Shibuya Blue Cave in Tokyo

Shibuya Blue Cave is a popular and instagram worthy illumination event held in Shibuya city during winter.
Approx 600,000 blue LED lights illuminate the street that stretches for about 1km.

I arrived at the the entrance of Yoyogi Park Keyaki Namiki.
This is the best photo spot for me because it is filled with illuminations from top to bottom.

Adjustment of iPhone camera at Shibuya Blue Cave 2018
I adjusted the exposure as it was dark.
Tap the screen and you should see a square and a sun marked brightness-slider.
Swipe up the brightness-slider for blighter exposure.
Stop the swiping when you reach the desired exposure level.

I retouched a photo by Lightroom CC app.
I realized that the quality of iPhone picture in the night evolves so much.
I couldn’t shoot illuminations just as I saw by iPhone7 plus or older ones.

I took this photo at the opposite entrance at Shibuya Koen Dori Street.
It is also nice, but above is spacious.
