Yokohama by night

First picture from Japan!

This is the cityscapse of Yokohama, which is the second most populated city in Japan after Tokyo.

I went there around 5pm in order to take some pictures of the sunset.

And I can tell you that this one was tough to take! I tried almost five differents buildings before finding the right spot. And the right spot was in the 26th floor of an office building.

I just chilled there for almost an hour, waiting for the sun to go down, collecting curious gaze from office workers.

The sunset was wonderful and I took many photographs, using the well known sweater trick to avoid reflections on the huge windows.

After almost two hours inside, just when I was packing my stuff, a guard came to me and gently escorted me out.

In the elevator going down I was a bit worry where he would lead me, but the guy just show me the way out saying in a really bad english "you can be here not up".
