Misty Imperial Palace Grounds

Posted in Nature, People by tokyobling on November 13, 2015

The Winter is coming but still the autumn lingers for a little while longer. I took these photos last year from a very misty Imperial Palace outer grounds, with the ground strewn with fallen red leaves and the mist covering most of the pine trees near the grand office buildings of Marunouchi. I hope you have the chance to go out and see the majestic autumn colors around Tokyo this weekend – despite the forecasted rainy weather!

Foggy Autumn Day – Marunouchi

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on November 11, 2015

The autumn if firmly here and it has been a wet and cold one so far. Unusually so. Still, there is a lot of charm to the Japanese autumn, not least of which are the lovely autumn fogs we sometimes get settling over this city literally built on water. I took these photos on one foggy afternoon last autumn, in between the Imperial Palace and Marunouchi, Tokyo’s financial and business district above others.
