Capture the ballet of Tokyo traffic
Create exciting compositions of urban landscapes
Explore the inner workings of the urban jungle
Go far beyond the tourist spots and find unique locations
Enter a world of overpasses, junctions, and highways as we explore the infrastructure of the Tokyo metropolis and use our tripods to photograph the urban landscape. We begin at Suitengu-mae station, located on the east side of the city. Here we will find and capture a titanic example of the arteries that snake through the city—a complex road junction looming overhead. We will also explore a few bridges over the Sumida river and photograph ships adorned with lights as though they are aquatic fireflies.
From the quiet riverside, we will take the metro to bustling Akasaka, situated in the heart of the city. This area is home to a complex of highways and overpasses that affords countless opportunities for photographs with unique compositions. We will learn how to best capture these scenes with the use of a tripod as well as what makes an excellent composition when photographing urban infrastructure.
