Artist's Description

Tokyo is one of the busiest cities in the world, I remember eating dinner on the top floor of our hotel and looking out to the office building opposite. It was filled with Japanese businessmen or Kaishain in Japanese, we started eating at around 6 pm and they continued to work until 9 pm before finally heading home (or off to a Japanese bar to kick back and relax after a long day at work)

This is common practice in Japan, even though their official working hours are only 9-5 most Japanese men get to work a hour early and don’t leave till about 8-9 pm in the evening. That’s a 12 hour working day six days a week! As most Japanese offices are open on Saturdays too.

Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and I can see why given how hard they all work each day.

This shot was taken from our Hotel Room in the Park Hotel in Tokyo. It was the easiest HDR shoot I did on this holiday I just placed the camera on the window ledge and let Tokyo do the rest.
