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?
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.
It’s been too hot to do much during the day so I went out for a little bit last night.
Not many people were our and most places were closed.
Still, it was nice to get out of the house for a bit.
Its been pouring all day today. After work, I needed to stop at the supermarket for dinner, so I went through the side streets to save some time. The rain made the city lights look especially pretty.
The view from the thirteenth floor of the JR Towers. Pretty, isn’t it?
