Even IT geeks love the Park Hyatt Tokyo

Unrelated to points and miles, I was doing some IT research and found myself on Brocade’s website.  Brocade is a large data and storage networking specialist, AKA IT geeks like myself. The background photo shows a big vast city with two semi-large buildings that aren’t particularly distinguishing. That could be a lot of places but it felt very familiar.

I found the same shot later that day in Wired magazine with a different message.

Hmmm.  I decided to peruse the Points, Miles and Martinis Archive to try to jog my memory.

Success. A shot straight out the Shinjuku Park Tower toward Mount Fuji in Tokyo, home of the Park Hyatt Tokyo.

The shot perplexes me a bit since this view is towards Mount Fuji but at night is not as dramatic as the views in the other directions back toward the heart of Tokyo.

It doesn’t appear Brocade has an office in Shinjuku so one can only assume the photographer must have had status and been upgraded to a Mount Fuji view room. Winking smile
