NIGHT VIEW

夜景[YAKEI]

The night view from Mt. Hakodate in Hokkaido is one of the world’s ‘top three night skylines’ along with Hong Kong and Naples. There are many romantic nightscape spots in Japan that are especially popular among couples. I, on the other hand, go to such spots alone to capture the best shot, which is usually 15 to 30 minutes after sunset. Having had an enough of pretty views, couples start looking at each other while I am still busy trying to capture shots of the jewel-box-like nightscape, which is now all mine.
