Tourists Visit Tokyo To Experience The Remarkable 'Sea Of Clouds'

Travelling to another country is always an interesting experience, but travelling to Tokyo, Japan is probably one of the most dramatic culture shocks.

Not only does the city feel straight out of a movie, but there is a remarkable event that people travel to experience that is nothing short of majestic.

If you go to the Chichibu region north of Tokyo, you can experience the phenomenon called unkai which translates to "sea of clouds".

The unkai events happen because the cloud cover is so thick and rolls over the area as if it were a body of water.

Photographers plan trips to the Minoyama Park to capture this amazing event that blends all the colors of the city into a spectacular scene.
