Some explanation and speeches about the new Tokyo Site and the Japan Times.
The launch party for the new Tokyo.JapanTimes.co.jp Site was on tonight at Roppongi Hills. Lots of people gathered to hear about the launch and catch up. The Site is focused on photos taken showing the beauty and culture of Tokyo.
The room was quite dark and if you look at the camera detail for a few shots you can see the ISO heading up over 1000 quickly. One shot was around 4000 ISO but the noise quality still held together well.

Prizes to be won for the best tweets. Looks like a copy of the Akihabara Guide by White Rabbit Press. I have a contest coming up soon with this as a prize also.

These beautiful models were at the event taking a few photos. They agreed to my request to capture a few shots. Thank you.
All three were enjoying the photo session. The light was quite low in the room. I wish we could have been in a studio with good lighting.
A very playful moment. It would be nice to meet up again and take some more photos.
The people kept turning up after the event began. This was definitely the place to be.
