After a few glorious days in Nikko, we headed to Tokyo as our final destination on the trip. Having become used to the clean mountain air and quiet town ambience, it was a bit of a shock entering the big city. Although I enjoyed experiencing Tokyo, to me it seemed very similar to New York City and many other large cities. We stayed in a great hostel, walked many, many miles, ate even more delicious Indian feasts, and drank milk-tea.
Day Thirteen – Tokyo
In the Imperial Palace Gardens.
In the Minato area.
A capsule hotel!
The Tokyo tower (pictures from the top a little further down).
Our Bible for the trip, Lonely Planet Japan. The LP books are full of invaluable information.
We stumbled upon the Zozo-Ji Temple and more Jizos (baby gods).
Paul and more baby gods.
A few views from atop the Tokyo Tower. I set my camera on a handrail for long exposures, but tourists kept on bumping into the rail, so none of these shots are super clear, but still neat.
Day Fourteen – Tokyo (our last day in Japan!)
We spent the day in Subways and on our feet, randomly exploring the city. While in the Harajuku area, we were shocked to find a stable smack dab in the center of the city chaos.
Loved the lines (power and clothes) every time I looked up.
We accidently stumbled upon this lovely temple too.
A little residential area.
This is one of the last frames I took while in Japan.
Well, this concludes my posts of our daily adventures in Japan! Although this day-by-day series is over, I will undoubtedly share more Japan images later on and will be selling some fine art prints. Thank you for viewing these images, and for your comments and encouragement. Traveling and documenting my experiences while in Japan was an incredible experience. I can’t wait for the opportunity to do more travel photography, hopefully in the not so distant future.
