Japan Tokyo Shinjuku Neon

3 May 2010

Afternoon and Evening

Still getting my bearings I headed back out for more walking, and walk I did.
Found an even better food hall and got completely lost inside the train station.
I thought I might buy a spare memory card for my camera, but finally I found something expensive, a card that costs about $50 in australia is $80 australian here. You would think SD cards would be cheap in Japan? Perhaps I am looking in the wrong areas.
Quite a few interesting things happened whilst wandering around, the only one that didnt get photographed (and hence explained below) is all the guys offering me sex in the street. Now I assume they were pimps, but you never know, perhaps in Japan I am appealing to gay men!

Japan-Tokyo-Shinjuku-Neon - A side alley started to fill up with smoke for no reason, I went to investigate, as best I could tell, someone was burning the steak/whale.

Fearing another sarin nerve gas attack masterminded by a crippled religious nutter, I fled to the surface.
And all became clear, the fire was real, there were fire and police and whatever everywhere.


Japan-Tokyo-Shinjuku-Neon - The hydrant tap things they use are gold plated in Japan. Actually I have no clue if there was a fire at all or what all the drama was about.

Down there is the red light district, Kabukicho. Its mainly pachinko parlours but there are lots of 12 year old girls being attacked by tentacles if you look around.

I stood in the middle of the road to take this photo and a traffic cop blew his whistle with great fury, but what was I to do, the traffic was coming now anyway, and theres a road island.

Soon after a protest broke out, seems to be somewhat related to the communist party thing earlier. Amusingly it seems lots of people drive around in vans with loud speakers delivering their message. I really wish I knew what they were going on about.
Back to the protest, it seemed to me police outnumbered the protestors.

Another standard picture, if you click them you can see the exif data that tells you how long the exposure was and all sorts of other info that you arent interested in at all.
