Above Tokyo

NTT Docomo Building in Shibuya is just peeking out from the clouds.

We’ve spent the last two Thanksgiving weekends in Tokyo visiting our friends Dave and his wife Mayumi. Both of those times we stayed in Shinjuku with a westward facing hotel room with views of Shinjuku Central Park, the Park Hyatt, Tokyo Opera City Tower and Mt. Fuji. Regardless of the time of day I found myself (and camera) glued to the window.

The sun is setting just to the  left of Mt. Fuji.
