Just some shots of the never-ending metropolis that is Tokyo.
Please excuse some of the photo’s – I’m still getting used to using my Canon 650D and I was experimenting between night mode and HDR mode to get a good shot! If you have any tips on how to get a good night shot, please let me know 🙂
I would definitely recommend visiting the Tokyo Sky Tree. If you don’t want the crowds, I suggest going during a weekday. I went on a Thursday night around 7pm and there were lines wrapping through the whole ticketing place…around a 20 minute wait.
They have two viewing decks: the Tembo Deck and Tembo Galleria which are at 350m and 450m, respectively. It cost 2000 Yen to go to the first deck and an extra 1000 Yen to go another 100m up which you can buy at the Tembo Deck. In my opinion, there wasn’t much of a difference in view from the Tembo Galleria so I didn’t think it was worth the extra 1000 Yen…but perhaps it’s better during the day? Not so sure…
Although I didn’t go, there is a cafe at the Tembo Deck which would be a nice place to have a coffee or an icecream and rest your sore arms after holding up your camera (obviously I need more muscles…).
When we were going up the lift they illuminated everything in blue above us which looked pretty cool! That was the only steady shot I could get though…sigh…I really need to practice my camera skills.
