Ginza from High Above – Stuck in Customs

Vertical Signs

When you see all these vertical signs stacked up there in the photo below, you might realize something that took me many trips to figure out! Since each of the buildings is quite tall, there are often different retail stores on each floor. So, each little square that is stacked up is actually a different sign for what is on the next subsequent floor.

This place was a bit tricky to reach!

I love going to Ginza at night (one of those many-neighborhoods in Tokyo I mentioned a few days ago). It’s bright, colorful, and extremely clean. Well, all of Tokyo is clean, but especially this part. As I went down one of the little streets, I saw this high bridge up seven or eight stories. I climbed up through one of the nearby stores and tried to work my way back around to the right spot and eventually found it. When I got up there, I noticed the bridge had that diagonal thatchwork of metal wires embedded in the glass. But I opened up this lens all the way to f/1.4 and was able to see right through it!
