I went for a walk at 5 am this morning. It was a typically dreary day in the rainy season. Strangely enough, not a single one of the 13.5 million people living in the 23 wards of the city were to be seen. All asleep? Abducted by aliens? Did everyone decide to take a vacation this morning? Proof of the empty city is to be found in the photos below.
Oddly enough, when I went back out at 9:30 am, all 13.5 million people had returned to the streets. It was an odd day in Tokyo, that is for certain.
