Snow in Hikarigaoka

A few days ago, I had a great surprise when I woke up. I decided to take a few pictures before leaving to work. Hikarigaoka is a danchi, government developed apartment complex. The urban planning of Hikarigaoka is modernist and reminds me of my hometown, Brasilia. I'll post the pictures of other seasons soon this month.

Nezu Museum

Some pictures from Nezu Museum, from Kengo Kuma.
隈 研吾氏により設計された根津美術館の写真。

The museum was built by kaichiro Nezu, a Japanese magnata. It is located near Omotesando and has an amazingly beautiful garden.
