Hi, I’m Rohan and welcome to my website Tokyo in Pics.  I love this city and spend much of my free time photographing it.  Currently, there are 300 blog articles about it on this website.  And that number is growing.  Hopefully, you’ll enjoy them and come back to see more.  I try to add new material every week. 

To be honest, I only started my photography life about ten years ago.  I was never the type of person who had artistic ability.  But, after picking up my first camera, I haven’t stopped taking photos.  Luckily, Tokyo is a great place for it. It has everything a photographer could want.

Some articles on this website are from 2016, but they are not in chronological order.  There is a reason for that.  They were once on another platform hosted by another provider.  Unfortunately, I grew disappointed with it, so in February 2022, I came to WordPress.


Between 2016 and 2022, I created about 700 articles with 1000s of pictures.  Some of that older material is missing, but I will bring as much as I can to this new Tokyo photo blog.  It’s valuable because this older material will show you how things used to look.  That is one reason why I do this, to document the changes in the city.  If you have any questions or comments, drop me a line.
