I’ve been wanting to photograph this for years and wondered where the venue was.  I went to Tama station on the Seibu Tamagawa line (from Musashi sakae station on the Chuo Line from Shinjuku).  I was prepared to do a lot of walking – took only about 15 minutes and nearly missed it.  From Tama station, I walked up to the train tracks (about 50 metres), crossed the track and trekked along Hitomi Highway for 15 minutes.  The road curves a little along the way.  When it meets the big junction with Tohachi Highway, turn into that and continue for 3 more roads on the right.  Its easy to miss but on the main road!

The Reversible Destiny Lofts were constructed in 2005 so they are now 9 years old.  The trees and shrubs obscure the facades (originally there was nothing) and I nearly missed it!  It looks slightly old but still in working order.  I was surprised that it was only 3 blocks – I thought there would an entire estate.

The only downside is that it has been directly built on a major highway so noise levels for those occupants must be everlasting!  Great article here on its construction.

Now I wonder if Hilaria Baldwin can do this?  With Alec on top.  That would be impressive …

Absolutely no meaning intended here – just liked the juxtaposition of bright yellow with colour pattern!

ps the yellow courgette was tasteless and the knife is from Daiso and cuts well.
