THE AUSTRALIAN PHOTOGRAPHER + UX DESIGNER HAS LIVED IN TOKYO FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS./ WHEN HE'S NOT BUSY WORKING, HE LOVES TO WANDER THE CITY AT NIGHT HUNTING FOR THAT NEXT KILLER CYBERPUNK SHOT./
WE ASKED ALEX TO SHARE SOME OF HIS FAVOURITE PLACES IN THE WORLD'S MOST POPULOUS METROPOLIS...
"What is not to love about taking a 2-hour cruise in Tokyo Bay, while eating okonomiyaki, monjayaki + enjoying free flowing drinks?! The view of the Rainbow Bridge is spectacular, too. And in the warmer months, sometimes a guy comes by in his little boat + sells you ice cream through the windows!"
"I am a big fan of occasionally treating ourselves to a fancy dinner, + this is one of the more amazing experiences I have had. 7 courses, cooked to perfection in front of you, + then enjoying dessert + a nightcap in their upstairs speakeasy-style bar."
"I love to hit flea markets on the weekends, searching for cool retro toys, old gadgets + especially vintage cameras + lenses. Ohi Racecourse is my favourite, with 100s of stalls + it's open most of the year."
