Tokyo - Spring Blossoms and the Skyline - Japan

I put my 2nd video up last night which consists of footage of the places in these photos :). I will link to the video in the first comment to this post!

The location is the beautiful Hama-rikyu Gardens (浜離宮恩賜庭園, Hama-rikyū Onshi Teien) on a rainy spring day. I was lucky enough to catch the very first plum blossoms and cherry blossoms of the year.

And then I took a boat along the Sumida River where I was able to see gorgeous Tokyo skyline views and some of the 12 bridges that run along the river (all very visually appealing!). Such an interesting array of architecture in Tokyo!

Hope you enjoy!

(and if you want to see the video just read the first comment to this post here for the link...)

Tokyo Through The Lens - A Tokyo Travel Vlog - Part 2 - Vivienne Gucwa (info below!) Subscribe here for more: http://bit.ly/subscribetoviv

I am a professional fine art travel photographer. I do travel photography (still photography) for a living. I recently went to Tokyo. This is the second part of a series of vlogs based on footage I filmed while in Tokyo. I was there with 4 other people and we had an incredible time. 

In this vlog there is footage of the beautiful Hama-rikyu Gardens (浜離宮恩賜庭園, Hama-rikyū Onshi Teien) on a rainy spring day. I was lucky enough to catch the very first plum blossoms and cherry blossoms of the year. There is also footage taken while riding a boat that goes along Tokyo's Sumida River. The Sumida river is a great vantage point to view part of Tokyo's skyline.

This will be a series. Next in the series: I may cover Ginza at night as well as a historic alley in Shinjuku. I am heading to Paris in a few days so the next video won't be up until I get back from Paris.

Hope you enjoy!

Tokyo - Blade Runner edition

🚀 🌃

Taken with my Sony A7S and edited on my phone with Priime App…

Used the Priime styles: Bushwick + Nice + Streets + Shadowline

✨💫✨

(This has been such a fun plane ride - super chill - semi-empty. Perfect for editing photos!)

P.S. You can find that app here if you are curious (iOS for now and Android coming in the future):

Tokyo!! Lost in Translation hotel room tour and the Tokyo Subway!...(and watch me freak out over my view of the city in real time!! ;) )

Tokyo Through The Lens - A Tokyo Travel Vlog - Part 1 (info below!)

I recently went to Tokyo. This is the first part of a series of vlogs based on footage I filmed while in Tokyo. I was there with 4 other people and we stayed at the hotel featured in the movie Lost in Translation.

In this vlog there is a room tour of my room at the Park Hyatt Tokyo in Shinjuku, the incredible views from my room window (had a view of Mt. Fuji!), some footage of Tokyo in the rain since it was raining the first day that we arrived in Tokyo, and my first experience with the Tokyo subway.

This will be a series. Next in the series: cherry blossoms in Tokyo, beautiful skyline views of the city from a boat on the river there, shabu-shabu, a tea ceremony and other fun stuff. I am traveling to California this week so I should have Part 2 up in a week or so and then I will have the other parts up much quicker!!

Hope you enjoy!

Video Table of Contents:

00:59 - Me freaking out over how awesome the view is from the room (it was foggy that day but I included final photos I took later in the week)
