Haneda Airport at Twilight

Dramatic sunset viewed from the open deck

The other day I visited Tokyo International Airport (Haneda Airport) to see Edo-koji Street, which is a replicated town of the Edo Period.

Having explored the shops on this street on the 4th floor, I rode an escalator to the 5th floor to get to the observation deck. The sun was setting and the twilight sky was burning red. Curious mushroom-shaped clouds loomed in the darkening sky and it looked as though the world was about to end on this day! The truth is a typhoon was expected to hit Tokyo area the next day, thus the ominous clouds were growing in the sky. Anyway, if you'd like to see a dramatic sky without a hustle, this observation deck is the place to go!

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
