Wheels

Life is best viewed from the top. That's why there are ferris wheels.

Yokohama Harbor


Odaiba


Fujikyu Highlands

nice nice! i agree a view from the top is really stunning. literally it is and if we relate it to life, it still makes sense.

I stayed at that moon shaped hotel, The Pan Pacific hotel, back in 2004. I remember my wife and I had a heavy bag and a little Japanese lady working there carried my bag. I wanted to give her a tip but I know that is not done in Japan.

Gina said...

the last time I was on a ferris wheel was in grade school pa, when I wasn't that scare-dy. ;P

Looks like big ferris wheels are becoming popular with big cities. There's one in London,in Singapore and now in Yokohama. You're right, humans need another perspective - whether that's their lives or literally their environment.

maganda nga kasi makikita mo lahat, pero malungkot because you cant feel the real life... the excitement of getting at the top...the people you laugh with out of carefree fun, the challenges along the way. when you reach the top, you will realize its lonely there kasi mag isa ka na lang..like in the ferris wheel, isa lang yun nasa tuktok di ba... masaya yun nakikita mong masaya ang mga taong kasama mo, naririnig mo mga tawanan at kanilang kwento..makikita mo yun mga mata nila..mararamdaman mo yun kaligayahan nila... the ferris wheel is a lonely journey..

Sidney said...

Impressive.... but I am afraid of heights! :-(

Rico said...

Shooooot! I have fear of heights! I wouldn't go there lest I want to pee and/or crap on myself. Sheesh!

Meron din palang giant ferris wheel dyan? That first pic reminds me of another pic, sa London naman.

Kelan ka ba punta dito sa Singapore? Para makita mo naman ang SG Flyer. Mas malaki pa kesa sa nasa London. = D
