Sanya Photowalk

sanya photowalk excerpt

Our photowalk took us through what used to be the old Sanya neighborhood in Tokyo, over towards Asakusa and the location of the new Tokyo Sky Tree. It’s about as urban as things get in Tokyo, with lots of wonderfully textured concrete, steel, power cables, shuttered buildings and what not, and the fact that we could see the Sky Tree poking up intermittently through the clouds and gaps in the stormy skyline (as if some foreboding Tower of Mordor or whatever) (I may have screwed that name up, but I’m talking about the bad guy’s tower in The Lord of the Rings) only made it that much better.
