Claire's Travels: On a bright Saturday morning a wedding procession moved silently across a courtyard of the Meiji-jingu shrine and I felt transported to the past.  The red paper parasol hovering over the bride was mesmerising in contrast to the green tinged copper roof.  Shinto and Buddhist prayers are written and hung within the grounds of temples and shrines.  Koi carp swim above the underwater coins.

Neon Tokyo

Written by Claire: Back to Brighton and reviewing the imagery collected from such a fantastic trip to Tokyo city.  We stayed in the heart of Ginza amidst the skyscrapers:  an explosion of neon lights at ground level and stretching into the sky.  Night time views across Tokyo Bay and downwards to the network of streets sprawling below.  Illuminated signs and light boxes ranged from designer branding to artist constructions.
