Is the Tokyo Tower. Merry Christmas – and I didn’t even need to decorate it.
The Tokyo Tower is a 2 step process. You pay to get to the first observation deck and then you pay to go to the 2nd level (and take a number which tells you when you are allowed on the elevator).
The view from the first deck ….
I love the way that shrines are scattered everywhere in Tokyo. In this case, between big buildings …
Mt Fuji in the distance. Our house is on the left …
Hello MetLife blimp.
The glass floor. Every tourist must take a shot ….
I found this odd. Merry Christmas seems out of place here.
One more shot through a bigger glass viewing plate.
I have taken a lot of photos of the Tokyo Tower and the skyline since we moved here. A few weekends ago we went to the tower to enjoy the view.
We walked from the Tokyo American Club to the tower, with a few cool views. The tower through a shrine cemetery.
I passed this building on the way there. The Masons are everywhere … they control everything … (smile).
The Hasegawa “Green” building. A very green building.
And standing at the bottom. We were on our way to that top white circle. No clouds in the sky, great view.
I love looking at the skyline on the summer nights. Playing around with Lightroom … Tokyo Tower and a sunset.
Roppongi Hills at night.
I have not been sleeping well – up very early even with black-out blinds – due to the early morning sun (Japan does not implement daylight savings time). It was especially painful the first week we were over, I was up at all hours of the night.
But there are benefits, the Tokyo skyline is spectacular. One particularly beautiful sunrise ..
One very bright moonlit night. It was almost like a 2nd sun lighting the Tokyo Tower (which they light differently on different days).
