Tokyo at night
Who visits Tokyo ensures that the city gains a new life at night. To prove this urban legend, photographer Masashi Wakui portrayed the Japanese capital in all its nighttime splendor, sprinkled with lights, shadows and characteristic neon.
“By navigating the narrow streets and alleys of Shibuya, Shinjyuku and other neighborhoods, Masashi creates an almost surreal atmosphere with his kaleidoscopic portrait of Tokyo at night,” writes the Bored Panda.
Masashi uses high-performance compact cameras, but changes colors to create a magical quality of the city’s day-to-day scenes. The result pleases not only the artist, who is thus enshrined, but also the Japanese city, whose mystical beauty continues to drag thousands of tourists a year.
