You asked, I listened.  

This is one of the oldest sections of Tokyo called Nihonbashi.  This area is adjacent to Tokyo Station and the financial district.

Re: To Cyuill

It must be rare to see the streets of Tokyo so quiet. Nice shots.

In general, yes; it is rare to see Tokyo streets so bare.  But like any metropolis if you seek out these pockets and patches of relative emptiness, you can find them, even in the most crowded of places.  Thanks for looking and commenting!

Interesting to see these - so different from what one expects in Tokyo.

Rich,

As you are well aware of Tokyo like any other major urban area has many faces and temperaments.  One only need to discover them.   Please visit and see for yourself.

The second one is a great mix of the ancient and the modern, the people going about their daily business adds something else, great shot!

Re: To Cyuill

Thanks for sharing these pictures of Tokyo. It's always fascinating for me to see these images, coming from a part of the world so different from mine, and so similar, at the same time.

You made an excellent use of the 18.5: the first seems to have been shot with a tele lens, while the second looks like it was taken with a wide angle.

Gary, thanks a lot!  Yes, the people going about their daily business, as you put it, while the ancients watch over them like guardian angels.

You are right about being able to learn about other cultures in other parts of the world through images that we share with each other--it's really wonderful.

Thanks Andre!  I made good use of my legs since I didn't have the all-in-one 6.7 - 300mm N1 dream lens.  LOL
