Dark Tokyo

Anyone who’s ever been to Tokyo or even seen pictures of it is aware it’s a glimmering metropolis of flashing lights and illuminated billboards. However, with the loss of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant after the recent earthquake and tsunami, the Japanese have had to minimize their power usage with obvious consequences to Tokyo’s night time cityscape. Darwinfish105 (Japanese), who had a featured video of a Gundam Mecha on this site a couple of months ago, was fortunate enough to capture several night time-lapses of Tokyo before and after the disasters. The difference is immediately obvious and captured in great detail.
