very nice photo Peter!
Good use of the available leading lines, nice perspective, and very nicely composed.
Well done!

Thanks Bill. Appreciate the feedback.

Just a little note to anyone who reads the EXIF data. This was shot with a 14mm manual lens, which the camera incorrectly records as being 50mm. Due to the extra wide angle I was able to get a steady shot at 1/15s by burst firing handheld (no tripods allowed here) for a clean exposure at ISO 200 and f/8.

The manual focus Samyang/Rokinon 14mm makes your accomplishment even greater ;-)
Manual focus + handheld at an upward angle is tough.

Nice one! where was it in Tokyo?

Hi Hakim, I actually can't remember exactly where this place is I'm sorry. It was within kind of Nakano/Shinjuku area but a quiet area.
