Seeing Tokyo at Night from Above Makes It Look Like a City for the Machines

By Casey Chan on at

It’s not the best way to capture the uniqueness of a city like Tokyo—all the way up in the sky, and away from the energy—but these aerial views are nice because they show off the massive sprawl and the lighting of city life at night. There are just so many damn buildings, and it’s so crowded. Plus being so far removed from the life in the city almost looks like a city for the machines.

My favourite shot in the video by Justin Tierney:

It’s also incredible to see the roads and motorways serve as arteries for the city.
