"Shinjuku Walkabout, Takadanobaba Walkabout, Shinbashi Matsuri, Etc."

This batch of video clips begins with riding a Seibu-Shinjuku Line train into Shinjuku, getting off, and walking into the Shinjuku evening.  After that are a couple of walking videos taken in Shinjuku, and then it jumps to another day, where I go on a walkabout in the Takadanobaba Station area.  Then some Tozai Line views, and then (in the evening), riding a train from Yurakucho to Shinbashi, where there was a summer festival taking place.  As part of the festival, I visited a terrace beer garden and basement showa-style izakaya.  The batch wraps up with a couple of Tokyo station views.
