2012 Picture of the Week (47/52) – Tall

If you haven’t noticed by now, this and the previous two Pictures of the Week have been titled using a single adjective.  I’m using these to show what you can find in Japan.  There’s modern, traditional, and now tall.  I took this picture today while out at Minato Mirai in Yokohama.  We went to the Okome Matsuri (Rice Festival) at Aka Renga Soko, which I’ll post about in the next few days.  This picture is of a tall building, which is the tallest building in Japan, but not for long (one in Osaka will be slightly taller).  Landmark Tower has been the tallest building in Japan for 20 years.  I have posted about it before, but this was just such a beautiful day and wonderful conditions for this photo.  The building’s 69th floor has an observatory which costs 1,000 yen to reach, but it gives some amazing views. I love tall buildings, and I hope to go to Tokyo Sky Tree next year.
