I will readily admit; I live in a beautiful location here in Okinawa. Gorgeous ocean views, sunsets that are the equivalent of anywhere in the world, and if willing, incredible underwater scenery, BUT I still miss Tokyo. I've been here for just over a year and a half and I've created some wonderful photos, but when the weather is not cooperating, I find it hard to find interesting subjects. That is rarely a problem in Tokyo; a short train ride will take you into vast photographic opportunities at just about every turn. I often thought of Tokyo proper as my Jungle. Concrete vs. rain forest, but challenging nonetheless. One wrong turn and you could be hopelessly lost for a long time trying to get yourself reoriented to where you want to go. Photographically, it's a different style vs. the incredible landscapes available here, but one could spend endless hours just wondering and taking interesting and unique photos.
This photo was from a trip to Tokyo last year just before Thanksgiving. I had a day too myself and started walking around 10am from near Hiroo and came back to the hotel around 8pm with my turn around point in Shibuya. I was walking the entire time with a 1 hour break at the famous Shibuya Starbucks. This is one of many hundreds of photos I took that day. An interesting shop built right on the sidewalk to repair/maintain bicycles as you wait.
