Tried to create a diagonal line leading to the center ↗︎ but I kinda messed up the composition and it doesn't really seem to pop the way I wanted it to. Oh well. I like the colours though. 😅😅😅 #composition #photography101

Organized clutter is a common characteristic of more traditional Japanese Izakaya.

The writing on this red lantern (#赤提灯 ) indicates what kind of food you can expect to find at this old fashioned #Japanese restaurant. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Let me know if you want me to post more kanji content! These are kind of fun to zero-in on.)

I cut my bangs! I've been wanting to do it for a long time, and I almost went ahead and did it myself while I was in Aya, but many of you guys on twitter advised me to wait until I saw a hairdresser. So I took your advice! 😚😚😚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've decided I'm going to grow out the side shave. It was a fun year and a half, but I rarely have the chance to show it off anymore, and I can't do much else with my hair because of it. 😊😊😊 Anyway, back to posting city stuff! Bye!

Found a cute little minimalist cafe in Daimyo. Carbon Coffee, with it's simple menu and bright, open, simple interior, is the perfect place to drop into during a sunny day walk through Fukuoka's youngest and most fashionable district. I had the seasonal brown sugar and kinako latte, which was sweet and comforting. 😋😋😋😋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm going to start using the hashtag #micaelaschoice to mark restaurants and cafes in Fukuoka that I think are interesting. If you are in Fukuoka and stuck on what to eat, check the hashtag for geo-tagged photos of my favorite locations!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fukuoka #tenjin #daimyo #大名 #日本語 #福岡 #天神 #fukuokapics #福岡写真部 #cafe #カフェ #オススメ #お洒落 #minimalist #福岡カフェ #福岡カフェ部 #japan #japanese #wheretogo

"Open"
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Many Japanese restaurants will use this sign to indicate they are open, but translated literally it means "doing business (now)." It can be a little bit confusing if you've learned the literal meaning but not the nuanced one. If you see this sign, don't worry, you aren't interrupting anything. They want you to come in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Strolling around #Fukuoka City's trendiest neighborhood, #Daimyo , testing out a new lens for my #LumixG7 . Been really adoring this camera lately.

Tatsu came and surprised me in Miyazaki on my last day, and we saw Cirque Du Soleil's show #Totem together in Fukuoka before I sent him back to Tokyo. I didn't post his picture before because I look like I'm about to cry, but in black and white it doesn't look so bad. Haha.

Tatsu is now working with @odigotravel for the next month shooting videos for their travel website. Some of you might have already seen his work, but if you're curious to see what he's up to, go check out his Instagram feed. He's all over the place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I really miss him.

It feels really nice to sleep in our own bed! This week has been really busy and it's been hard to figure out what to shoot in the city (I feel like I've seen it all a million times before.) It'll probably take some time to feel inspired again. Aya was too beautiful.

My last Aya video will go online in about an hour so I hope you guys like it! It contains vegetarian food and farming! 😊

Japanese Sushi 🍣 Although it's technically a chain, Sushi Zanmai is one of my favorite places to enjoy fresh sushi when I'm alone. If you have the chance to sit at the counter, do it. Get the chutoro!
