There are always so many oppurtunities for photos around Tokyo, especially when night falls and the lights come on… its the classic shot of Tokyo; the vertical advertisements underlined by the streaks of white and red traffic.

Yet we were unable to catch the shot, this photo was taken in the few seconds it takes a security guard to spot you taking a photo, walk over and stop you from taking the photo. It began to get frustrating, we had been here three days and only managed a handful of decent night shots.

We know there are thousands of photos of Tokyo at night, but its nice to have one that you took, so planning a night shoot when we had the time was in order, rather than taking them as we rushed for the last train…

A tired cab driver waits for the traffic lights to change- Akihabara turns in for the night about 10 o’clock.

Even at 11:00pm Tokyo was still going as we made our way to the Ginza metro stop.

These two structures are found directly opposite from each other across a quiet road in Harajuku. One a modern garage and one a traditional torii.
