Night Views

July 12th, 2007

Here are some night views from the balcony. Some really good views out there, especially on a clear night (we haven’t had too many of those). The first two images have blow-ups (well worth looking at!):


The above is a slightly zoomed-in view of downtown Tokyo, with the tip of Tokyo Tower visible at far right; to the left is probably Roppongi, Yotsuya, and Akasaka, with northern areas in the foreground. That’s the view we have out our bedroom window.

The next view is straight out to our east, out the dining room windows. Between the tower under construction and the larger apartment tower to the right is the skyline for Ueno, Akihabara, and Kanda. We have seen Disneyland fireworks behind the Akihabara buildings.


Back to the Roppongi area–we noticed that one building seemed to get a blue tint every few seconds. A look with the zoom lens on the camera revealed this (click for larger image):


And just for fun, I glued together three images for an animated GIF showing how the lights came up on that building:

Blue Tower-450

Anybody know what building that is? Roppongi Hills is my guess, but I don’t know for certain.

    People have asked me many times why I love Ikebukuro so much; you pretty much summed it up with these night shots.

    Yep, it’s pretty nice. Probably much nicer in Roppongi and thereabouts, but much more expensive there too, I betcha.
