I did make a very brief Tokyo thread a while back, but I have decided to leave that to perish and open a new and more comprehensive thread.
I lived just north of Tokyo for over 4 years, having left and returned to London this year. Leaving was one of the hardest things I have done, and I spend every day wishing I was still there.
One of my greatest regrets is that despite living there for as long as I did, I only got round to buying a new camera and equipment about 4 months before I left. I now consider everything I took prior to that to be sub-standard. I only got in to the city to photograph every so often at weekends, so despite living there for over 4 years, my Tokyo collection is smaller than many of my other threads. I have travelled extensively all across Japan, to every last corner, yet I have almost no worthwhile photographs. This to me is a deep disappointment as I love Japan more than anywhere else. I need to to back and photograph extensively.
Tokyo is a monster. As always, you captured a great mix of people, street scenes and city shots. I only spent a week there and felt I missed so much, after viewing this thread I now know I did. Lot's of shots I don't recognize. Love some of the fashions you captured. Impressive all around.
Wow, these photos are unreal. Bravo! Tokyo is such a dynamic and compelling city, the ultimate metropolis. Impressive skyline density shots, I've always been a fan of Tokyo-style modern mid-rise buildings. Simple, clean, and effective. The Japanese youth are so stylish and fashionable.
Darn, Japanese cities look so futuristic. Tokyo can easily be on another planet. California has a little bit of that going on, but the east coast is like the industrial revolution took a 500-mile long crap and parts of it has been cleaned up, but most of it still stinks. No disrespect
Before one surrenders to the hands of destiny one might consider the power of the human spirit and the force that lies in one's own free will.
