Japan Trip 2009: The view

This is the view from our hotel balcony(!) during the day (click through for the full effect):

Shinjuku Day Panorama

And at night, the view I'm looking at right now as I type this - again, clickable:

Shinjuku Night Panorama

That's Shinjuku, which has turned out to be a great place to stay.

The funny thing about panoramas is that because you get the same effect as an extreme wide-angle lens, everything looks really far away. In fact, those tall buildings loom pretty large and are only about 500 feet away. These are full 180 degree panoramas.

I'm going to write more about our hotel a little bit later - it is a great place. Just don't really have time to do a full writeup now, but I'll get to it.

About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
