*Jumping from rooftop to rooftop in an abandoned district, her spider umbra letting her cling to walls and roofs with ease. She quickly scales the closest landmark, a bell tower, for a better view of the place only to find the inside much nicer furnished than she would have expected. Climbing up higher towards the bell, she strikes it twice with the hilt of her machete* It'd be rude not to at least ring the doorbell, hehe. (@HalonatheWildOne)

*A very startled looking angel flies up alongside her. She’s wearing what looks like gardening gear and is covered in dirt.* Oh!!!! That is quite loud!!! Hello there!!!

平日の
横浜ランドマークタワーの展望台って
人が全然いなくて、
サボって惚けるのに最高っすよ(笑)

晴れた日は、
景色を独り占め♪

ではでは、素敵な週末を☆

Yokohama Landmark Tower

by Mitsubishi Estate Architecture and Engineering Division & Hugh Stubbins and Associates, 1993.

296.3 m high, 73 storeys; second tallest building in Japan (fourth tallest structure).  Elevator transit time 1st-69th floor: 43 seconds.

It turned out to be the perfect weather to visit Japan’s most cyberpunk skyscraper.  Views from the top coming later.

This was much, much better than I expected.  We saw less - but less was more on this occasion.

I’m not usually given to bible quotations; I’ve read much better fantasy.  However it’s occasionally a beautiful bit of writing, and 1 Corinthians 13 fits the spectral, doomy flavour of this just as well as Mamoru Oshii thought it did in Ghost In The Shell in 1995:

“For we know in part, and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away. […]For now we see through a glass, darkly”
