  1. wow…what type of camera do you possess… I wish I can write with the clarity you photo’s have… eye popping…

  2. Stunning lights and color, Jane. You’ve captured it beautifully. It looks like you’ve had a great time there. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. absolutely gorgeous Jane…..LOVE “come in”๐Ÿ˜œ

  4. This title could also be called “Tokyo Lights”
    and the hood one and going home are my favs –
    the people always time stamp the shot and I found myself going back to see people and structures after enjoying the lights and night take.

  5. Welcome back, Jane – assuming you ARE back! It sure looks like you enjoyed Tokyo – I like all the clean, colorful, hard-edged shapes in these street scenes. The reflection in the car hood is fantastic! I’m drinking in the scene of “Come In” but I suspect “Night Bite” and “Night Alley” are more typical Tokyo views. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Hi Lynn, Almost back….in Hawaii with our kids and granddaughter. A great way to break up the long flight from Japan. The Ginza neighborhood is a shock of neon and a few blocks away, you can find those wonderful traditional alleys with these small restaurants. Glad you enjoyed…I have a few hundred more…haha! Thanks, as always.

  6. Would love to visit Japan. I particularly liked โ€œCome Inโ€ and โ€œGoing Homeโ€, Jane.

  7. Wonderful captures of the world at night Jane. Especially liked Crossing.

  8. All alone is really on the top of my list. It seems to be such a contradiction when I think of Tokyo. Plus it is really excellent image.

  9. Such a wonderful city youโ€™ve captured it beautifully Jane ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  10. I love the colour and lines in these wonderful shots!

  11. These are beautiful images, the lovely tones would make for some lovely large prints.

  12. Spinning, indeed! ๐Ÿ˜€ but lots of nice color! Your images manage to catch some of that frantic energy that sends me into tail spins. But that’s just me… plenty of folks seem to thrive on it.

  13. Really cool series! I like both the colour and the monochrome pictures, they are all just stunning cityscapes.

    • Thanks so much, Ulf. I’m glad you like the monochromes, too. I think the black and whites of the neon are exciting. Will be working on some more. Happy you enjoyed the night scenes of this amazing city!

  14. A very colorful presentation of Tokyo street life. A lot of neon. I was there only once, passing through in my previous life in naval service. When you get off the main thoroughfares onto the side streets, that is where you’ll find pre-war Japan. First, it’ll be like the small eateries (“Night Bite”) and little shops (“Come In”). Further along, it becomes a veritable warren of narrow streets and alleyways. But, there is always a place to eat and/or drink or to shop. While more Japanese is spoken away from the main Ginza, they know enough English to converse.

    Hope you enjoyed your time Tokyo. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, David. I love the memories you’ve shared. The alleyways away from the glitz are fantastic and the food is marvelous. The “old and new” contrasts are most intriguing. Glad these brought back memories of your time there. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I can just feel the hustle-bustle of this busy city. Lights and angles, well captured!

  16. Wow absolutely incredible Jane!

  17. Fabulous shots Jane! You really captured Tokyo at night – what an insane kaleidoscope it is. I’d love to go back.
    Alison

  18. Fantastic, Japan is on our bucket list…..although it’s a bit of a hike from the UK

  19. After viewing these photos, I believe we could re-name Tokyo, “The City of Light”. Absolutely gorgeous work, Jane.
    ฮฉ

  20. Hiiii I’m a beginner in photography! Do you mind sharing your tips on how to take lovely picsss:(

  21. Looks like a city that never sleeps…..

  22. Hi jane wonderful night pictures from tokio, i especially like the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th.
    regards robert

  23. Wow! Colorful and linear for modern Tokyo! The architecture is such a contrasting backdrop for your subjects!! I love the photos. Suzieโฃ๏ธ

  24. These images show a great sensitivity to the light , lines and people of Tokyo. Thanks for the great trip I took with your px.

  25. Very nice pics i also love the Ginza whirl ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. Wondered where you had been. Looks like you are having an interesting time

  27. WOW these images are great Jane ๐Ÿ™‚ Tokyo looks like its lit up like Times Square.

  28. These pics made me feel like I was right there ! Terrific!

  29. I noticed that a few signs are in English, presumably for the benefit of tourists. It’s strange to be in a place where very little is legible to us, and given the kinds of scripts used in Japanese, we can’t even look words up in a dictionary.

    • Hi Steve, Many stores are worldwide chains and are in English but many restaurants and signs are Japanese only. We had some adventures trying to find things. Anyone we asked was more than happy to go out of their way to help. I had some moments, like in SE Asia and China, where nothing was legible or familiar. Thatโ€™s what makes travel so exciting!

  30. It’s interesting how different large cities are from each other. Philadelphia looks and feels different from New York which looks and feels different from Boston. Looking at your night images I think I would find Tokyo to be similarly “different”.

    • So true, Khรผrt. The bright lights remind me of NY but the feel is very different. And, to say it’s cleaner is an understatement. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. Glad you enjoyed this one.

  31. you captured it well, my friend! such a fascinating mix of old, new, modern, traditional and always bright, bright, bright! well done

  32. Beautiful images, as always. Love the cinematic Tokyo mood.

  33. Very interesting post. Tokyo looks intense. Love seeing the world through your lens.

Love to hear what you think...
