Norm Nakamura / Tokyo Lens Image and Portrait Gallery

I spend so much time taking photos, but ironically don’t have all that many photos of myself. The first time I came to Japan, I sent my family a bunch of pictures. My mother emailed me back saying “don’t forget to get some pictures with yourself in it! You will eventually treasure those memories”

This really stuck with me, and is a large part of why I document so much of my journey on Tokyo Lens over on YouTube and such. We forget so many moments, and despite having a ton of videos, I’ve created this page here as an opportunity to share a few key moments here and there that have been captured in photo.

The vast majority of all photos that I post are over on Instagram (, with a large number of photos making their way directly to Twitter (

Among my favorites, was this shot I took of the Tokyo SkyTree and Sakura in spring 2019
