The Return (Day 17) Back-to-school

Another day at school. Ceramics class.

English language lab.

Back near our hotel, admiring the fantastic contemporary architecture for which Shinjuku is famous. The rainforest buttressed-rooted-like Yasuda Kasai Kaijo building reflected in the Zenken building’s glass walls.

The Mode Hal Iko building.

A very wet view from the 50th floor of the Nomura building.


You get a lot of exercise in Japan just crossing a busy street – major intersections have pedestrian subterranean arcades or overpasses. Behind this one again, the Yasuda Kasai Kaijo.

Pachinko parlours abound. I can’t quite see the attraction of these pinball machines but they are EVERYWHERE.
