As promised, today is going to be photo bonanza day. I'm going to post each different picture as a separate entry so I can accompany it with my extremely insightful commentary. *g*
To begin with, here is a picture from the Tokyo Millenario, a "seasonal illumination" in central Tokyo, near Tokyo Station.
These archways were set all down the street - you can see the edges of five different arches on the right hand side in this picture. In a word, it was stunning. What wasn't stunning was the crowd. I've never been so crushed! In the end we decided to cut our losses and look from afar but even that didn't lessen the impact.
