Amazing! Apr 09, 2009
Shinjuku at night is an amazing sight! All the lights and tall buildings brighten up the place making it really exciting!

The streets of Shinjuku are always packed with people, locals and tourists. The many shops and restaurants liven it up even more!

Shinjuku is a large shopping, business and entertainment area.

Some of the attractions in Shinjuku include:

* many large department stores most of these are located out of the South or New South exit of the train station.

* three large chain discount electronic stores located out of both the east and west exit of the station.

* Shinjuku gyoen (Shinjuku Park) located out of the sout exit of the station and a short walk across the south terrace area. There is a small entrance fee of 200 yen.

* The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office which has an observation tower on the 45th floor and its free.

I recommend staying in Shinjuku till early evening when you can see all the bright neon signs all lit up. I personally think it is much more impressive than the lights in Ginza.

The best area to see all the neon lights is just out of the east exit of the station.

If you cross the main street and head down a small side all this is Kabukicho district which features many cheap resturants and bars.

You can easily spend a whole day exploring in Shinjuku and its very cheap way to see the sights.

Great Photo Location at Night Jan 25, 2007

I think everybody ever heard this name. It is one of major commercial centers in Tokyo. There are department stores, specialist electronic and camera shops, cinemas, restaurants and bars, and international hotels.

When I went there, I didn't explore much the stores. I enjoyed the view instead. I was amazed by lights and the comercial advertisements. I found this location was great for taking pictures. So, I decided to use this location for my experiments. I asked Cekdin, my partner in crime [if taking pictures at the street is a crime ;-)], to be the model.

Ah to be 20 again!
So today I spent the whole day in the company of a 20-year-old Japanese student named Mamoru. We met in Shinjuku, then attempted to eat at a few okonomiyaki restaurants, all of which were closed. Aft…bright lights of Shinjuku. To cap off the night, we headed over to a teeeeeeeny tiny bar upstairs in some…
