Offering the most amazing view over Tokyo, the Tokyo Skytree capsulates the exact scenery when Japan is mentioned elsewhere. Being at the top (1.480feet/451.2meters high) is almost as if you were the diety looking down on your Sim City. It reminded me of flying, as if in a helicopter; that’s how high we were over the cityscape. As a matter of fact, the Skytree is the tallest building in Japan (second tallest in the world) and only “recently” completed in 2012.

_MG_2827Beautiful views that not even drones are able to capture! It’s a view of a continuous, perceived to be, never ending city. Literally as far as the eye is capable of seeing were buildings. Looking down into the streets you can see a bustling city, like a beehive.

“‘Kiss Land’ is the story after ‘Trilogy’; it’s pretty much the second chapter of my life. The narrative takes place after my first flight; it’s very foreign, very Asian-inspired. When people ask me, ‘Why Japan?’ I simply tell them it’s the furthest I’ve ever been from home. It really is a different planet.”
