This is the New York Bar - Park Hyatt Shinjuku - where all the defining moments in Lost In Translation was filmed.
This is where Scarlett Johannson and Bill Murray's characters collided, between youthfulness and mid-life dilemmas.
The movie's sense of isolationism is portrayed in this photo - where 300m above Tokyo, a couple is conversing in the almost deserted New York Bar. While around and below them, the city life moves on by without a pause.

Very Urban photo and nicely captured.
I like the shades, and the way you have captured the atmosphere. I also like the way you have put the people in the corne rather than in the centre and thus changing the focus.

The low height of the camera is also great, just sad not to have anything of the great view from there. But with the low height, it is, by definition impossible to have!
A slightly disapointing place to go, the New York Bar, after having seen the movie ;-)
