Scenes around Tokyo


Tokyo has no shortage of great visuals to keep one busy during a visit. Pick any neighborhood and just wander around a bit and you’ll come across awesome sights. With nothing particularly special on my itinerary this past visit it was rather easy to roam the streets, looking for scenes that caught my eye. Here are some of the results.

  1. Were you here before the typhoon?
    Starting Wednesday the temperatures cooled off quite a bit, and it has been almost Autumn like here.

    1. I was there the 9th-10th of July. It was incredibly hot. On par with Bangkok this week.

      Glad to hear that things have cooled off; Tokyo isn’t really built to handle such heat.

  2. Seth,
    did you get anything when you were at Roppongi Hills?
    next time you are in Tokyo, there are closet apartments that costs a little more that you can try…
