Of course Kyoto is a great place, but how they arranged their taxis, I don't know. As you can see is the lane at the far right the "active" one. But the second lane on the left the one that is queuing. But what about the far left one? You must obviously be an taxi driver to understand it. But I had no patience to see how it evolved. Any the point of view was also very nice because of the view on the very long shopping street. Yep Kyoto is definitely worth a visit.
Oh and yes I tilted it intentionally, basically for the street.

What I like, and there is only a glimpse, are the moutains in the top right hand corner. I love it when you have these metropolitan sprawls adjacent to moutains.
As for the taxis? Maybe they try to make images (one taxi = one pixel) so that people using your viewpoint can enjoy the view?

Hehehe, ze worden steeds mooier en bizarder die Japanse straat scenes. Hoe kan je het verzinnen :) Wel erg goed gespot. Dit zijn nou precies de foto-mogelijkheden die ik totaal over het hoofd zou zien. Gelukkig is er nog TE zodat ik er toch van kan genieten. Good job.
