Shinjuku after the rain

Shinjuku is one of the busiest areas in Tokyo. I was in the area just after a small rain, and was pleasantly surprised on how few people were on the street.

Tokyo is not so busy these days due to the Obon season, when people go back to their hometown to honor the departed spirits of their ancestors.

Also is striking how the buildings, billboards and signs are now modestly illuminated due to energy saving measures.
