Day 7: Tokyo Tower

The day wasn’t over yet.

Last day in Japan.

Meiji Jingu Shrine – check
Takeshita Street – check
Shibuya – check
Tokyo Tower – haven’t been there yet!

Last time I visited Tokyo Tower, it was at noon and the sun was shining. This time I wanted to see Tokyo in the night, sparkling in all lights…

So I headed to Kamiyacho when the sun had abandoned this day. The tower looked absolutely wonderful in the dark, lightened in yellow and orange.

Tokyo Tower is rather high, but there’s actually a higher building in Japan nowadays: The Sky Tree. Shun, that I met earlier this day in the Meiji park, told me that the Sky Tree was the second highest building in the world and it was opened for the public in May this year. I didn’t go to the Sky Tree this time though, since it required reservation. I was satisfied with Tokyo Tower. .:-)

Watching Tokyo by night was magical. The view was breathtaking and I wish I could transfer it to a photo, which of course – is hard to do. I recommend everyone to visit Tokyo Tower by night.

I can’t believe I have to leave this. So soon. Tomorrow.
I don’t want to. Let me stay.

I will always love you, Tokyo. Hope to see you soon again.

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
