Tokyo Twilight Zone is Shintaro Sato’s masterful expression, through his selection of intriguingly chaotic street scenes suspended in twilight, of the teeming energy of the great metropolis of Tokyo.
Here, portrayed with an eerie blending of natural and artificial light, is Tokyo at its most beautiful and enticing.

"There is period of time when the town shines beautifully with particular brilliance," says Shintaro Sato. "Day and night, natural light and artificial light, there is just spectrum of the two lights intermingle with each other. There is also the area of mixture of residential compound with commercial neighborhood. These two circumstances are 'Twilight Zone.' I choose places to photograph on the clear days considering direction of the light effect. Although it is not easy to find interesting places, I never tired of seeing the sunset view of the town that is the mixture of places in light and in dark."
