nice […]

An Island Ride to Honor Zach (36 images)
An Island Ride to Honor Zach (36 images)

was completed yesterday with most of our fixed crew and a few guests including Mazie who is one of Zach’s good friends. I have to admit, everyone rode hard and made a helluva effort climbing up all the hills and getting through all 100+ miles around the island. I give a ton of respect to […]

Ride In Paradise Zach
Ride In Paradise Zach

Yesterday was Zach’s funeral, where over a thousand people gathered to celebrate and remember him. It really puts things into perspective for me of how many lives he’s touched in the short time he’s spent with us. I can’t stop thinking about how bright his future was and how much of a star he was […]
