アートアクアリウム美術館

@mijumaa

能面 🎭 You know, when you go to an art museum, you expect to see paintings and sculptures. When you go to an aquarium, you expect to see fish and dolphins. But for some reason, the Art Aquarium has artistic installations of fish tanks...and also Noh theatre art?? Just one display? I don’t quite get it, but I’m not mad. Love me some Noh masks. 200923 #latergram #noh #能 #能面 #art #mask #artaquarium #アートアクアリウム #theatre #photography #tokyo #東京

One of the things I’ve always marveled about in Japan is how you’re hardly ever more than a stone’s throw from a Shinto shrine. As Shintoism is a polytheistic animist belief system, you can find shrines almost anywhere—some are big, some small, some popular, some nearly deserted. Sometimes when I find a shrine in the middle of nowhere I can’t help but wonder why it was built. What occurred for people to mark this tree as sacred? Which spirit was worshipped at this spring? How long have these offerings been left there, and how often do people still come to pray? Why do I think so philosophically about shrines? 😂 Many shrines can become wild and overgrown if not tended to, but I think I prefer them that way—somehow it seems fitting that these places built to honor nature would be so entwined with it. Even the torii gate behind me, surrounded by wild grass, wreathed with a worn shimenawa, peeling with age, felt more to me like the Japan I lived in than the magnificent torii of Meiji Jingu did. I’m thankful to have this photo to remind me of that...and to still have my eyesight after frying my retinas while looking dramatically into the distance. Wonderful photography and kimono styling @inkimono 💖 200928 #latergram #kimono #着物 #shrine #japan #日本 #myface #tokyo #asakusa #東京 #浅草

Kegon Falls

@mijumaa

“Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.” And boy, if there were ever anything to wake up a sense of adventure in me, it just might have to be the sight of Kegon Falls cascading 97 meters (318 feet) down from Lake Chūzenji. Shoutout to @elange15 for suggesting we go!! 201001 #latergram #kegonfalls #華厳の滝 #lakechuzenji #中禅寺湖 #waterfall #nature #naturephotography #photography

It’s been a longtime dream of mine to wear kimono, and when I finally got that chance I couldn’t have asked for a more magical experience. What a wonderful memory to have made before returning home 🍃👘 Endless thanks to @inkimono for the styling, photoshoot, and kimono lecture; I hope I can come back for another shoot in the future! (Also, prepare for this to be the first of several kimono photos 😂) 200928 #latergram #kimono #着物 #inkimono #momiji #myface #tokyo #東京 #asakusa #浅草

This photo is from almost two years ago, when I was struggling immensely to adjust to life in Japan. Only a week before it was taken I remember finding a song I felt completely described that season of my life, a song about loneliness and loss of self-identity. At the time the song seemed to sum up everything about who I was, and I was resigned to the belief that those feelings would always define me. The goldenrod I saw on my frequent walks, sunny yellow as it was, always bloomed under cloudy October skies—I thought it looked incredibly sad. But it has been two years, and a lot has changed. I’ve grown exponentially as a human, or I’d like to think I have. My perspective on a lot of things isn’t the same anymore. That song, while still a favorite, sounds very different to me now, and I no longer look at my goldenrod photos and see melancholy—I see hope and beauty even on those overcast, dying days of autumn, and it feels like peace. I have less than a day left in this place I’ve come to call home, but the goldenrod have yet to bloom. I’ll be back in America before they do, and while part of me is excited to return the other part of me can’t imagine my life somewhere else now. What kind of person am I in America? I feel like I finally know what kind of person I became here, in my crater in Japan, but how will that translate to...the rest of my life? It may be a while before I have answers to those questions. And yet, looking at the goldenrod from two years ago, it inspires me to continue moving forward until I can look back fondly on this moment, too. I remember taking this photo and all the emotions that came with it, but the person who took it isn’t me anymore. Now I just have to trust I won’t be this person forever, either. I’ll keep growing where I am planted, and for now, that place is no longer in my crater where the goldenrod bloom. #goldenrod #flowers #nature #naturephotography #photography #latergram

When the dogwood trees bloom, I always think of them as little galaxies with star-shaped flowers. It’s long past the season for dogwoods, but we might all need that starlight these days. To everyone in the path of Typhoon Haishen: we’ve got this. Be safe, be smart, and best wishes from my kitchen barricade. See you when the skies are clear! 咲いているヤマボウシを見ると、星のような花でできている銀河のイメージが思い浮かびます。今はヤマボウシの花の季節ではないんですが、最近大変なこといっぱいあるのであの銀河の星明かりがあればいいなと思っています。台風10号がもうすぐ来るので、沖縄・奄美・九州・韓国のみんな、気をつけて!青空が戻った時、また会いましょう !!💖 (日本語の部分で間違いあったら伝えてください! 最近あまり勉強しませんww) #dogwood #flowers #ヤマボウシ #nature #naturephotography #photography

Every time I take a photo of the sunset from my apartment window, I tell myself it’s the last one. Surely this time is the most beautiful. Surely it can’t outdo itself. I’m always wrong; day by day the sky puts on a better and better show. I wonder if I’ll be able to imagine how beautiful it’s gotten after I leave. By the way: the cloud looks like a doofy T-Rex. Congratulations. You can never unsee that now, and the majesty of this sunset will be forever lost 🦖 #sunset #sky #clouds #nature #naturephotography #photography

Hydrangeas for literal days. Side note, has anybody ever noticed the word “hydrangea” sounds like a some kind of dragon name??
