Skytree Skyline



Can you see Mount Fuji in the distance?  This was taken just after sunset from the Tembo Deck of the Tokyo Skytree.  From the Tembo Deck, one can take in a 360-degree view of Tokyo at a height of 350 meters/1148 feet.  It is located on the 350th floor.

My next post will not be photography.  During the holiday season I took a break from writing, but now that 2016 is truly in full swing, it is time to dust off my pencils!

Silent Silhouette

Lake Suwa_end

This is a shot of Nagano Prefecture’s Lake Suwa just after sunset.  The statue is of Princess Yaegaki, who is a key figure in Honcho Nijushiko.  Honcho Nijushiko is a five-act drama that was first performed in 1766.  At the end of the story, Yaegaki walks across a frozen Lake Suwa to save her lover from a violent death.
