I visited Solamachi (sky town) at the Tokyo Sky Tree today. It was my first time ever to enter the Sky Tree since it opened last May. They have lots of interesting shops on the first few floors. And the weather was perfect today.
It was extremely strange weather in Tokyo yesterday with this freak sandstorm, apparently blown over from China. These photos show the sky in my neighborhood on what was a bright, sunny day until the sand blew over. In addition to huge winds, I don’t think it was particularly safe. Most people wore masks but it still irritated eyes.
I hope it clears up today.
It’s like an early spring hit Tokyo today.
I have all the heaters turned off and it’s very comfortable.
Instead of using the indoor bike I was able to go cycling along the Nakagawa for the first time in weeks and weeks. It felt really good. There were some beautiful things to see but I didn’t feel like stopping and taking photos.
