Photographer Captures Busy But Beautiful City Streets Unique to Tokyo

Photographer Tatsuto Shibata (known as on Instagram) is known for his ability to capture the spirit of modern Tokyo. From the chaotic main avenues to quiet side streets, Shibata’s photographs show just how multi-faceted the metropolis really is.

Even oft-photographed spaces, such as the expansive crosswalks of Ginza, take on a new dimension through his lens. Shooting at the perfect time of day, his aerial perspective captures the elongated shadows of commuters and tourists, providing a dynamic light and shade to the composition. “Tokyo is one of the biggest cities in the world and it is always crowded,” the photographer tells My Modern Met via email. “Everyone is hustle and bustle. I enjoy photographing the chaotic street views of Tokyo.”

But for every chaotic view, Shibata manages to sneak in some quiet moments on the side streets of Shinjuku or the reflective beauty of colorful fireworks. Look through his feed and you’ll discover there’s more than just Tokyo in his repertoire. Shibata travels far and wide, whether south down to Kyoto, within Asia to South Korea and China or across the ocean to New York City. No matter the location, he manages to frame the scene perfectly, transporting his followers to each city.
