Looking Towards Fuji
Took this shot from the Fuji TV building, Fuji is there somewhere you just have to look very hard!
At Narita Airport
This is the actual plane that brought me to Japan. An Airbus A380 the word’s biggest airliner. Nicknamed the dreamliner not sure why as I couldn’t fall asleep.
The first time I have ever been scared by a monorail. Not only is the monorail entirely automated but it’s not fixed to a track, instead it has tyres just like a car does, the computer steers it!
Tokyo Sky Tree
Look for a very tall slender outline on the horizon, that’s Tokyo Sky Tree. At the bottom of the picture you can see a small beach that gets quite crowded during summer.
Why it’s called Rainbow bridge I’m not sure but at night they it lights up like a rainbow. I rode the monorail across the bridge but it’s also possible to drive a car across it or ever walk across it!
Odaiba Statue of Liberty
Can you spot it? Not quite as big as the real thing but if you look to the right of this photo you should be able to see it. It’s an unusual sight to see in Japan.
One of the many highways in Japan. The traffic in Tokyo is often very heavy despite the large number of people that use public transport.
Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine
This shrine is located in Kamakura and is the location of a famous ginko tree that’s over 1000 years old! Unfortunately the huge tree fell over during March 2010. Everyone thought it was dead but it’s actually started growing new shoots.
