On top of Tokyu Plaza shopping center, at the crossroads of Omotesando and Meiji Dori, is a rooftop garden from where I took this shot of Tokyo looking south towards Shibuya.

Walking from Harajuku, through Yoyogi Park towards Meiji Jingu Shrine, we passed this display of huge kazaridaru – barrels of sake – donated by brewers across Japan to honour the gods and deities of the Shrine. Although the display is mainly decorative, the sake is used for ceremonial purposes on occasion.
I’m finally starting to process the shortlist of the photographs I took during our trip to Japan in November last year. From over 1500 photographs taken, more than 1110 passed muster and were processed on my Surface Pro 4 while away in Barcelona during January-March 2017 using Lightroom CC. Of those, between 30 and 40 were picked for the “Shortlist” – a selection of photos to commit to print for used at home and for display at a small show in a local cafe. It is that handful which I am finally (re-)processing for realsies! And this is the first of those photographs, a shrine on Omotesando – the Regent Street of Tokyo City – taken early evening, handheld and unlit.
