During my stay in Tokyo, I took a time to go to the spot where I photographed the below. This is the underneath one of the busiest junctions of Tokyo Urban Express Highway. Generally, I am not that big fan of this kind of architectures and watching this busy traffic roads.
This junction however fascinated me for sometime, and I wanted to make a visit one day. Even now I can not explain why this spot was, but it was certainly on my list of photography spots to go.
Maybe because I was impressed at the way how each of six highway roads spread out.
Or maybe I wasimpressed at the structure the way how each highway road stack up.
Or maybe both.
It was not recent that I realized and found it interesting that this spot was called ‘YAMATA-NO-OROCHI’ (Japanese mythical dragon having eight heads and eight tails) via net viral, due to its look as if multiple snake heads spread out.
It was no nature photography but it was another great opportunity to take for me.
One photography spot name in the long list was ticked off. 🙂
I managed it doing some night photography in Tokyo a night before I left for return to Sydney.
Here is Tokyo Station, Marunouchi Exit side. Tokyo Station has two main exits; Marunouchi, and Yaesu. The each side is very different and I like Marunouchi side better simply due to this classic architecture built in 1915. It is annexed to a hotel business on upper floors.
I came to photograph this classic architecture a year ago and caught some shots, but at that time there were some re-construction works underway in front of this station building and the construction curtains also covered a part of the building. It’s why I was glad to be back to the spot again.
Well, the construction was finished, but there were still another bunch of tents installed in front of the building (see below). Looked like they were for some events to commence at small garden space in front of the building. I must have got no chance to see utterly full view of the building with zero visual obstacles. 😉
Being so, the station building was still beautiful at night. I hope you enjoy them too. 🙂
When I go to Tokyo, catching sunrise / sunset is somehow a bit harder (just) for me as a subject, and catching lights are a bit easier.
Here are photographs out of which I caught in one early evening at Shinjuku. I’m glad to be able to tick off a name in my ‘list of spots to photograph’.
Being said, I hope to be back there once again in a little earlier time which I expect some afternoon light will dye the background in orange / gold. I am not sure if I can make a time for, or the name of the spot will be left on my list without tick. 😉
Anyway, I will close this post for now as it will make no sense to continue writing with unreasonable concern.
