One of the best parts about jet lag flying west is that you wake up early and there is something magic in the empty streets, as if time had stopped. Above a few people begin their days near the Shinbashi train station 新橋駅; below the narrow streets that hum with human energy late into the night are shuttered and quiet.
Below, the world-famous shopping district of Ginza 銀座, empty on a Sunday morning. Nearby is the notorious Nakagin Capsule tower, 中銀カプセルタワー and also a fun shot of two shinkansen locomotives coupled nose-to-nose at Tokyo Station 東京駅, one stop north.
