Like Japan’s most well-known force of nature, Mount Fuji, new buildings can inspire awe; they can also inspire “awe-shucks!” I’ve discovered that, just as with Fuji, the beauty of the thing is in the eye of the beholder–or the cameraperson, to be precise. Let’s check out how some serious photogs take on Tokyo Sky Tree–and manage to make it beautiful.
Shot here at sunset, Sky tree looks like a ship about to rocket toward the unknown…
Contrasted with this pic, where a half-finished tower looms over an apocalyptic cityscape!
Here, Sky Tree is just one of many interesting buildings in the lineup, all twinkling in the night…
…While here, it’s the crown jewel of the skyline!
My eyes are drawn to the fence here…and oh, there’s Sky Tree!
Here’s another one where, if you focus on the giant pickle to the left, you might just miss Sky Tree off in the distance
Sky Tree framed by cherry blossoms. These get me every time!
Filmed close up, so we can get an idea of the awesome detail that went into it!
Seen from many perspectives, Sky Tree certainly gets my vote as a welcome addition to the Tokyo skyline. Sky Tree is great from the outside, but imagine the view from the top! Not to mention the food. I hope this pictures encourage you to visit Sky Tree yourself the next time you’re in Tokyo–please snap a few pics of your own!
