For one reason or another... and another... and another, I've spent time in Shinjuku on and off ever since 1984, soon after I stepped off of that 747. And still it continues. Here are a few video clips from February 23rd, 2010.
"Shinjuku Rush-Hour South Exit Ticket Gate Area" (100223-1850)
Walking through the crowded (6:50 p.m.) area near the south exit/entrance ticket gates.

"Food Stall, etc., in Front of West Side of Shinjuku Station" (100223-2137)
There seemed to be a lot of students with travel bags heading to the station. They may have just finished classes and are headed out somewhere for spring break?

"Omoide Yokocho - February 23rd, 2010" (100223-2139)
Another walk through Shinjuku's Omoide Yokocho - a time slip area that is increasingly becoming a tourist destination.
新宿の思い出横丁 東京 (Recorded on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010, at 9:39 p.m.)
"Crosswalk & Background Trains" (100223-2140)
As people hurry across a large pedestrian crossing, a couple of trains rumble by - providing a backdrop of sight and sound....
