Tokyo Tower day&night

I took these pictures of Tokyo Tower from Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills. The sightseeing spot is located in 52nd floor where you can also enjoy 2 different museums and some super high class cocktail bars. I prefer to have my gin tonics in places a bit more humble though..

Horse playing PC Engine

Diego, a good friend of mine took this hilarious picture in a retro videogame shop in Akihabara. The pic was so good I couldn't resist creating a ¨motivation¨ with it.
I still don't know if this subject could barely see what he was playing, but he was doing pretty good actually! Yeah.. you know.. this is Akihabara.

36th Grand Sumo Tournament at Ryogoku

After long time waiting, today I had the chance to attend a sumo tournament. It took place in Ryogoku, an awesome stadium designed only for this purpose. The lower categories started fighting at 11am until lunch time. From 3pm to 5pm was the time for the ¨big boys¨.
One thing that surprised me was that there are actually some gaijin (foreigner) fighters and they did it pretty good. The combats usually are really fast but incredibly intense and it's admirable the respect that fighters show each others during all bout stages.
Besides all pictures I took, you can also watch the semifinals, one of the most intense and spectacular moments of the evening, Yokozuna against Barto.
3, 2, 1... FIGHT!
