T o k y o 東京

Following on from my brief stopover in Dubai I returned to Tokyo 2.5 years after leaving it last. Having lived just outside Tokyo for 4 years from 2007-2011, (and leaving just after the Earthquake and Tsunami), it was an emotional experience for me to return for the first time. In many ways it was as if I had never left, not a lot had changed and the city is as mindblowingly amazing as ever.

Thanks for this whirlwind tour of perhaps the greatest of all cities. I can't wait to get back there again.

Your display of Tokyos urban mojo is quite simply delightful. Cheers and keep clicking while you are there.

Wow, that was a rush. Beautiful pics of a dazzling city. I'll have to visit this thread again after I catch my breath.

So many great shots, but this one stopped me in my tracks (not even sure why):



Thanks Xander.
