I took this picture of a beautiful sky over Tokyo from Odaiba beach, Kaihinkouen. The bridge in the middle is the famous Rainbow Bridge. These skies are the best for photography. I had a lucky Sunday! If you need a new picture for your desktop image, a bigger one is here. Enjoy!
The other day I visited Tokyo’s Odaiba district, the Ariake part and took these photos of the mainland Tokyo skyline. The train line running on the far right corner is Yurikamome line and just in the corner you can see the Ariake Tenisunomori station (有明テニスの森公園) that was completed over 20 years ago but still looks brand new, probably because very few people ever use it. As you can see there isn’t much around here. In the middle of the photo you can see a still undeveloped piece of land which is set to become the new place for the famous Tsukiji fish market, but as of now there’s still not much going on right here as the land needs more preparation before the new construction starts. To the extreme left in the first photo you can barely make out Tokyo Tower and to the right you can see the new Sky Tree tower, the outline is complete but there is still a lot of construction to be done inside.
Continuing the theme of how perfectly normal, sane, functioning and convenient life is in Tokyo, here’s a perfectly average skyline taken from a very tall building in Roppongi. Nothing special. You can think of this as a sunrise, if you see it in the morning. But actually it is a sunset. Hope you like it. Right now, I’m probably asleep, or working, or reading, or taking a walk, or cooking, or meeting friends. A normal day/night/morning/afternoon in other words.
