Things to Photograph in Tokyo

Here are some of my thoughts on what to photograph while you're in Tokyo. I made it for my friends who are coming to visit for only a few days. It's a working list, suggestions are welcome:

  • Cosplay in Yoyogi Park: teenagers who dress up as their favorite animation characters
  • Tsukiji Fish Market: largest fish market in the world
  • Yasukuni Shrine during a right wing demonstration: the right-wing radicals are both photogenic and relatively camera friendly (as long as you're not a communist, Chinese, Korean, or anything else they hate). They actually like posing for Westerners (the blond, blue-eyed sort).
  • Shinjuku Station at 8:30am: only if you're highly compressible
