Kabukicho by day..

Kabukicho has a (well deserved) reputation for being an epicentre of vice, but by day, you can almost see a different side of the infamous Shinjuku suburb.



From the numerous hotels..







To the establishments of a more dubious nature..













To what seems like your average street scenes from a regular neighborhood, a walk around Kabukicho during the day leaves you with the realization that this place is anything but ordinary..

That's one devious looking ramen shop. And I noticed someone tore down the host's pictures. How sad!

What I want to know is, who is the old geezer in the line of four pictures right under the "女性専用Club" sign in the 8th picture from the top.

He looks like my high school biology teacher...

Incidentally man, I do in fact rub your brog. ;)

I like the pictures, but these pictures are kind of embarrassed me...:( It's like showing bad side of the Japanese culture...
