Tengoku, (heaven). Well this time it's tenkuni (paradise).

For an episode of NHK's weekly television art program "Sunday Museum" they filmed me shooting pictures of Aoyama cemetery from the back window of a taxi. After that we headed over to Ginza’s 4th district for the last scene of the show. Here I was photographing on the streets- it was a Pedestrian Paradise Day, one of those Sundays when they close the place off to cars.

The wrap-up party with the crew was in Ginza's nearby 7th district. We ate tempura at a place called "Tenkuni".

See? That's why this isn't "To Heaven", but "To Tenkuni".
