Panorama TOKYO : Tsukiji  

The twilight view from above the 47th observatory floor of St. Luke's Tower, the twin high-rise building on the Sumida Riverside at Tsukiji, is so fascinating panorama. Under your eyes, you can see the illuminated Kachidokibashi Bridge spanning the mouth of the river. Graceful Rainbow Bridge over Tokyo Port is beyond the mouth. On your left, you see also the illumination of the big Ferris wheel at Ariake changing every moment.

It was fine weather over Tokyo after the rain of last night, but the layer of moist air was lying down on the ground. The gray layer had the dim skyline of buildings begun to turn on the light. Fortunately Mt. Fuji is visible in silhouette beside Tokyo Tower lit up with the vivid illuminations.
