Tokyo is one of the busiest cities in the world, I remember eating dinner on the top floor of a skyscraper and looking out to the office building opposite. It was filled with Japanese business men or Kaishain in Japanese, we started eating at 6:30 and they continued to work up until 9pm before finally heading home (or off to a Japanese bar to kick back and relax after a long day at work) This is common practice in Japan, even though their official working hours are only 9-5 most Japanese men get to work an hour early and dont leave till about 8-9pm in the evening. That’s a 12 hour working day 6 days a week! as most Japanese offices are open on Saturdays too. Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and I can see why given how much pressure they are under to perform. This shot was taken from our Hotel Room in the Park Hotel in Tokyo. It was the easiest HDR shoot I did on this holiday I just placed the camera on the benches that were under the windows and set of the shutter remote then let Tokyo do the rest.
