My Canadian friend Christine (who I have been mates with since our time working together at N*va a couple of years back) came back to Tokyo recently as she missed her Japanese boyfriend. Proof that it’s not just the guys who are fixated on the Japanese. I met up with her in Shinjuku yesterday for the first time in a few months and with nothing much to do we went to the Metropolitan Government offices which are two towering blocks on the west side in the skyscraper district.
For the very reasonable price of b*gger all, we went up to the 45th floors of each tower to see a view which is not beautiful but nonethesless makes interesting viewing as the concrete jungle stretches as far into the distance as the eye can see with very little in the way of greenery. A true urban city!
