"Yurakucho to Tokyo, and Nighttime Shinjuku in the Rain"

Beginning with a right side view out the window of a Keihin-Tohoku Line train that I took from Yurakucho to Tokyo, and then showing different scenes in Shinjuku - from the Chuo Line platform to scenes from around the South Exit and then views from Nishi-Shinjuku.

Right side window view on a Keihin-Tohoku Line train running from Yurakucho Station to Tokyo Station - running in parallel with an inbound Shinkansen train, which is also pulling into Tokyo Station.  After getting off at Tokyo, taking the stairs down for a transfer.

"Shinjuku - Southeast Exit to South Exit" (100511Tu-1857)

Exiting Shinjuku Station from the Southeast Exit and then walking through a shopping passageway to the South Exit.  Being just before 7:00 p.m., it's fairly crowded.

"Shinjuku - Japan's Most Crowded Train Station" (100511Tu-1900)

Walking through the area in front of the South Exit of Shinjuku Station at 7:00 p.m.  Shinjuku has the highest number of people passing through it in Japan.  Watching this video, keep in mind that this is just one exit - the East and West exits have about the same number of people passing through.  There are also other, less crowded exits.

"Shinjuku - West Side Crossing in Rain" (100511Tu-1902)

Walking up to a crossing in Nishi-Shinjuku, waiting for the light to change, and then walking across in the rain in a sea of umbrellas.

"Shinjuku Omoide-Yokocho in the Rain" (100511Tu-2206)

A walk through Omoide-Yokocho in the rain.  Incidentally, at one point, you can hear one of the shopkeepers talking to another shopkeeper - I'm not sure what language it is, but it's not Japanese.

"Heading from Nishi-Shinjuku to Kabukicho" (100511Tu-2208)

Crossing a main street and then walking under the tracks from Nishi-Shinjuku - heading towards Kabukicho, which is on the left side of the street after coming out from beneath the rail bridge.  A Sobu Line (Chuo Line local) passes overhead just before I go under the bridge.
