Rainy Shinjuku

Perfect view of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. (Where Markie proposed!)

When we were in Japan this April, our hotel was in the skyscraper district in Shinjuku - the west side of the train station. I love Nishi-Shinjuku because it is a quiet different than the east side (which I love, too!). Our hotel was about a 10-15 minute walk to the station.

I really liked getting breakfast in the morning from a conbini - this particular morning was the perfect amount of rainy, fog, and cloudiness that made everything look dreamy. It was also pretty early in the morning when I was out and about (jetlag screws you up!) - so the town was just starting to get ready for the day. Most cutely - little kids walking to school with their rain gear. I made it a point to walk through the alleys off the main road, too.

Here are the photos that I took.

This cat was pretty much the best and crabbiest. Trill neko.


  1. Lovely pictures! I would love to go to Tokyo someday. Stopping by from SITS.

  2. Thanks! I would love to go back SOON!

  3. Its me, the other Madonna again (just posted below the Christmas post)
    I just got a bit curious, don't come across people with the same name every day. And it seems we even like most of the same things. I absolutely love Japan! And yes, food! And well ALL animals (also have a cat so love those too haha)
    We don't look at all the same tho, appearance-wise :O
