hkskyline's 2016 in Tokyo

I returned to Tokyo for a quick weekend hop to meet up with a good friend before continuing my journey to the other side of the world. Otherwise, I didn't have much on my agenda, returning to places I have been thanks to better weather, and looking for a vantage point to see the city's changes over time.





City Hall in Shinjuku offers a free observation deck with very decent views. It appears both towers were open today.







The crisp winter air meant I could see all the way to Mount Fuji.







Love the fake food so you can expect what you have blindly ordered.







Shinjuku offers tremendous shopping opportunities, but I was only looking for 2 specific things today. 1 was a cheap 100 yen store.























Even the smoking area is classically designed!

Tokyo was amazing, Tokyo was amazing, Tokyo was amazing back in 90s.

It is just mundane nowadays.

I spent Christmas 2015 in Germany exploring the Christmas markets. So I was surprised Tokyo had their own European-style Christmas markets as well. This one looked authentic but the things they sold looked more like a North American flea market instead.

I headed up Yebisu Garden Place once again, only to find there was actually a 2nd floor with even better views than what I found on my first visit. They seemed to have renovated a section specifically for visitors to enjoy the views.











Shinjuku





The view is quite broad. To the right of Shinjuku is Tokyo Tower.
