Known as being one of the most vibrant, busy and lively places in the world this stunning series of photos titled Tokyo’s Glow by photographer Xavier Portela further proves why Japan's capital should be on everyone's list of places to visit.

A metropolis of high rise buildings, interlinked side streets and bright lights Portela's inspiration for the series came from the culture's rich history with manga, a term used to describe a unique style of comic that originated from Japan during the 19th century.

This inspiration shines through in the photos vibrant array of saturated colours and the pink hue that overlaps them which showcases Tokyo as the energetic city it is. You can see more of Portela's work on Facebook and Instagram.
