Asakusa, Tokyo
Upstairs, Downstairs…a scene from Asakusa, Tokyo.

November 2019 – It was such a great feeling to be back in Japan, having last set foot there around ten years ago. Back then, I had just started on a new chapter in photography with the purchase of my first DSLR (a Canon 5D Mark II), and can still remember being overwhelmed by the sights across the country, as well as the thrill of photographing these places.

One of the things I really wanted to do on this particular visit was to try and capture some candid night scenes around Tokyo. For this mission, the Fuji X-T2 fitted with the Fujinon 23mm lens was the weapon of choice – though we did have our Canon with us, we were finding that we were using it less and less on our personal trips.

The images featured on this post are a slight departure from my usual editing process. Personally, I felt that the style chosen here works well with these scenes, taken in the districts of Ginza, Ryogoku and Asakusa.

More photos from Japan to come!
