Sakura 2015,Tokyo Midtown


Seventh place is Tokyo Midtown,Minato-Ku,Tokyo,Japan.
This is final place of Sakura 2015.

Tokyo Midtown is near from Roppongi Hills.
So visitors can go the same day.
But it is difficult to judge which place to go at twilight and night.

I chose to go Tokyo Midtown at night.
Because here are many Sakura trees and passing car lights.

Of course,here is also good during daytime.
This street is called Sakura do-ri(means Sakura street).
Here is curving and a little slope.

Information
I didn’t use tripod when I take photo from bridge.
I made use of hand guide of bridge.But to adjust height and angle,I used eraser.
I always bring eraser.It can make various height.And grip is good.
But on the ground,I used tripod.Many visitors were using tripods.
But please be careful not to disturb other people.

Here is out of building.
So, of course entrance fee is free.
