Fuji air

Really gotta get back into the habit of blogging more. Have a massive backlog of stuff that needs to be posted.

Here are some photos of Mount Fuji taken from a plane (flight back to Tokyo from Indonesia).

Sky views: Mori Tower

Because the Sky Aquarium was on level 52 of the Mori Tower and because the ticket included entry to the Mori Tower observatory/sky view – what better opportunity to go check out the view. Normally, it costs 1500yen alone just to go up there! Great views to be had from level 52. If you time it to go in the late afternoon, you get the daytime view and then watch it get dark so you see the night light view as well. The sky was clear on Monday night so we got decent views.

Tokyo is such a metropolis. So dense. So many buildings. So big. So wide.

The space up at the top of the Mori Tower is spacious and wide, but plenty of people around, especially on a public holiday.

There was also a small clownfish fish tank – I think this was just a temporary installment for the Sky Aquarium.

Slowly got darker. It was fun to see all the lights being gradually switched on…

There’s a cafe/bar up there that sells a great selection of teas, and gelato! Highly recommend the gelato! 2 scoops for 500yen! The hazelnut gelato was delightful!

Sit and enjoy whilst soaking up the view.

Night views of Tokyo Tower. It really stands out of a night time when it’s all lit up. I heard that they’re tearing this down in a few years…

It’s hard to take photos of lights at night off of reflecting glass. I tried to do a reflection thing with the tower and the glass window with a random couple. It kinda turned out not too bad. The couple were actually really good models for this shot.

This week has actually been a short week, dubbed a mini ‘Silver week”. Monday was a public holiday, as will be tomorrow (Friday). So only three days of work this week. I can live with that. Two back-to-back long weekends – yay, marked with a typhoon in the middle. Will be going away tomorrow for the long weekend, pending any disruptions/national disasters.
