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

 

skyscrapers

 

reach up to

 

the night sky,

 

Tokyo dreams

 

itself into

 

existence.

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?
