This is Meiji Shrine Outer Garden in Shinjuku-ku in Tokyo. This is the Western style garden built with the meaning of accomplishing Emperor Meiji's achievements by future generations. It is called the outer garden to the inner garden in Meiji-jingu in Yoyogi. It is the feature that the outer garden makes "Western style" the keynote to Meiji-jingu which is an inner garden making shrine construction the keynote. Moreover, some sport facilities such as an athletic field and baseball fieldas well as ginkgo roadside trees are located at this area. The building with the dome shape seen in the inner/central part is a museum exhibited centering on the pictures describing the political situation of the end-of-Edo-Period and Meiji term related to Emperor Meiji in an art gallery. Anyway, it was pedestrian paradise from 9:00 in the morning to 5:00 in the evening from Aoyama street to an art gallery, since it was Sunday on that day.

At the opening of the photo, I was surprised to discover this couple sitting in the middle of the road. Your note explains why this is possible. The picture is spectacular, clean and deep. Light and color are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day

This is a fine and quite spectacular composition. The two persons sitting in the street close to the camera help to create a superb depth, assisted by the white lines and the rows of trees. It's a strange feeling to see a fairly large street like this completely empty, apart from these two persons and I think two more much further away.

They are in command it seems on this peaceful sunday when the road is totally clear of traffic and it looks as though they are reading or something. The depth in the image is all about composition and perspective as that is already there and you have found the best angle to shoot. The colours, lighting are good and excellent opportunist image. I think it works well and adds a bit of humour to photography. Well done

Fantastic shot of this beautiful alley. Good simetry, giving a nice perspective withe the building on the background. The colors are well saturated and good contrast. The people on the chairs added a special touch on the scene. Nice one.
