Helicopter ride over Tokyo

I had a chance to take a helicopter ride over Tokyo.

Here are some helicopters at Tokyo Heliport.

Just after taking off from the heliport.

We first went to Akasaka-Roppongi area.  This is the center of Tokyo.  The red/white structure is Tokyo Tower.

Shibuya.  The tall building is Hikarie, the new high-rise due to open in April.

Shinjuku - this where we have the most concentration of skyscrapers in Tokyo.

Tokyo Dome - the home of Tokyo Yomiuri Giants Baseball Team.

Senso-ji Temple of Asakusa district.  Water is Sumida River.

Tokyo Skytree - now the tallest building in Japan.  It's grand opening is in May.

I had a very nice sightseeing flight over the city of Tokyo.
