Tokyo Tower’s first observation decks at dusk. The lights have just been turned on, and the sky turns pink. In the distance on this beautiful day you may see the silhouettes of those enjoying the view on the city from the roof of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. This is one of the best spots in town, although a bit pricy. But when the roof is opened (e.g when it’s not rainy and / or windy), you’ll really enjoy the moment. You may notice that the picture isn’t that crisp here and there… this does not come from the camera, but it is indeed a common problem on most observation floors in Japan. Windows are usually covered with some protective films, that are terrific for cameras and degrade quickly with time. Taking pictures in these conditions is really challenging. This one was taken from the World Trade Center in Hamamatsucho, a wonderful place but with the worst windows ever. And now another building has been erected right in front of it, blocking most of the view on the left of the Tokyo Tower, unfortunately.
