Tennōzu Isle, Tokyo

Jun 23, 2022,12:33 PM
 


Has an area of 200,000 square meters (20 hectare / 49.4 acre)
The area was originally constructed for a fort in the Edo period (1603 - 1868)

On my way to Japan Immigration Office to renew my registration card
It was a quick trip and I was on-site for just over one hour
It was the quickest turnaround ever...

Photo was taken from 品川ふ頭橋 (Shinagawafuto Bridge)
Looking north in the direction of レインボーブリッジ (Rainbow Bridge)





It was a quick trip to Tokyo, glad to be back in Nagano Prefecture.

Thanks for looking,
Casey

I have walked from Shinagawa to Tennozu Isle, though. Too bad it was a gloomy day, but it's the rainy season. Lots of these "side streets" (or I should say, "side waterways") in the Shinagawa/Tennozu Isle area, many with yakabune party boats too. Sundown ...

The current immigration facility is much improved over the old offices, Otemachi (?) ... it's been so long that I can't remember. I don't mind the weather... rather overcast or cloudy than bright sun. Twilight is a good time, but considering immigration e...

hahaha... so true about Shinagawa

I am enjoying the phone-camera... I also like the detail in the water surface. I haven't been shooting film... missing that. Casey .
