Having spoken with Takashi Kitajima about his beautiful pictures of Tokyo in 2013, it is now a good time to follow-up and see what else he is photographing at night. This computer software engineer says he “hardly goes out. Strikes keyboards every morning to midnight,” but apparently when he is outdoors, it’s the right hour to capture these amazing shots of cherry blossom trees, imperial palaces and skyscrapers. Each district of Tokyo magnetically filling our eyes with color and out-of-focus shapes.
