More Tips on Tokyo from Travelers
- Tokyo is my all time favourite city to visit. As much as I’m biased towards my hometown London, Tokyo will always have a place in my heart. It’s truly a city that never sleeps and experience you cannot get elsewhere. This is a view from one of the observatories in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, a free viewing floor that gives you unparalled views of the city.

- Was walking a evening in Tokyo and saw this street filled with lights which reflected on the taxi’s. I stopped and made this photo quickly with my phone (s7 edge). Didn’t expect it would come out this great, especially considered it was taken with a phone at night
- Everytime when I’m going back to Mt. Fuji it feels like it’s the first time visiting. This time was special because my daughter is already 2 years old and she seems to understand more. When someone asks me what to visit around Tokyo, I always recommend Fuji-San. It’s easy to reach and impossible not to love.

An obliga-torii photo of Fushimi Inari’s famous gates in Kyoto, Japan. The day I was at the shrine it was absolutely packed. To get this photo I only had one shot - I literally sprinted as fast as I could in front of a huge group of people on the path so I could get at least one photo without anyone in the frame. Luckily it paid off - I ended up with this picture of the afternoon light trickling through the vermilion torii.
Fushimi Inari Taisha
- Fushimi Inari Shrine (伏見稲荷大社, Fushimi Inari Taisha) is an important Shinto shrine in southern Kyoto. It is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, which straddle a network of trails behind its main buildings. The trails lead into the wooded forest of the sacred Mount Inari, which stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds.
- Back in December of 2013, I found myself in Kyoto, and one stop I had to see was the famous Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-ji or officially, Rokuon-ji). Its a popular Zen Buddhist temple which is visited by many all year round. I can say with certainty that it did not disappoint.
- Early morning while visiting Niseko, Hokkaido, Japan, I awoke to an early winter snow storm. The sky was dense with fluffy clumps of snow, gently felling from above, accumulating quickly across the region as people slept in their mountain homes. I grab my camera and hopped into my car, knowing that I would be the first on the road to witness a snow fall I haven’t experienced for more than a decade.
