Architectural photography in Tokyo: Mode Gakuen (Cocoon Tower) and Sky Tree

Tokyo is so ridiculously dense and getting up high to shoot with a long lens, in this case the 300mm f/4 I have for my Nikons, really does show you how dense the place is.

The Coccon Tower (Mode Gakuen school and university) is one of the iconic buildings in the city but this is a rather unconventional view of it. We see just the top of the tower here, with the Tokyo Sky Tree in the background and a whole swathe of the city in between.

This was shot from the the North observation tower of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku, 45 floors up.
