Tokyo Cityscape With Mount Fuji - Japan

Tokyo Cityscape - As seen from Shinjuku - Japan


Mount Fuji


coils across the landscape;


a frozen, sleeping dragon


dreaming the


day into night


as the sun descends


like a fiery ember


on the exhaled breath


of the slumbering giant


and dusk


extinguishes the sunset.


Shadows dance


across Tokyo


when the sun slips away


for the night


as the present


pulses into the future;


arteries pumping


and flowing through


city streets like


sanguine lava.


And as the


city’s synaptic




reach up to


the night sky,


Tokyo dreams


itself into






Taken last week in Tokyo.



Big thanks to the hotel from Lost in Translation (the Park Hyatt Tokyo in Shinjuku) who generously hosted me as a guest in Japan for the week and from whose windows I was able to take these photographs (more about that in an upcoming video - most of these were taken from my room).


And a huge thanks to Sony for taking me to Tokyo as their guest and for one of the best travel experiences of my life so far.


I talk a bit about it in two recent videos I put up over on my YouTube channel if you are curious: How I Got Started in Photography and Photography with One Eye?
