Docomo Tower looming over Shinjuku Park; I previously photographed it in 2008.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Thanks to YOU...I know now WHAT that building looming over the gardens is! I've captured it so many times, in spring and autumn, and never knew the DOCOMO was inside there! Thank you for this piece of imformation!
On the other hand, most cherry trees remained without flowers, but the petals make carpets of delicate and intricate texture for out feet to step on carefully....OR...they choose to dance crazily with the winds..Some have landed in my balcony...what joy!

@Japanalia: Hi Gabriela - not much sakura this year? Really? That's a shame... A quick check online and I've found the tower's official name is "NTT Docomo Yoyogi Building", but I'm sure it's known as "Docomo Tower"...

Very 'stately' profile here and I take it the return angles carry the clock faces that once made it 'the world's tallest clock tower'. For Gabriella's benefit, it seems that NTT Docomo own the building rather than occupy it.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie - yes, not every side has a clock face apparently. Maybe there's just the one? I can't tell! As I'm sure you've now seen, and I've just realised, it's officially called the "NTT Docomo Yoyogi Building".

A handsome shot of the park and tower. I especially enjoy the classic bridge in the shadow of the monolith.
