Japan Drop 1

Japan / Travels

 

Tokyo Tower!  This is one of the first landmarks that I got acquainted with in Tokyo.  I would pass it when I would walk to Temple University Japan (TUJ).  The cover photo is the first time I got up close to the tower and I was truly amazed with the area that is immediately around it.

Zojo-ji is the Buddhist Temple pictured in the first image.  The first time I explored this area was after I went to Minato City Hall, which is really close!  This temple is huge and very interesting.  Arriving in Japan one of the things I noticed right away was the overwhelming amount technology and how well it was integrated in everything .  This is a good example of this juxtaposition of new and old in a simple and effortless way that Japan does so well.

The rest of the images are from the lookout inside Tokyo Tower.  I was lucky enough to be there during sunset.  Seeing the city light up was absolutely stunning.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures! Check back soon for another drop!
