Shinjuku on a Sunday morning
I was in Shinjuku yesterday. The weather was perfect for exploring…Here’s some photos I took …They might not be that interesting to those who have already been to Shinjuku （新宿）.
LUMINE’s advert panel changes from time to time. This was how it looks like in late October last year.
The uniquely shaped building below is the Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower (モード学園コクーンタワー) . This 50-story educational facility houses 3 colleges: Tokyo Mode Gakuen (東京モード学園), a Fashion vocational school, HAL Tokyo (HAL東京）, a Design & technology College, and Shuto Ikō （首都医校）, a Medical College.
Kimura Takuya’s advert is still there. I first spotted it in late October last year. Wow. I wonder how long it’ll be there…
Other gyudon chain restaurants are Yoshinoya （吉野家）, Matsuya （松屋）. I personally prefer Matsuya and Sukiya. I like Sukiya’s Takana Mentai Mayoinaisse Gyudon（高菜明太マヨ牛丼） and Kimuchi Gyudon (キムチ牛丼). Matsuya’s beef are not that fatty compared to Yoshinoya! And Miso soup is complimentary too.
H&M was on sale but I did not buy anything…
I’m surprised that Shinjuku’s Kinokuniya Bookstores have so many foreign language books, even French & German! I went there to look at some Design books but ended up buying Murakami Haruki’s latest novel “1Q84“. *itchy hands* No. I did not get the Japanese one… I bought the Taiwanese Chinese translated version. I can’t wait for the English version to be published but there’s no exact date of when it will be released… and I’m just too lazy to read in Japanese. So Chinese version would do for now.
*note : There are 2 Kinokuniya bookstores in Shinjuku, one near the east exit & the other one is in Takashimaya Times Square （高島屋タイムズスクエア）.
Ok. I’m gonna end this post here to read my “1Q84“. Hope all of you had a good start this week!? Mine was not that bad. I managed to get some work done without being disturbed!
Oh. btw. If you wanna know how Shinjuku look like at night. Check out these photos I took some time ago over here >>
