Evening in Shinjuku

On Saturday me, Viktor (Sweden), Rikard (Sweden) and Owen (Australia) went to Shinjuku to go up the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office building. They have a lookout floor that is accessible to the public. It’s on the 45th floor, so the view is fantastic. I tried to get some photos, but since it was dark and I only had my point-and-shoot camera without a tripod, it was difficult to get really good pictures.

In the picture above you can see the TMGO building to the right, and below are two photos of some of the view from the lookout.

I used the night scene mode on my camera for these pictures, which made the shutter time about 3 seconds. It’s impossible to not get blurry pictures while hand holding the camera, but the long shutter time makes the images cooler. :)

After watching the view for a while and having a little appetiser in the restaurant on the lookout, we wandered down the street and watched some more skyscrapers, like this half-finished one. It had a very cool design and looked completely different from all the other ones in the neighbourhood.

Then it was time to get something to eat. We wandered around a bit more and found a really nice little block of restaurants just next to the train station. It felt much older than the rest. We walked into an alley.

And then into an alley of that alley.

Where we found a place to eat. In the picture below from the left is: Rikard, Owen and Viktor.

Horse... mmm

After having some trouble reading the menu, like always, we dicided on having horse sashimi. Owen had some reservations about eating horse at first, but after some convincing that we do it in Sweden too, he wanted to try it. It was good, although a bit tough to chew and not very cheap.

Then we were off clubbing in Shibuya throughout the night, I got home at 8 am. :p There are some more pictures from Shinjuku here if anyone is interested.

    Man har inte sÃ¥ mycket val… TÃ¥gen slutar gÃ¥ runt 12, sÃ¥ om man vill vara ute längre mÃ¥ste man vara ute tills de första börjar gÃ¥ igen.

    Better to have a guaranteed hot montreal escort companion for the evening than try to locate a date oneself.

    たくさんの一般の人でも利用できる富士山の登山道具レンタルを紹介記事と共に比較しているホームページというのはたくさん存在していますが、もっと大切な点である”選び方”を
    詳細に教えてくれるものといのは、上手に見つけることが難しいものなので困りものです。
    この頃の富士山の登山道具レンタルっていうのは、購入するよりも低料金、テントなど大荷物、配送のやり取りが簡単に進んでいるのです。
