Weekend Photo Theme is a weekly photography article where Dale or Franca choose a theme, select 5 pictures to sum that theme up & tie them together with their interests of Architecture, Art, Design & Travel.

Landing in Tokyo, Japan was a dream come true for Franca. She’d wanted to visit Japan since she was a little girl sat in front of the TV and watching all of those Japanese animated cartoons and manga that used to always be on Italian TV.

Our first impressions of Japan were a mixture of surprise and admiration as we found that the country is as remarkable to travel through as it is represented on TV, and for every day that goes by since we were there in 2012 we wish we could return again. Tomorrow would be perfect

The architecture is fantastic, the people lovely and the food incredible. Here are just a couple of pictures from Tokyo, a city best seen in person to be believed.
