Kappabashi streets and Sky Tree view: Tokyo, Japan

Shot these two the other week on a walk/lesson I did with a student. We stuck ourselves in this little side-street for a few minutes as it had an interesting view of the new Sky Tree tower, which everyone was tending to look at when they passed. I often do this sort of thing to either get people to look in a certain direction or past me at something behind me. People are curious. They tend to look at certain things; down streets, at screens, at bright things. If you stand in the right place, you can get them to look just where you want. :-)
