This time of year, due to their refusing to implement daylight savings time, the sun rises in Japan around 5:30am and gets earlier and earlier. At it’s peak, the sun will come up at 4:40am. It does not matter how good your blackout blinds are – when you have a full on tropical sun shining down on you (Tokyo “feels like” 40-50C in July and August), you are waking up.
The sunrises are beautiful, but I do not miss 4:40am sunrises.
4:30am is uncivilized… but those photos are worth it! So beautiful!
Great photos! … and I’m glad Japan doesn’t have Daylight Savings Time!
Tokyo5, really? I cannot imagine why. Are you a vampire? Like the 7pm sunset in the summer? (smile)
>I cannot imagine why.
I don’t understand liking it.
>Are you a vampire?
It’s only one hour. Not much of a difference.
But changing all clocks twice a year…what a nuisance!

An early sunrise doesn’t wake me up. But, that is a bad thing about it still being dark on winter mornings…too easy to oversleep!
