there's nothing to it.

Today I made my way to the imperial palace to have a peek at, well, a lot of shrubbery. Unfortunately the palace itself is only open twice a year, and not during my stay. It's hard to tell if the place was impressive, as I only managed to scan the perimeter and saw nothing of it really. However, being a palace and all, I'm sure it's tops.
After a couple of hours scuffing gravel and scanning hedges I wondered into Ginza, the top end fashion label boutique area, with many expensive stores and some very odd-looking buildings.
Case in point. Awesome.
I'm continuously delighted by the Japanese sense of aesthetics. Damn they have style! Everything is saturated in colour and neon and crazy design, or minimal geometric or natural motifs. I've never been happier to just stare at stuff. Advertisements, vending machines, shop facades, everything. And the people, so many beautiful people and different faces to watch. My visual faculties have never been so stimulated. Time to eat.
