Harukas 300

Valentines day we set out in a new direction from the hotel. Turning a corner we were suddenly at a pretty high building.

“I think that’s the highest building I have ever seen…” Isa said. My reply was; naaah it’s not that high… We then started counting and both got to 60 floors. Turns out Harukas is the highest building in Japan. Access to a little garden at the 16th floor was free, but to go to the top floor (58-60) you had to pay an admission fee.

The view from 16th floor garden was impressive. The city went as far as the eyes could see in all directions. But it was early in the day and we needed food so we opted for a nearby shopping mall.

We found a huge collection of photo booths that was heavily visited next to a very nice food court. Denmark could really learn something from Japan when it comes to eating out. Even a food court in a shopping mall serves really good food. We spend the day browsing shops and eating.

As the sun set we went back to Harukas, this time to the top, and was meet by this view:

On our first day we came by this tower which suddenly didn’t look so big any more.

We had fun playing around with the shutter speed on our camera and annoyed everyone around us by crawling around on the floor and moving things around to get the right framing.

We ended up spending almost 3 hours up there and was kicked out as the last ones by 10pm.
