| p.1 #2 · What lens to bring to Tokyo? And a picture from my home town. |
What are you interested in shooting? Tokyo is a mix of modern and traditional architecture so you can find a wide range of subjects. Along with modern dress, if you have any sort of festival or special event, traditional costuming is likely to be out there for shooting. As to getting away from Tokyo, here are a couple of areas to do some searching on. Nikko - for traditional architecture as well as mountain scenery, Kamakura, an ancient capitol with a myriad of shrines, temples, one of the Great Buddhas, etc. Not sure if it's still there, there used to be a narrow gauge trolley line which ran from the main Kamakura station out to the beach resort area, again, access to a number of traditional architectural sites. Fuji-Hakone - scenic area with a variety of lakes, Mount Fuji, numerous museums, scenic rail lines, aerial trams, etc.
Hong Kong, one of my favorite areas for scenics was shooting from the area around the top of the Peak tram around sunset. One could shoot back over the metropolitan harbor and out over the sea in the other direction.
