It's been another very good holiday in Japan. For a treat I decided to come to Tokyo alone for two nights to do some "me time" including some photography in this amazing, vast and crazy city. I'm staying in a cool little Guesthouse in Kuramae and decided not to venture too far - to Asakusa, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Akihabara. It's been a lot of fun but too hot! By 1pm today I was exhausted shooting in Akihabara so came back for a chill out and a shower. Hopefully I will have enough energy for the Sumidagawa Hanabi tonight!
First, some shots on Tokyo's sprawling rail system.
Shibuya. Home of the largest pedestrian crossing in the world - and it feels like it! Wow! A great place to shoot and got lost in the crazy and colourful backstreets
The ever amazing Shinjuku - including Golden Gai and Yakitori alley. Fantastic for early evening photography in 'old' Tokyo
Asakusa and Senso-Ji. Busiest I've ever seen it and full of the ubiquitous tourists wielding selfie sticks!
Akihabara was fun but I was getting pretty hot and tired by then!
