When you step in the taxi the meter starts at 900 yen. I hope you are on an expense count! If not you might want to remember the trains stop running about midnight. If you want to stay out all night which is actually great fun in Tokyo the trains start again at 5 or 5 30.

Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you.
I will go back during the day and hopefully get some great shots. For now imagine a moment of silence in a very busy world. And a temple that is more than simply a tourist destination with another chance to buy a cellphone strap.
The Japanese love noodles, curry and in Tokyo especially experimenting with food. So in that spirit I share this New York Times article with you. Enjoy.
Life is hard. Tell someone you care about you love them. The economy is going to get worse before it gets better say all the experts. Maybe it will stay bad for years, we just don't know. We still have each and that's a lot.
A half block from the station was the Love sculpture that is a few posts below. Wondering around as my fingers started to tingle from the cold there weren't many streets lights I decided to give my overly enthusiastic flash some time to shine. Trying to take the trees with the flash was somewhat boring at this particular area. For some reason I am fascinated with getting the trees and the buildings together. Maybe this is because I took some pictures that way in Nagoya and thought they were cool. Everyday taking pictures I am looking for something cool. Given the number of pictures I take most people could get a good classic shot. I want more. Always more. So if you ever run into me taking pictures the chances are good I will be muttering to myself and spinning my camera. Probably singing too but hopefully you won't have to hear that! Can someone please get Elton John singing about Daniel out of my head please?
Anyway, I was singing about Daniel and leaning my head all the way back into a bush as I took pictures of this building through the tree. I took a great deal of these types of pictures and most of them were crap. It was not a big surprise that my little flash did not light up a skyscraper. For my purposes I was happy that it lighted up the tree enough that you could still see some of the building. Yes, I did have to cheat a bit and touch up the lighting a bit. That is why you get that annoying green tint. So I won't win any contests with this picture. I like it and I wanted to share it with you my loyal followers. And no, I don't want to spin it around! My neck paid the price for me to get this picture exactly the way I wanted it.
After this picture I realized having my hair deep in the bushes while my fingers were freezing was not the best idea. So I found a pleasant Internet cafe with free DVD's and watched a movie.
Peace to all,
I love U2 (minus that last album, ugh) and am excited about the new album.
