|Takeshita Dori in the Snow|
Tokyo, like I said, doesn't get much snow, so they also don't have much in the way of snow removal. As in, the snow wasn't shoveled or plowed or anything, so the sidewalks were awful mush and the curbs into the crosswalks had huuuuge puddles of melted slush. But, I didn't mind. I didn't mind even when I was walking home with arms full of bags from Harajuku and my 100Y umbrella flipped inside out like the movies.

Mark and I decided to go up to the Metropolitan Government Center to see what the city looked like in the snow. Uh, it looked like a big white nothing. The snow was so thick and windy 45 floors up that you could barely even see the other tower in the building. It was so cosy up there, though - like we were in a big cloud - and we ended up eating lunch at the cafe up there. Markie tried their curry & I had the spaghetti with a red sauce and miso.
Here are some photos from Nishi Shinjuku before we split up -- Markie went video game shopping in Nakano and I went to Harajuku, as you can see in the pictures from above.
