Odaiba Fireworks

Posted in Places by tokyobling on March 18, 2015

A few weeks I was at Odaiba on during their fireworks season and managed to be on time to take a few photos. I am really not good at this sort of photography – some day I would like to team up with someone very good and get some proper instruction! These are all taken free hand with hands so cold that I could hardly control the shaking, it was the steadiest I could get, thank God for heavy cameras! If you are in Tokyo and want to see proper fireworks keep an eye out for the surprisingly regular Odaiba Fireworks!

Sunset Over Tokyo Bay

Posted in Places by tokyobling on February 2, 2015

I have not had an opportunity to do the Rainbow Bridge part of the Tokyo tourist pilgrimage in a few weeks but I still have lots of photos to post. Here are six more that I took as I was walking northwards on the south promenade, towards mainland Tokyo. The bridge closes early in the winter so it is best to be prepared, and to wear warm clothes – the wind can be fierce up there!

More Sunset From the Rainbow Bridge – Tokyo Bay

Posted in Places by tokyobling on January 27, 2015

Nothing beats going for a walk – or as the person in the first photo would surely agree – a run on the Rainbow Bridge at sunset! The bridge itself is easily Tokyo’s most overlooked tourist attraction and should really be on center place in any good travel guide of the Metropolis!

Rainbow Bridge Sunset

Posted in Places by tokyobling on January 19, 2015

I often get asked where to go and what to do by tourists and visitors to Tokyo and one of my standard answers is always “walk across the Rainbow Bridge, preferably at or near sunset”. It might be a little complicated to find the access point near Tamachi Station but not impossible, and no problem at all if you have a smartphone. The better way if you are afraid of getting lost on the way to the bridge is to start the walk from the Odaiba side, and then you can deal with getting lost at your leisure, after having finished the purpose of the walk with not time pressure. I took these just as the sun was setting, on that short walk between Odaiba beach and the bridge.
