Shibuya Crossing -  There's a particularly hypnotic view over the crossing from the Starbucks on the 2nd floor of the Q-front building across the street (though it’s hard to get a seat). #shibuya #shibuyabynight #shibuyacrossing #hachiko #igjapan #crowd #japan #Asia #VisitJapan  #JapanRevealed #LP #PassionPassport #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday  #nikon #NikonItalia #NatGeo

Shibuya Crossing -  The intersection is most impressive after dark on a Friday or Saturday night, when the crowds pouring out of the station are dressed in their finest and neon-lit by the signs above. The rhythms here are, however, tied to the train station and after the last train pulls out for the night, the intersection becomes eerily quiet.  #japan #Asia #VisitJapan  #JapanRevealed #LP #PassionPassport #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday  #nikon #NikonItalia #NatGeo

Shibuya Crossing -  Rumoured to be the busiest intersection in the world (and definitely in Japan), Shibuya Crossing, is like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every pulsing light change. Perhaps nowhere else says ‘Welcome to Tokyo’ better than this. Hundreds of people – and at peak times said to be over 1000 people – cross at a time, coming from all directions at once yet still managing to dodge each other with a practised, nonchalant agility.  #shibuya #shibuyabynight #shibuyacrossing #hachiko #igjapan #crowd #japan #Asia #VisitJapan  #JapanRevealed #LP #PassionPassport #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday  #nikon #NikonItalia #NatGeo

- Fragments of mirrors that multiply the vision of the visitors that enter or leave from Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku in Tokyo. Hiroshi Nakamura designed the entire structure of the mall where the mirrored wall is only a tiny part positioned at the entrance.  #people #architecture #tokyo #tokyiuplaza #Omotesando #japan  #VisitJapanAU  #JapanRevealed #Asia #LP #PassionPassport #travellerau #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday

temizuya -  The temizuya at the entrance to the shrine’s innermost grounds is a place to purify the body before entering. Here worshippers wash their hands and mouth with the cool, flowing water in an act of ritual purification.

Continuing along the sandō, we come to the temizuya, situated just in front of the last torii gate, where you will find clear, running water. Before proceeding to the haiden, worshippers stop here to wash their hands and rinse their mouths in an act of ritual purification. This is a simplified, abbreviated version of misogi, the full-body purification rite still practiced by devotees.  #Buddhism #Cultures #EastAsianCulture #Praying #Religion #Shrine #Spirituality #Temples #tokyo #japan #Asia #VisitJapan  #JapanRevealed #LP #PassionPassport #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday  #nikon #NikonItalia #NatGeo

Tocho -  The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (東京都庁, Tōkyō Tochō) in Shinjuku is often visited by tourists for its free observation decks which provide good panoramic views of Tokyo and beyond. The 243 meter tall building has two towers, and each houses an observatory at a height of 202 meters. It had been the tallest building in Tokyo until it was overtaken by the Midtown Tower in 2007.
Tokyo’s seat of power, designed by Tange Kenzō, looms large and looks some- what like a pixelated cathedral.
With favorable weather conditions, famous landmarks such as Mount Fuji, the Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Tower, Meiji Shrine and the Tokyo Dome can be seen from the observatories. Each observatory has a cafe and a souvenir shop. The North Observatory remains open later at night, making it a popular spot to catch night views of the city.  #Architecture #Building  #Structure #BusinessCity #Futuristic  #Reflection #Skyscrape #Tourism #UrbanScene  #Tokyo #Japan  #VisitJapan #JapanRevealed #Asia #LP #PassionPassport #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday #nikon #NikonItalia #NatGeo

- The cherry blossom season is relatively short. Full bloom (mankai) is usually reached within about one week after the opening of the first blossoms (kaika). Another week later, the blooming peak is over and the blossoms are falling from the trees. Strong wind and rain can cut the blooming season even shorter.  #Trees #Nature  #Outdoors #Street #Park #spring #Footpath, #Leaf #Landscape #Sunlight #japan  #VisitJapanAU  #JapanRevealed #Asia #LP #PassionPassport #travellerau #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday

Hanami -  The hanami is a ritual with ancient roots that brings contemplative and joyful message. The contemplation of the beauty of simplicity, the force of nature that rises in spite of every winter, reflection on the transience, the exaltation of spring joy. There are many different meanings hanami. An interesting lesson of nature that Japan teaches us to rejoice in the world.. #tokyo #sakura #cherryblossom #season #park #outdoor #pink #flower #nature #japan  #VisitJapanAU  #JapanRevealed #Asia #LP #PassionPassport #travellerau #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday

Sakura is the Japanese word for cherry blossom, which blooms across Japan between March and May each year.  The season is eagerly anticipated during the winter months, and while the blossom is out crowds of people flock to parks, gardens and riversides to eat, drink, and be merry underneath the flowers . #tokyo  #sakura #cherryblossom #season #park #outdoor #pink #flower #nature #japan  #VisitJapanAU  #JapanRevealed #Asia #LP #PassionPassport #travellerau #TLPicks #traveldeeper  #Travel  #travelgram  #instatravel  #travelphotography  #travelwrite #vacation #view #wanderlust #Instadaily  #bestoftheday
