I know there is a lot of pressure for the Nakagin Capsule Tower to be pulled down and a new building to be put up and replaced and I do understand that there are market forces involved but it would be a real shame that such a iconic building would be lost to future generations.
I was fortunate enough to come across the Ken Fox troupes Wall of Death at the 2015’s Bristol Volksfest and seeing as I have never seen a wall of death performance before I thought it would be interesting to see.
There was some great riding skills on show and it was all very entertaining and it looked like they were all enjoying what they were doing and the crowd were all appreciative of their efforts on putting on such a good show and to be honest I thought it was really great and it completed an already great weekend.
I only had a short time to spend with him but managed to take a few photos of him working on a car great painting skills.
I found it very calming to watch him work and could have stayed a lot longer a real shame I just didn’t have the time ……
While exploring Tokyo I came across this little area that had loads of boats used for tourist and fishing moored up in I think Shiba, Minato City. I had a very pleasant half hour exploring around the boats and how the old and new worked well together with motorway and trains all around it and above, as well as factories and peoples houses and even though the area was very busy it felt very calm and peaceful!
I managed to make the Sunday performance down in Bristol docks and this time the guys had 3 flyboards on the go, making it quite impressive to watch and I think a big favorite of the crowds that saw the performances over the weekend.
Hopefully flyboading will become a regular event at the harbour festival in the coming years.
