More Kamata

After work I decided to do a bit more exploring. During work, I can only see a bit from the window in the staff room, or experience a tiny fraction of it when I go out for lunch.

At night, everything is lit up beautifully. I found that this extends about three blocks from the station and is only on the west side.

Most businesses are restaurants, pubs, or pachinko places. Here you can find just about any sort of food you could want.

Some of the buildings tower, but the most interesting places are found in side alleys, under huge aunings.

A few student tell me that this city is called the dirtiest city, but I don’t really think so. What do you think?

Akihabara at Night

I decided to explore a bit of Akihabara last night, for a lack of anything else to do.

I popped into a few archades, walked through the streets, and looked though a couple of stores.

It was really crowded and there were a ton of people trying to drum up business for various cafes and clubs.

I didn’t stay long before getting back on the train home.
