Shop Til You Drop Tokyo Style

Celine and Fendi Tokyo

The thing I really like about this image, and why I think it works, is that the architecture of the shops is so super sharp and minimal juxtaposed with the trees in the foreground. Luckily it was winter when I took the photograph so the trees aren’t in leaf highlighting the effect of the organic vs man made. Actually the time I spent in this westernised part of Tokyo was far less enjoyable than when I felt fully immersed in the more typically Japanese parts of the city but at least I did get to experience as many aspects of the city by making full use of the underground system.
