Tokyo: a pleasant surprise

A surprise. Not just the city, the people, the feeling, but the trip itself.

My time in Tokyo was great, and I’d like to share with you at least part of  the beauty I saw.

However, since I took more than 1000 pictures, it wasn’t easy to select just a few for this post. Hopefully it will work.
I leave it to them now, hoping they can deliver to you at least part of the beautiful feeling this city left me with.

The city

A big thanks to all my Japanese friends who made this vacation so spacial.
I’ll be back!

    1000 pictures? Welcome to the digital age! If you shot that many photos, there must have been at least 1000 beautiful sights. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Welcome home!

    Elena, your photos are fantastic, and really capture the city. I’ve tried to take a picture of the toilets with no success; aren’t they the best?

    It’s too bad that we did not discover one another until after your trip. I could have given you a locals tour of Tokyo. But it looks like you saw many of the highlights, including the Giant Buddha in Kamakura. Kamakura is one of my favorite cities here. Hope you had a great time!

    Hi Elena! Thanks for the goodreads friendship. I’ve been to Tokyo as well (my sister used to live there)…what a fascinating city! We also visited Kyoto and Hakone.
