Tokyo Lens: Rooftop From Across The World

This post is a little different because it takes place in Japan, and I thought it would be interesting to share the experience. Last year, four of my friends, my brother, and I saved up money and decided to travel to Tokyo and explored the city. Our goal was to find awesome spots and bring back as many cool pictures as we could.

On our third day, we went to Shibuya, which is one of the 23 city wards of Tokyo. As a group, we decided we should try to get on a rooftop to view an awesome angle of the city, but finding access to one seemed almost impossible. Since every sign is in Japanese, it was hard to figure out where we were going, but after an hour of looking around we found a fire escape that led to the rooftop of a tall building.

Once we were on top, we were only able to enjoy the view for a few minutes before an angry Japanese man chased us down with a pan, enraged because we had trespassed. We ran down the stairs and dispersed into the crowd of people, fortunate to have gotten away with a few pictures.
