2017-06-19  TOKYO AT NIGHT FROM ABOVE

By | 2017-06-04T16:20:57+00:00 June 19th, 2017|Japan|

I did that shot handheld from the parachute attraction in the amusement park near Tokyo Dome. On the wobbly platform during the night, high iso was a must. This shot represents what I love about Tokyo, the streets, the endless sea of buildings and houses and the lights. For some shots, I think you have to do them, regardless if the conditions are perfect for doing photos. I gladly accept some grain if the angle and outcome look cool.

2017-05-10  SWEET DISHES IN TOKYO

By | 2017-05-10T18:00:42+00:00 May 10th, 2017|Japan|

This showcase contained delicious, appetizing sweet dishes, formed fancifully. It was an eye-catcher looking at it, and the taste was excellent. It’s always a good idea, to present food in a pleasing way to one’s eyes.

2017-04-19  STREET IN TOKYO

By | 2017-04-18T19:58:43+00:00 April 19th, 2017|Japan|

I don’t know exactly where in Tokyo I did that shot; I think it was near the Skytree in the twilight. My visit in that city was a flow of long walking distances, steady subway drives and occasionally a cab ride. I had a pocket wifi rental (an obligation in Tokyo) with me, and I was totally impressed by Google Maps. It knew all Subway stations and train transfers and showed it correctly even on my iWatch  🙂

2017-03-31  SHIBUYA CROSSING IN THE NIGHT

By | 2017-03-30T17:27:17+00:00 March 31st, 2017|Japan|

Mostly it’s not exactly fun to go over a crosswalk; it’s different with Shibuya Crossing. The sheer size and amount of people who cross this place with every green traffic signal are impressive. It’s a stampede in the real sense of a word. For me, it is one of the top sights in Tokyo  🙂

2017-03-16 SKY ATTRACTION IN TOKYO

By | 2017-03-13T19:43:36+00:00 March 16th, 2017|Japan|

I tried this benign attraction in Tokyo. You get lifted up on a metal construction with a banister when you have reached the designated height you get a great view of the endless city. After two minutes you hover down with a parachute, all backed with steel ropes. So absolutely save, gives you a bit fun. (But you should be free from giddiness)  🙂

2017-03-10 RAINY DAY IN TOKYO

By | 2017-03-07T20:53:45+00:00 March 10th, 2017|Japan|

In Tokyo, you can experience so many different things. But there are some common typical characteristics you can see again and again in many parts of the city. Those are the colorful (neon)lights, crowded streets with many people going up and down, good dressed Japanese and modern, new buildings.

2017-01-28 BAD WEATHER ON MOUNT FUJI

By | 2017-01-28T00:19:17+00:00 January 28th, 2017|Japan|

I was looking forward to take these real cool Mount Fuji photos, where you see the top of the mountain very clear, surrounded with a bit of snow and a bright blue sky. Unfortunately it happened that the mountain at the 5th station at about 2300 meters was completely foggy with heavy wind. It was no chance to see the peak. Nevertheless I took some photos at the observation platform. 🙂

2016-12-30 TOKYO DOME HOTEL

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:18+00:00 December 30th, 2016|Japan|

Tokyo is one of the most fascinating cities, the sheer size is unbelievable, you can enter the subway in the city, and drive for 1 hour, get out and you are in the city. Its an never ending flow of houses, streets, shops, hotels and skyscrapers, with some parks in between.

2016-11-28 MIDDLE IN TOKYO

By | 2017-01-10T20:15:21+00:00 November 28th, 2016|Japan|

This rollercoaster is not in the suburbs or peripherals, no, you can find it in the middle of Tokyo. From the top, you have a great view, but only for a short time, because it goes down very fast, it was a thrill ride  🙂
