inner west Tokyo

View towards Koenji from hallway makes me wonder where are the trees?

高円寺の方角の景色はきれいだけど、木が見えませんね。

The opposite side of the apartment from our balcony is a hallway with an enormous view of inner west Tokyo, including the Chuo and Sobu line trains. There’s a serious shortage of trees and open space.

Under dramatic sky, inner west Tokyo looks like a movie set

日没の劇的な空の下に、中野と新宿が映画のセットみたいです。ミニチュアというカメラの設定を使いました。

This “miniature” setting on the digital camera makes the Nakano skyline seem less real. This wild jumble of buildings leads all the way to Tokyo city hall and the Opera City tower.
