Tokyo, star city on Instagram

The cosmopolitan city of Tokyo is eye-catching... Between its Shinto shrines nestled in the middle of modern buildings, its vast traditional gardens, and skyscrapers in trendy districts, the Japanese capital is a wonderful playground for photographers around the world, amateur or professional, especially for users of Instagram!

1. Tokyo Tower (Minato)

Tokyo Tower offers everything a tower can offer in terms of Instagram photography: height for panoramas, relief for low-angle shots, and a shot that makes sense since Tokyo Tower is one of the city's emblems. with its sister Tokyo Skytree.

Inaugurated in 1958 to echo the Japanese economic miracle, it symbolizes in itself the extraordinary capacity that Japan had to rise from its ashes after the Second World War (1939-1945). A pretty emblem of 333 meters which therefore inspires the Japanese daily!
