This time, it wasn't raining, and I took lots of pictures.

I was surprised to learn that Shinjuku is an area not just for the rich. It has some very affordable places and people in their 20s from all types of economic classes go there. We ended our day at Shinjuku by going into a department store. Department stores at Shinjuku are typically very expensive. We ended up going to the basement floor which comprised of the restaurants and food shops (known as depachika in Japanese), and sampling food that we had no intentions of buying.
