I've come away on holiday for two weeks to visit Tokyo and Kyoto. We arrived last Saturday and spent the first part of the trip in Tokyo and now we're in Kyoto, then back again to spend some more time in the capital.
This place is insanely amazing. Walking round Shinjuku on the first night was exactly what you've seen on the movies, crazy flashing lights in all kinds of rainbow colours, people everywhere - but not too rowdy, and tonnes and tonnes of tiny hidden away bars and restaurants.
We soon discovered that what it's like in Shinjuku is not how it is all over town and began to explore.
Here are some piccies of our travels so far.
