I was told that Shinjuku is probably the most dangerous place in Tokyo. why? well, it has a lot of foreigners here, so you’d have to beware of pick pockets (but this is NOTHING compared to many other cities) and… well.. read on and you’ll know. haha.
Shinjuku’s road. the Shinjuku-Eki (station) is no doubt VERY HUGE, but never hesitate to ASK around to get to the place you want to =).
so before I go into the what I felt is a total culture shock to me, I’d like to tell you about the most delicious doughnut I’ve ever had. BETTER THAN JCo. it’s true.
look at the adorable paperbag! <3.
and it is called.. MISTER DONUT!!
it looks a little like McD to me. haha.
the varieties of donuts. it’s so good. SO GOOD.
those ring ones are the BEST indeed! it’s so chewy. you’ll have to taste it to know. <3. best of all is, it isn’t too sweet. just right imo. I can have 10 of these, really.
and the teddy bear donut. nyam~♡.
actually, I ate the ears. HAHAHA. this picture is taken in the jail-like cafe. will blog about it soon.
the variety of PILLOWS. want to sleep on somebody’s ass? get one of these.
super cute capes! if I wear them here people will give me “the stare”. in Japan? nobody will even look!
look at what they did to Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck @_______@. ASS PILLOWS FTW!!!
and that stall is placed in a street like this.
okay now the fun part. have you ever heard of the Kabuki-cho?? before I went to Japan, a friend of mine told me that this is a place I HAVE to visit. he did not tell me why. and later, I found out.. it’s a famous red light district.
I wouldn’t call it a tourist spot, but I have to say, this is somewhere you must come to “widen up” your eyes. massive culture shock.
so.. what is? nope not this. I just took a picture of this sign because it is cute HAHHAHA.
the street of Kabuki-cho. looks normal ey?
they have quite a number of famous food stalls. and that is a not-very-cute pig in a cape.
so here goes the culture shock.
TADA!! ONE WHOLE BUILDING OF POSTERS. what are these? posters for some japanese boy bands?
well, look again.
these guys with “fahrenheit hair” (if you watch Mingjai14’s videos hahah) are.. hosts. they are the male version of call-girls I guess? you pay them to drink with you. if you could see, it said 3,000YEN for 2 hours. HAHAHA.
I bet you noticed that they look.. weird. just weird. well, quite a big number of Japanese guys actually shape their eyebrows. it is TRUE. you can see baldies in their school uniforms with super thick eyebrows shaped into one fine CURVED line. I mean, VERY CURVED LINE. and it is a form of being clean cut.
seriously, it’s like a Super Junior poster. wth.
previously I’ve watched some travel show about rich females in Japan who do not want to be tied up in a relationship, they’d spend thousands of dollars just to get these “call guys” to drink with them. it’s like a relationship with no strings for them. HAHAHA. super awesome.
and if there are males, of course there are females. but then it is very funny, I think I saw more male posters compared to female posters. hmm?
but my goodness, prostitution here is so open it’s like a legal business there. I mean, it IS legal. there are cinema’s with posters outside literally showing naked girls T_T. it’s amazing. that is why the rape cases in Japan are super low. (don’t think I should post any pictures here later I get barred from blogging from the Malaysian gov D=)
I dunno what shops are these. even middle aged couples goes in there.
and below it is said only people aged 18 and above could enter. really, WHAT ARE THESE? D=.
for some reasons, I am thinking they are love motels pfft. hmm. like, a fully equipped love motel. *faints*.
oh right, just so you know, the well groomed quite not bad looking guys with BLACK SUITCASES wearing black suits as well are usually ducks. most of them have madly bleached hair. styled. I dare not go near them to take pictures. T_T. they’d approach you if you’re alone or when your group have no men.
ah– blue lights on trees, so pretty.
though it might sound a little dodgy but it isn’t! really! so if you’re planning to go to Shinjuku, do drop by here! just make sure you don’t go there drunk. ;).
