Tokyo Lights

Tokyo comes alive at night.

The brilliant lights and constant motion have a vibrancy that is uniquely Tokyo.

The night sounds different according to neighborhood.

In Ikeburo it is quiet with the rush of people heading home or students disassembling into groups heading into town.

In Shinjuku the Takashimaya Times Square pounds with high tech music and sky high commericals.

In the narrow lanes of Omoide Yokocho,  laughter from relaxed salarymen spill into the alley and mix with the hazy smoke of yakatori grills.

Always, in the distance, overhead  or felt through the ground, the rumble of trains remind you that this is Tokyo.
