A Drink with MACRO Nikkor at Bar

The main building of the historic Hotel Okura Tokyo closed in end of August 2015 for demolition and a rebuild. The Orchid Bar in a main bar of the Okura was a relaxation place for the old gentlemen boys in Tokyo.

Hexagonal Okura lanterns hang like nostalgic beads from the ceiling. Afternoon daylight sun filters through wooden latticework and shoji screens (paper screens). Curved 60's modernist chairs surround lacquerware tables like the petals of a plum blossom.

Bar Time with Nikon Camera

Oftentimes, a good hotel bar has soft lighting, unobtrusive music, and delicious drinks. It's fun to talk with friends. If you and your friends have the same hobbies, the conversation will be very exciting. The topic of photography and cameras is more peaceful than political and soccer games.

A Drink with MACRO Nikkor 19mm F2.8

The Hotel Okura Tokyo was reborn as The Okura Tokyo in September 2019. The pentagonal "Okura Lanterns" that drip from the ceiling of the lobby and the windows layered with washi (Japanese traditional paper) that gently diffuse the harsh sunlight, have all retained the charm of the original lobby.

What sets Fujiya Hotel apart is the mystique it gains from its storied past. Founded in 1878, it is one of Japan's oldest hotels, and the architectural styling is representative of the changing Japanese society during the Meiji era with its blend of traditional Japanese and western influence.

Lens Makes You Happy

If you have a camera that lets you change lenses, like most mirrorless or digital SLR or film SLR cameras, then I highly recommend spending a little bit of money on a macro lens. Lens makes you happy. This is true.
