Tokyo and other Japanese cities are fascinating and beautiful, so futuristic but I see there is history too. You capture many different sides of these cities, I like your style, good job.

I bursted into tears because those are exactly what I expected from Tokyo, the highrises, the trains, the neons, the crowd ...

There are four highly-civilized monster cities on Earth, NYC, Hong Kong, London and Tokyo, all of which have the smell of money and excitement and harmony.

Sorry Paris, your air filled with smell of urine and feces and chaos.

Ah, Tokyo and Kyoto... my two favorite cities in the world. There are cities with better architecture but no other place on Earth can match Tokyo at any other metric. I miss it all the time. I need to get back to Japan one of these days to hit up Osaka and Sapporo.

Osaka is great, Sapporo I really connected with and be sure to head up into the mountains for some onsen.

Don't miss Hiroshima and Nagoya

An explosion of light and concrete, apart from the monkeys of course.

Infinitely fascinating, but Tokyo isn't the prettiest to look at. Personal preference, I guess. Kyoto looks more my speed, and the countryside looks very nice. Thanks for the photos.

So much to look at. Really enjoyed this set - amazing work. All those signs, lights, wires, people... a beautiful jumbled mess.

Really nice pics. 雰囲気と風味をよく捉えました, and that's a lot harder than it might seem.

Goddamn though our telephone and electrical wires can make the place look third-world.

Wow that was incredible! I actually find the overhead wires create an interesting atmosphere - immediately recognizable as Japan.
