Photos Taken Around Minato, Tokyo

About Minato

Minato is one of Tokyo's 23 wards (a kind of municipality). It has population of 240,000 and an area of about 20 km2. Minato hosts a large number of embassies, has the offices of many major companies, five-star hotels, big temples, commercial, and residential areas. It's probably one of the most international parts of Japan in terms of presence of foreign-owned businesses and residents who are foreign nationals.

"Minato" means "bay," and you can see one of the photos is of Tokyo Bay. More info about Minato on Wikipedia.
