Harajuku & Shibuya, Tokyotravel photography in japan

It’s safe to say that Japan was at the very top of my bucket list for places I wanted to visit. But a part of me had always been reluctant; I had such an awesome positive and almost perfect perception of Japan, (based on a life long obsession with JRPG’s, manga and anime) that I wasn’t sure it would meet my geek fuelled standards in reality.

Plus you know, it’s REALLY FAR AWAY.

But this year we decided to live a little; to enjoy a break before a busy summer of weddings. To be inspired and see and experience some new stuff. Any boy did we see some new stuff.

So after 16 hours on planes, and 2 hours in Moscow (it rained) we arrived in Tokyo, where we would be for just 5 short days before heading across the country to Kyoto via Shinkansen, (a freaking bullet train!) for a further two nights. Oh how I wish we could have stayed longer, but 7 nights is what we had, and we absolutely made the most of them in condensed, self planned and frankly overly ambitious itinerary of awesomeness.

This is the first of probably a couple of blog posts, featuring a couple of days in Tokyo and Kyoto. This post kinda covers of first day and a bit in Tokyo, covering our brief time in West and Central Tokyo; mainly Harajuku, Shibuya + Marunouchi.

All images were shot with a Canon 6D, with either a 24mm f1.4 or 50mm 1.4.
