Stunning Photos Capture Tokyo Nightscape

| Tokyo , Shinjuku

Tokyo is always a fascinating place to visit at any time of the day, but at night the city truly comes to life, with color, noise, and walls of neon lights and LED screens. Brussels-based photographer Xavier Portela recently captured the spirit of the vibrant metropolis at night in a mesmerizing photo collection called “Tokyo’s Glow.”

The well-known streetscapes are bathed in a soft pink hue, enhancing their beauty and giving them an otherworldly, anime-like appearance like this one taken at one of Tokyo’s busiest enclaves, Shinjuku.

The Sega Building looks just like an illustrated backdrop you’d see in an animated movie.

Even the entrance to Kabukicho’s crowded Ichibangai looks pretty in pink!

The area surrounding Shinjuku’s famous Robot Restaurant, which can be seen on the bottom left of the image above, is one of the busiest and brightest places in the capital.

Further out from Shinjuku is Shinagawa Station, which looks much less crowded but just as beautiful, with the glow of pink making it look like a quiet resort town.
