Looking down on Tokyo

Looking down on Tokyo?  Only from the Sky Deck of the Mori Tower at Roppongi Hills, which at 270 metres above sea level, offers some better than ordinary vistas of the megatropolis skyline.  I had some complimentary tickets to the observation deck (thanks Masakatsu!) that were due to expire the next day, so whatever the weather, I was going to be up that observation deck to admire Tokyo from above.

I forgot to bring my mini-tripod, so all the long exposure shots I tried to take blurred, except this 8 second exposure looking towards Tokyo Tower.

This photo is looking towards Shiodome and the north-east.

Towards Shiodome

It’s a strange feeling to be walking around the roof of a skyscraper.  It’s not an angle that’s very common in everyday life.

The last photo for this post is looking straight up Roppongi-dori towards Shibuya and the part of Tokyo where I live.  The tall building at the back, just to the left of centre of the photo, is the Cerulean Tower Hotel, and my apartment is just behind there somewhere.
