Tokyo by Night by 4ColourProgress Tokyo by Night by 4ColourProgress
Tokyo is one of the busiest cities in the world, I remember eating dinner on the top floor of a skyscraper and looking out to the office building opposite. It was filled with Japanese business men or Kaishain in Japanese, we started eating at 6:30 and they continued to work up until 9pm before finally heading home (or off to a Japanese bar to kick back and relax after a long day at work)

This is common practice in Japan, even though their official working hours are only 9-5 most Japanese men get to work an hour early and dont leave till about 8-9pm in the evening. Thatís a 12 hour working day 6 days a week! as most Japanese offices are open on Saturdays too.

Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and I can see why given how hard they all work each and every day.

This shot was taken from our Hotel Room in the Park Hotel in Tokyo. It was the easiest HDR shoot I did on this holiday I just placed the camera on the benches that were under the windows and set of the shutter remote then let Tokyo do the rest.

The park hotel is fantastic.  Before I moved to Japan, we vacationed and stayed there for 7 nights.  Wonderful service from the hotel staff.

Nothing screams 'cityscape' like Tokyo, but the nighttime colours really make this piece enjoyable, both here and as a print. Also, the hints of greenery at ground level offer an nice contrast to the concrete, steel and glass of the skyline. For such an easy shot, this turned out great.

I may never get the chance to get to Tokyo myself, but this helps me feel like I'm there. Thanks for sharing!

Love it. Definitely resizing for wallpaper use.

You're lucky you got to go to Tokyo. That's my dream destination.
