Tokyo Photo Book - 東京情景

Another photo book has been added to my collection. This time I made a Tokyo one called 東京情景 - "Tokyo Scenes" and I put together the photos I have taken and shared here since I started this blog last year.

And yes, I have said before that I will have a thank you giveaway when this blog had the first anniversary a while back. It has taken me so much time to finally get to do it but yes now I'm having a giveaway keeping my words! I would like to give 2 of my loving blog readers a copy each of this little tokyo photo book to thank you for all your support over the year (and a bit) as all your comments have always made me happy and helped me keep this going :) So if anyone is interested in receiving this little book please let me know in your comments. I will pick two winners on Sunday evening!


I have made quite a few photo books over the last 5 years, all made with photoback but I've been wanting to try blurb. Maybe next time!

ALSO.... as I mentioned earlier, check out Ebony's Hello Sandwich Tokyo Guide Zine! It looks woooonderful!!!

    I would love to get one of the books, I am a sucker for Japanese culture and I am planning a trip to tokyo next year. It could be great to be inspired by your fantastic book. I would love to get one.

  14. my first comment here... i don't dare to visit often, i'm almost sick missing japan so much. your book(s) look great!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ah! Sorry, I made a mistake! I was supposed to write 'congratulations on your new book'! I'm such a nut.

    ReplyDelete
  16. so beautiful ... I made my first one about Poland few weeks ago ...

    ReplyDelete
  17. 今回は初コメントです!いつも楽しく拝見させていただいています。Hikiさんの写真いつもきれいでうらやましいです!私も写真うまくなりたい!

    「東京情景」ほしいです!当たるかな…

  18. Oh wow. A special edition Hiki book! Who wouldn't want that?! It looks gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really want one! Looks amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I also thought that you had bought the book at first. You should sell them. Your photos are beautiful. I would love to have one.

    I've seen some pictures of Ebony's zine online - it looks fantastic! I wish I was returning to Tokyo some time soon!

    ReplyDelete
  21. oh my! it looks gorgeous! i want one!

    ReplyDelete
  22. oh congratulations on year one, hiki! they are all amazing books, do share more beautiful pages with us, i love the colours and mood of the tokyo one!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I will have to check out those photobook-making websites; yours look beautiful and professional! Though, I'm sure your great photography and eye for design have a lot to do with that ;)

    Please enter me in the draw; I'd love to have one of these beauties for myself!

    (Oh haha, I just clicked and saw that Photoback is in Japanese, haha. Well, hope I can find a service that binds in a similar style, rather than with a hard spine like blurb. Or, maybe I'll just have to get kinda crafty and make my own, zine-style lol!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. oh wow, it looks gorgeous!
    I am not sure if I have before left a comment here but I've been reading you blog for a while already and it's lovely:)

  27. your photography is very beautiful. the book looks lovely. from the looks of it though, you may want to stay with photoback. blurb is good, but i don't think the quality may be as good as what you've been using.
