Tea & Magical Lights, Momo Version


 The other night, I did a photoshoot with my friend Momo. It was so much fun photoshooting her! We've known each other for quite a few years now, even before we both moved to Japan, connected first by music. I've done a couple of shoots for her in the last few years, and it's always a pleasure.


Such a pretty bag, I love the colors and patterns.





Awesome shades and arm decor :)


Momo is a really talented artist, and I hope I get to see more of her artwork!
She's originally from New York. 
I want to visit NY one day too!

 


We had tea in this lovely antique tea shop in Jimbocho. What a lovely discovery.
There were some other tea shops along the main streets, but we decided to wait and see 
what else we could find. I'm so glad we waited and came across this quiet, gorgeous place.


 

 After that, we took a walk from Jimbocho toward Suidobashi and Korakuen.
I haven't been to that area for a while, but it was so brightly lit up and sparkly in the night.
Even though there's quite an expansive theme park, shopping, and dining area,
it was relatively quiet on a weekday night.


Oh, the lights, and a pretty smile :)

 




 It was such a wonderful night to take a walk and shoot pictures. I just love coming across unexpected magical places. And pretty lights do make me happy. Thank you for photoshooting with me, Momo!

Momo sometimes performs lives around Tokyo, so please check out her shows if you're in the area!
