Nice contrasts of the dark shadows over the bridge to the sunlight on these apartments. Also, the feel of a coolish winter day in the shade with the cyclist and children walking
It was a great sunny day on “Sunday” with blue skies in Tokyo and I decided to take a walk from Shinagawa Station towards Tennozu Isle (where the monorail runs to Haneda Airport).
A look across the water to the T.Y Brewery and restaurant.
Bright pink bus taking people to the Aeon Jusco store at Shinagawa Seaside.
You can see the Rakusuibashi with its lime green color as well as an interesting mix of buildings in the background. Some old, some new, some apartments, some business.
Very colorful manhole cover courtesy of the fire department.
Looking South towards Haneda and Yokohama.
T.Y. Harbor Brewery. A great place to eat and drink.
The equipment on the barge had some really bright colors. The contrast of the rusty looking barge was great.
Buildings crowded in on either side of the water.
These steel pipes with concrete wheels were in the water. I am not sure what they were used for, but they shone well in the sunlight when I took this photo. The water took on a very deep blue color and the reflection of the building in the top right was fantastic.
Another look at the steel and concrete objects in the water. I couldn't lean far enough over the rail to get the exact view I wanted. Kept thinking I was going to drop the camera in the water.
Lots of people out walking their dogs in this area. If you have a dog in Japan you can expect complete strangers to come up and be very friendly talking to you. It is probably one of the best ways to get to know people in your neighborhood. A great conversation opener.
Liked these wavy lines in the park next to the water. Very warm and inviting.
Some colorful boats tethered to the barge, ready for some time of work in the area.
Colorful outfits on these dogs helping them to keep warm.
The Fureai Bridge, about to cross over from Shinagawa to Tennozu Isle.
The baseball game just about to finish up, both teams say thanks to the coaches and umpires.
North, South, East or West.
The gates open here to let boats in, but can be shut in case of flood or tidal warnings to protect the inner waterways of Tokyo.
Not a big fan of this architecture at the Shinagawa City Towers building. This complex is quite new, but is far from the station.
Bird of Shinagawa-ku, Yurikamome.
The Fureai Bridge. We have now crossed to Tennozu Isle.
The address post outside the T.Y. Brewery. In Japan addresses normally are stated in blocks of land. This address is in the Shinagawa Ward (Shinagawa-ku) and is East Shinagawa, 2-chome, 1-ban
Restaurant and Floating Bar at the T.Y. Brewery, Tennozu Isle.
Looking back towards Shinagawa from Tennozu Isle, you can see the main SONY building.
Feel free to use the “comments on top of the photos” feature if you want to highlight something for others to see. Any comments you make on the photo itself will also appear in the comments section at the bottom of the page. I will also make a series of notes on top of the photo, but they will just be viewable on the photo, not in the comments section.
Through the Tokyo Photo Walk series I plan to venture out and discover new areas of town in 2010. I am going to call the recent walk through Gotenyama, the first in the series and this one is then number 2. By the end of the year hopefully we can have a number of interesting walks together to look back on.
Rather than picking the well known famous spots, I am planning to just take photos of the places I go to and show you what I am viewing. Sometimes that might mean you get to see a landmark like Tokyo Tower or Ginza main street, other times it might be the back roads of town somewhere. Hope you enjoy ^_^.
What is your favorite Tokyo walking area?
