Tokyo, Japan: Coloured Urban Jungle of Shinjuku at Night


Skycrapers at the back of the small buildings.

Shinjuku is the administrative centre for the government of Tokyo. It is a popular business and commercial district with many tall skycrapers. Many large Japanese multinational companies have their headquarters here.

The Shinjuku Train Station for example handles 3.64 million passengers each day making it the most busiest station in the whole wide world.

Enjoy the pictures!


Neon signboards everywhere.


More colourful neon lights.


Confession time: I am not fond of kararoke. Well erase that, I hate it. We were probably the only family in the Philippines that did not have a karaoke. No one really wanted to sing. 


Red and yellow are popular colours. They are warm and gets your attention. I have no idea what these are really.


Entrance to a traditional eatery.


The girly section of Shinjuku.


Serenading for you. Please come in!


The city comes to life in the evening with a sea of colours.

Photo Essay of Gaios Town in Paxos Island (Greece)


The capital of Paxos Island (Greece) is Gaois. It is a pretty town with a busy harbour (when there are boats anchored on day trips) lined with cafe terraces, shops and restaurants.

The island is small so its best to stay here for just a few days unless your idea of holiday is going slow, less sightseeing and not doing much. A day trip is just as perfect.

We were here last year and I took a lot of pictures! Here are my other posts of Paxos Island:


Where Paxos Island is on the map:



The little island is just below Corfu and quite near to mainland Greece.


Windows, doors, sunshine, flower pots and laundry.


A wine cellar and warehouse.


The main square of Gaios is filled with outdoor cafe terraces.


The Church of Analipsi on the main square of Gaios town.


Side shopping streets, lots of shops, outdoor cafe terraces and restaurants.


The pirate's taverna.


Gaios has still many Venetian style houses.


Streetside cafe terraces facing the water.


The statue of Georgios Anemogiannis on the port of Gaios. He fought to free Greece from the Turks.


The port of Gaios is formed like a horse shoe. This picture is taken from the other side of the harbour.


 A very inviting private outdoor terrace.


Goodbye Paxos!
