    Default Trip to Tokyo!

    I was there on a business trip and did not have a lot of time to go photo-taking

    This leads to the Senso-ji Temple at Asakusa. It's a bustling place during the day time. Alas, I could only go early....


    Temple gate and tower:


    Some of the surrounding scenery. Winter time....


    but some flowers were early:

    A Buddha statue at the compound. There were lots of statues in the area.


    Subway and trains are probably the fastest and most popular form of transport. The trains are fast:


    so are the people!!!

    Visited some places during the night too. Here's a pic taken at Akihabara, nicknamed the electrical town for its many electrical and computer gadgets. You could find lots of cameras there. There're lots of duty shops/floors around where you would be exempted from the 5% tax.



    I also visited the Yodobashi Camera Store at Shinjuku. There're lots of cameras and accesories on sale! See the number of people! You won't think that Japan's economy is in a bad shape.


    Here're some digital SLRs there....


    I visited the Tokyo Tower after the shops close.... You could go up to a observatory deck to have a panoramic view of Tokyo.
