beautiful things don´t ask for attention.
im shure rio is a pretty epic city, new york indeed is… but what the hell is this tokyo like?!? the mother all of those?
if i would try to describe it, i would compare it with a motion picture but with stills. the movie theme would be a thriller. every second is so exciting. you can feel the boiling blood rushing in your ears. it´s gorgeous and breath taking.
one of the most exciting things in tokyo for me, are the layering of the different architectures behind each other which is never ending. it starts with a small little bakery and ends with an insane 270m tall skyscraper, as long as you can see the horizon. the mix is so funny that tokyo becomes one of the funniest city surfaces in the world. the buildings are that high, that the sun is coming in a really steep angle along the day and throws strong shadows in the house canyons. i have a lot of neck pain from looking up all day long.
from tokyo with love, impressions below
