1. 1日があっという間に過ぎていく東京の生活。朝起きたと思ったら、満員電車に揺られ、職場では1日中コンピュータの前に座って作業。オフィスを出る頃には既に暗くなり、また帰宅ラッシュに飲み込まれる。

2. 東京は広い。訪れた人は新宿、渋谷、浅草といったよく知られた街に向かいますが、それ以外にも個性的で魅力的な街がたくさんあります。実際多くの都民はそのような街に住み、日々暮らしています。写真を通してそのような街を紹介することで、東京を訪れた人がよりリアルな東京の暮らしや文化に触れる体験をすることにつながればと願っています。

It focuses on and captures everyday life of Tokyo and Japan, covering not only well-known neighbourhoods such as Shinjuku and Shibuya, but also smaller ones where most of the Tokyo people wake up in the morning and go to bed at night. The  project intends to achieve the following;

1. Time passes by so fast in the city. You wake up in the morning and then find yourself standing on a crowded train. At your workplace, you find yourself sitting in front of the computer all day. Night falls by the time you leave for home and again you get back on a rush hour train.
But even on a day like that, your daily life may be filled with beautiful moments, and unless you stop in the hustle and bustle of the city, and look up and around sometimes, you might miss them. TOKYO.IG aims to capture those moments, moments when you are like a movie star. You are the star in your own life and your everyday life is worth capturing in a frame.

2. Tokyo is big. Although Shinjuku, Shibuya and Asakusa are top destinations for most visitors, there are many other places which are rich in local culture and definitely worth discovering. Through photography, TOKYO.IG would like to introduce visitors to those places so that they will have a chance to discover off-the-beaten-track Tokyo. Meet real Tokyo people and experience what locals see and feel every day.
