Shinjuku Signs

In all of Tokyo, I think there's no better place to take photos than Shinjuku.
North, south, east or west are all good photo opportunities.

A couple from today displaying the in-your-face advertising/decor of Tokyo's buildings.

Karaoke, anyone?

Shinjuku monuments

Shinjuku Variety

A few from around Shinjuku.
A quick rundown of what we have from top to bottom:
- Down the road from New South Exit.
- The brown building on the left side is Hotel Sunroute; the first hotel that I stayed in when I got to Japan...and the best.
- Washington Hotel; the third hotel that I stayed in.
- Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building.
- Ongoing Construction close to the South East Exit (to the left of the photo).

The Porn Collective

Just a smattering of porn around the streets.
I managed to photograph a woman taking a pic of the adult movie theatre (top). This is very close to the South East Exit.

Shinjuku streets

If I remember correctly, there were taken around the Kabuki-cho area of Shinjuku getting close to Okubo.

Random street scenes

A quick visual tour of a rundown building in Kudanshita, Tokyo.

The likes of which you won't see in your tour guide.

Sprawling Metropolis

These pictures were taken in Suidobashi, Tokyo.

The top picture you can see the L'Aqua and Tokyo Dome areas to the bottom right.

Also of interest is the large centreless ferris wheel and roller coaster that runs through it.

The bottom picture looks slightly towards Ueno in the distance.

Suidobashi (and Korakuen)itself is famously home to such places as the Kodokan(mecca of Judo) and the Tokyo Dome, home of the baseball team, Tokyo Giants.

It's a busy place during the day and is a business hub as well as having some large high schools and universities around the area.

At night, it's quiet.
