The composition of this photo is great, but the framing needs some work. The eyes seem to attract most of the attention so when you cro...

Which is not in Kyoto so we're technically backtracking a bit.
S'all good.

We spent the second day touring Tokyo itself, specifically Harajuku, Shinjuku and Asakusa.
I met up with an old friend of mine (Yuichi) outside the Harajuku station and we got to catch up
and hang out the whole day, so that was good.

But anyway, first was Harajuku.
Harajuku is known quite a bit for Meiji Jingu, and for being the fashion center of Japan.
There's an entire street there dedicated to food and clothing. Like an outdoor mall but without
the other shops.

Meiji Jingu is one of the larger temples in Tokyo, and outside of that I can't give you a whole lot of information
because we didn't talk a whole lot about the temple itself.

We did spend time shopping in Harajuku, which was a blast in and of itself.
Yuichi and I sat awkwardly in women's clothing shops as our friends tried on hundreds of clothing,
and we found the soba noodle version of Subway!

Somewhere in that span of time we walked into a Hyaku-en shop, or a 100 yen shop.
It's basically their version of a dollar store (Hyaku = 100. 100 yen = ~1 dollar)
Hyaku-en shops however are far more superior to their American counterparts. They have
everything you could possibly imagine. Groceries, toiletries, school supplies, toys, statues, make-up etc.
The store itself had four floors, and that appeared to be normal after we visited more Hyaku-en shops later in the trip.

After Harajuku we went to Asakusa. Which is another area known for an extremely large temple, and
also for the Tokyo Sky needle, which is the tallest building in Japan.

In Asakusa we tried Chocolate banana's, more green tea ice cream (I ate a crap-ton of stuff lemme tell you)
Went shopping for a little bit in another sort of outdoor mall place, and hopped back on the train to Shinjuku.

Shinjuku, the city of lights, is the part of Tokyo famous for all of it's skyscrapers and ridiculously large department stores.
They had a 6 story bookstore. It was ridiculously huge. Got what I was looking for, but STILL.
Shinjuku is called the city of lights because when it gets dark, it pretty much lights itself up.
I spotted about 4 mini "time's squares" chilling out on our night excursion. It was quite amazing.

Our last stop of the day was the top floor of a government owned skyscraper a little ways out of the main district of Shinjuku.
This was where I shot all the nightscapes you see in the gallery, and wished I had a polarizer or something so I could get past the reflections in the glass.

The view and the atmosphere was very romantic.
And I say that as a single man, but in my defense I saw many couples walking around the windows.

That was day two, I'll keep you waiting for day three.

My apologies, your awesome over-rided my excitement meter and it shattered into a billion pieces, therefore I was unable to aptly portray my giddiness at seeing you here.
