2020-06-21 THE JAPANESE VENDING MACHINES

It is difficult to resist when you see the delicious illuminated drinks bottles in the vending machines in Tokyo. I was particularly taken with Japanese drinks. The surprise factor also counted here, because I couldn’t read the labels. My daughter Cara is too spoiled for choice here.

2019-05-15 TOKYO VENDING MACHINE

One of the fascinating things in Tokyo was the vast amount of vending machines. I used them frequently, buying cold coconut- or aloe vera-drinks — the perfect break for a photography session. I also liked the non-sweetened ice tea. In Europe mostly you get sweetened soft drinks in the vending machines, which is not suitable for me as a fitness-oriented guy.

2019-05-11 TOKYO TICKET COUNTER FOR SKYTREE

After entering the entrance area to the Tokyo Skytree, we saw at first glance that we did not have to wait long. Luckily, the guide warned against long lines. Shortly after that, we were able to take the high-speed elevator to the observation deck.

2019-03-19 THEME PARK IN TOKYO

I shot the photo from Tokyo Dome and its accompanied theme park from a parachute simulation attraction. The height was about 50 meters; I took the photo handheld at the top. Photo-cameras were not allowed, so I smuggled the camera with me. 🙂

2019-01-16   CANDY STORE IN HARAJUKU

Wandering through the streets was my favorite hobby in Tokyo. The smaller lanes were more diversified. You could see dozens of little shops and kiosks on both sides of the road, from candy stores to electronic shops, from sushi restaurants to boutiques. Often you got new surprises on each corner. The dress of the girl suited well to the colorful interior of the store.

2018-10-30   BUILDINGS IN TOKYO

After a long subway drive, we entered an area of Tokyo, called Odaiba. Our target was the Mega Web Toyota Theme park. Before joining I shot photos from the surrounding, a great place with modern buildings.

2018-09-01   NEAR THE TOKYO DOME

Wandering near the Tokyo Dome brings you to a theme park, that water fountain place on the photo and to a roller coaster. Many restaurants and shops around, and a tower where you can sail down with a parachute. A big fun area which you should not miss on a Tokyo trip.

2017-12-27   TOKYO SHOPPING MILE

The modern, green architecture, trees and plants integrated into roof-gardens and decks, as seen on a shopping mile in Tokyo. Looks cool if roofs of this kind get illuminated in the night. One of the many photo opportunities you get, when walking through Tokyo.

2017-11-25  ENTERING A MARKET IN TOKYO

At my long walking tours through Tokyo I came across that street market. It was roofed with a high diversity of shops. I looked around if I could find some bargains. Then I bought some snacks. With time it became later afternoon, the right time heading to Tokyo Skytree.  😎

2017-11-05  WORLD OF DAIMONDS

At first glance, you might think you are at an art exhibition. Illuminated glass stars designed by a younger artist in a contemporary gallery? But I shot this photo in the elevator cab of the Tokyo Sky-tree tower. 🙂  It brings you to the observation deck on 450 m (1,480 ft).  There you get a great view of Tokyo in all four cardinal directions. And the cab interior is the attunement for something great to come.
