Shinjuku

Shinjuku

The prefecture of Shinjuku is one of Tokyo’s busier places.  Most of Tokyo’s tallest skyscrapers are located here, as well as its biggest and busiest train station.

The photo above shows a few of these skyscrapers nestled in a corner between two major roads. I discovered this while following my Lonely Planet guide book’s walking tour of the area.  I almost missed it completely as I was following a sidewalk/overpass with my nose in the book.  Plus, there’s so much activity to see at ground level, that you almost forget to look up and see these great views.

Explosion of Butterflies

Thousands of paper butterflies fill the Rogers Centre at a Coldplay concert in Toronto on July 30. The butterflies were launched during the song Lovers in Japan / Reign of Love. This was one of the highlights from a wonderfully interactive and generally amazing concert.
