Japan chooses its top 3 night views

posted on October 22, 2015

The votes are in! Approximately 4,500 night-view enthusiasts submitted their votes for what they think are the best areas to take in Japan's sprawling, twinkling cityscapes after dark, and the results were revealed at the Night View Summit 2015, held on October 9 in Kobe.

1. Nagasaki

The city of Nagasaki has come a long way since the nuclear attack that ended the war in the Pacific theatre, and ultimately World War II, on August 9, 1945. The city is now a prominent port town, with a strong industry in ship building.

2. Sapporo

3. Kobe
