Electric Lights, Electric City

It's been a while (think about Staind...THINK ABOUT THEM). But I am back, the Polaroids always get the shaft in my adventures, I usually sort through things Digital, Film, and Polaroids last. I decided to invert it this time and while there are still gigabytes of digital photos from both Iceland and Tokyo, I'm presenting Tokyo Polaroids before any of the others.
The neon lights lent themselves to great double exposures. Above, however, is a small, rather decrepit amusement park in central Tokyo. I saw it in Enter the Void and fell in love.

Paper cranes left at a shrine in Kyoto.
The monster known as Akihabra...aka Electric City. This is pretty much mecca for anyone interested in Anime, Manga, video games, or weird Japanese fetishes.
After just a few short hours here, I felt dirty. Like, really dirty. A pretty amazing amount of porn shops and maiden cafes coupled with an extremely unhealthy dose of consumerism and the future.
Louis Bourgeouis sculpture in Ropongi hills.
Kamakura double exposure, Buddha and the beach.
