[Random Impressions] Between Tanimachi-9-chome and Tennoji

Back in Germany I sometimes enjoyed going for a walk when the weather was nice, but in Japan I really came to love discovering my environment on foot. There’s just something about the little backalleys that suddenly give way to a shrine entrance, surprise you with houses surrounded by flowers and take you on a tour through the neighborhood.

Sparkling new buildings, broad streets, flashing neo signs, loud advertisement – all of this can be very entertaining and interesting to see, but I think without a walk through the often quite lively backstreets, you will never see the whole picture of a place. So today I will take you on a rainy day walk from the Tanimachi-9-chome station to Tennoji station and hope you will enjoy some of those random impressions I captured.

  1. Ha lovely pictures, looks kind of familiar now! πŸ˜€
    Too bad we had the last few days in Osaka rain but anyways we enjoyed it a lot. Will have two blog posts about Japan I think, one for Tokyo and one for Osaka πŸ™‚

    • I agree that one tends to overlook small back streets when the time to travel is too short to see everything to begin with.
      Walking through neighborhoods is now something I really appreciate when I spent more time at one place
