Japan Trip 01_ Tokyo

Having just returned from a trip to Japan, it's time to upload some images ... it's hard to make a small selection from over 1500 images but I hope these represent a 'taster' of what we saw...
Mind you, nothing could really prepare me for the huge crowds and the difficulties of trying to make some decent images while on a fast paced tour with such little dedicated 'photographic' time (none, actually).. so all these images were literally taken 'on the run' and at times I was sorely tested...
The day after we arrived, we were up very early and at the Tokyo Fish Market (Tsukiji Fish Market), so it was all a bit of a head spin ... we also looked at the Shinto shrine in the market area ...




















Next stop was the Akihabara (Electric Town) area ...










Edo Tokyo Museum ...








Tokyo Sumo Wrestling Museum...




Asakusa Kannon Temple (Shinto Shrine) ...

















Nakamise Shopping Area ...


















Hama-rikuyu Gardens (The Family garden of the Tokugawa Shogun) ...
