Fuji-yama with the Tokyo Tower at 30 minutes after sunset.
I waited for 40 minutes the moment when Mt.Fuji and the city lights are evenly balanced.
Taken from the 47th floor observatory of St.Luke's Garden at Tsukiji. Put the camera on the window frame and wrapped my jacket around the lens and pushed the lens against the window pane, so that the indoor lighting should not reflect.

Hisashi-san kon nichi wa,
I like these night series you're currently posting, there is so much to do with the light in Tokyo at night... even before the full night, coming here before the beginning of true darkening but after the lights have been switched on you can show a picture with many details up to iconic Mt Fuji, combined it with the artificial light glow and the warmth of the sky, superb !
Have a nice day JY

A superb result for an image shot through glass, with the silhouette of Fuji San clearly visible against the marvellous orange glow of the sunset. Arigato!

Nice work and not easy as you described in the note. You took the photo at the right time regarding the balance between the natural lightning and the urban lights.
Tokyo seems to be a very interesting town.

Hello Hisashi. Tokyo. A beautiful picture with strong colors. The evening sky is fantastic. But above all I am astonished at the high technical quality of this photo. Very beautifully. My acknowledgment. Best regards, Wolfgang.

Hello friend, thank you for allowing me to visit my gallery and hear yours.
Such outlets, for me, are always spectacular. Overviews night filled with splendor, light, clarity, beauty, despite the chaos that might be presented as a great city. The depth of field, has a good command on the scene, allowing us to reach beyond.
Certainly, a great job. Congratulations

tremendous shot! The view, the colors and the overall definition are superb. And... you took this shot with this camera against the window pane? WOW! My most sincere compliments, buddy.
You have a wonderful day, I'll be seeing you.

Hello Hisashi san!
Excellent picture of Tokyo and the famous mountain Fuji-yama!
Wonderful composition, superb sharpness and lightness!
View of the red sunset sky is amazing! If I was Japanese I would write a hokku about this - but I don't know how to compose it :)
Kind eegards from Russia,

This is one of my favorite views of Tokyo, but I've never seen it like this, with Mt.Fuji! Thanks for sharing this photo! Especially the execution is very good, since indeed there is a problem with reflecting lights in St.Luke's!

This is one of my favorites cityscapes of your city night collection pictures.
What more can i say after reading all the good critiques you have received?
Another perfect picture of your gallery!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Do you know if it is forbiden to use a tripod in this observatory?

I have seen the miniature of this photo in your intro, and it has captivated me immediately.
Because of the light and the magnificent colors of the sunset and of the urban landscape of Tokyo's city, which shines as a jewel due to the lighting of its buildings.
The silhouette of the Mt. Fuji cut away on the pink sky, it has a magnificent contrast with the golden lighting of Tokyo Tower.
A great photo.
