Here’s another photo I took strolling around at night in Asakusa in Tokyo. In these little alleys, there is an air of intimate and cosy homeliness, I guess this is thanks to the locals. On a micro scale, these alleys had a really neighbourly and friendly vibe, this is completely contrary to what I thought it would be like – another cold and impersonal metropolis. Asakusa is one of the oldest parts of Tokyo and yet not far from here the Tokyo SkyTree stands sentry like a gigantic glittering UFO. The whole of Tokyo calls out for attention and it’s virtually impossible to absorb it all in one holiday….we will be back.
