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).

      • Do you actually like Daylight Savings Time??
        I’m glad Japan doesn’t change the clocks … I don’t miss that at all!

        Anyways … very nice photos!

        • I can honestly say that I miss daylight savings time … It would be nice if it didn’t come streaking in at 4:30AM. Plus with the big push on conservation of energy, I cannot believe that someone has pitched daylight savings time as a way to save money on lighting.

          • Actually, after WWII, America imposed Daylight Savings Time on Japan.
            It wasn’t popular at all…and was quickly abandoned.

            A few years ago, a politician here proposed to bring it back…but he was out-voted (thankfully!).
