Tokyo Sky


One on of our weekends off from work in Tokyo we went off looking for Tokyo Tower and after taking the underground and walking a bit we found what we were looking for

 Tokyo Tower
 Now you could go to the second observation platform but as it was windy that day we only got to the first one you see in the photo
 At least we did get to see out of the windows and look at the city
 So here are the photos I took of Tokyo, remember I took them with 35mm film
If I'd had my digital camera I would have gone mad with it. These were taken back in the 1990's so no doubt looks different no. I'll show more of my photo's from Japan another time
Happy Skywatch

Tokyo at Night



You may have noticed |I have posted pictures from different parts of the world I have visited. I'm still going through my photos trying to find the places I have been that would be of interest. One of my Favourite placed I went to was Japan and while there on one of my visits we stayed in Tokyo in Roppongi right in the centre of the city. We went out for meals at at various restaurant's and one time I took my camera to get some photos of what it was like at night. You will have to forgive me as this was back in the 1990's and I have not got a clue as to where the places are in the city.

 Even at night the streets are busy with people and traffic
 There were shops open and people everywhere
 Don't ask me why but I was drawn to this sign for Konica, I did uses there film but preferred Fuji
 Another shot looking at all the lights, you might noticed on the right is a huge LCD screen
Last this one of the Gorilla on the Hard Rock Cafe where we went to one night
Taking part in Our World Tuesday
