Shinjuku

Aug 06 2007

Part five in an ongoing series, “Kabukichou from above”. [2002](http://context.metalbat.com/index.pl?760), [2003](http://context.metalbat.com/index.pl?905), [2005](http://context.metalbat.com/?1107), [2006](http://context.metalbat.com/?1150). I went to Tokyo in January to pick up Piroko and bring her back to the USA once and for all. I do believe that this marks the first day that I took a photo for this journal, posted to my [Vox blog](http://jetfuel.vox.com/library/post/cd-game-shopping-quest-2007.html), *and* recorded the day’s accomplishments in my [bouquet](http://www.baresquare.com/user/jetfuel). This day was my traditional one geeky day on the town that the lady allows me whenever I visit Tokyo. What used to be my routine, wandering Shinjuku and browsing the used game and CD stores, is now a rare ritual. Thanks to the internet, though, I feel more connected to the geeky Akihabara and Shinjuku culture than ever.
