Going forward with Part 2 :D

Pictures below were made on monday 11 october, it was a national holiday in japan (Sports day).

first went to the emperor palace, after that went to St Luke's Garden Towers and then with the unmanned subway/metro over Rainbow Bridge toward Odaiba island. After my visit to that area I walked back towards tokyo over the Rainbow Bridge during sunset. :Cool:

With the Ginzaline towards Marunouchi, got off @ Mitsukoshimae, so I could walk trough several areas before getting at the palace.

56.

Old and new together, tower was built in 2005 and itches the 200m mark; Nihombashi Mitsui Tower.

57.

Sotobori dori, one of the widest roads I came upon in the Tokyo area. Lots of officebuildings and towers at this street which is near Tokyo Station

58.

Tokyo Tower as seen from the parking lot in front of emperor palace area.

Very old vs. new. One of the buildings from the emperor with at the opposite side the towers of de officearea Marunouchi.
