Just came home from a business trip to Japan. I thought I share with you a few pics I squeezed in with what otherwise was a busy time schedule.
Between meetings and dinner I quickly ran off to take a few shots from Tokyo Tower. The tower itself is quite iconic and would make for a great picture target. In talking to other folks I learned that a great place to shoot Tokyo Tower at night would be the World Trade Center. There seems to be an observation platform on the 38 level. If somebody checks it out, please share your pics 😉
Then I had day trip to Kobe for some business. Because I love the Shinkansen Bullet trains I got up early that morning to hang out a bit at Tokyo station. This train does not just look great but it fun to ride it too. The 430km ride to Kobe was done in less then three hours. It would take you longer with by air. In Kobe we had some time to walk by the Kobe Earthquake Memorial of the 1995 quake at the harbor. There is still some damage to be seen where the old harbor was.
And finally on the way home I had a perfect view of Mount Fuji. All I had was about one minute to get the camera out and get that picture. I have to admit that I would have missed it if it weren’t for the flight attendant who was nice enough to tell me. She must have seen me playing around with my camera earlier on.
I guess what I want to say with this post is that if you love photography then take your camera along where ever you go. Opportunities for a few cool shot will present themselves.
Love to read your feedback 😉
