This is such a great location; I've got a shot somewhere from almost the exact same position, taken during the day however!

See, this is your signature and it's marvelous. You know how to set up a night shot well, choosing a good angle, a place to take advantage of the fact that it is a night shot, and then get wonderful tones and super blacks (that left edge is perfect). I wish I could take photos like this.

You have posted some great night shots. The two of Toji were very nice but this is my favorite I think. The angled streets and wooden buildings are iconic of Japan for me. I think I've only seen such streets in Kyoto though. Although I didn't get to travel to extensively while in Japan, most place were more "modern" and lost the charm you have captured here. Great work.
