Izakaya, Okayama 3

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 29 August 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Here are some shots I took in Okayama just before I went away to Tokyo. An izakaya is a type of Japanese restaurant; I've got many shots of them scattered through my archives.

Masks decorating the wall above our table.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
