Tokyo Station

Did a daytrip up to Tokyo to visit a few friends. The return trip took me through Tokyo Station, so I had a quick look around, before catching the train home. Tokyo Station is an absolutely beautiful mix of modern and Meiji Era design. As I’ve stated before, in my earlier posts about architecture, I […]

The Sea Candle

A.k.a the Shonan Observatory Lighthouse The weather wasn’t so great so the top observation deck was closed, but I was able to visit the lower one and get some pictures. There wasn’t much to do there, but I’m still glad I went. It was an interesting way to spend ten minutes and it got me […]

More Kamata

After work I decided to do a bit more exploring. During work, I can only see a bit from the window in the staff room, or experience a tiny fraction of it when I go out for lunch. At night, everything is lit up beautifully. I found that this extends about three blocks from the […]
