Tokyo: Redux in Red
by Aaron Joel Santos
These are the last few images from Japan for a while. It was a great trip and I can’t recommend a visit to Tokyo more enthusiastically. We stayed in a small hotel near Shibuya Station and the famous crossing. We drank sake in small dark bars and ate ramen out of vending machines and along long fluorescent-lit counters across the city. We tramped through the fashionable Takeshita Street in Harajuku District and the mammoth and fascinating fish market at Tsukiji, near the docks. We heard blisteringly-loud punk rock in a basement club in Shinjuku and joined the throngs of tourists at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa. We walked. And walked. And then walked some more. It was awesome. I’ll echo what I’ve been saying since I left. Go now.
