1/18 Tokyo (Shinjuku)

Next days i’m gonna upload 18 pictures of my last trip to Japan. All I can say about this trip is it was an incredible and awesome experience for my five senses. Beautiful landscapes, big cities, cleanliness, silence and noise, order and chaos, modernity and tradition, excellent food and a lot of nice people who were always giving me a helping hand everytime i was absolutely lost in translation.

Roughly 10% of the Japanese population, more than 15 million people live in Tokio, one of the world’s largest cities.

The initial shock when you visit Shinjuku is considerable, but it won’t kill you. North-west of the city’s downtown area, this neighbourhood is total Tokio: elegant prosperous business quarter to the west, exuberant high and low life to the east, and underground a whole other teeming city of shops, boutiques and sushi bars. Big buildings, neon lights, underground pavements, overground railways, busy people going everywhere,.. and absolute gift for your senses!

These 18 pictures are dedicated to all the Japanese i met in this amazing country last August.

O-sewa ni narimashta!
