Tokyo Pics. Part 2.


Believe it or not, this is an actual street in Shinjuku and not some collage I slapped together to demonstrate the exploding insanity of that place. Whenever I’ve heard or read descriptions about this place, the movie “Blade Runner” often came up. But Shinjuku East on a weekend night makes the LA depicted in “Blade Runner” look like a sleepy village. The crowd level was comparable to Mongkok’s in HK, but I was told it stays that packed and hectic ‘til dawn. While we’re talking about movies, this is the place Bill Murray first sees when he groggily opens his eyes in the cab in “Lost in Translation.”
