Tokyo: isolation

A sequel to the previous post. One of the prevailing impressions of Tokyo from abroad is one of an overcrowded beehive of a city, where people cross en masse at Shibuya and are crammed into metro carriages by station attendants.

In fact, Tokyo can be one of the most spacious and peaceful cities, if you choose where and when to go. Admittedly, most of these images were made relatively early in the morning, but relative to many other cities I have visited, it was still remarkable how commonly I found myself physically isolated in this massive city.
