Street photography in Shinjuku

Shinjuku at peak hours (early morning and after six) is a very well organized chaos, an incredible number of people filling the streets and stores on the way to and after work. Surprisingly the streets are relatively empty in the hours in between.

Shinjuku street fashion has its distinct characteristics, like the other big areas in Tokyo, a mix between the elegant Ginza, and the hipster Shibuya. Perhaps due to the type of companies based in the area.

The kabukicho area is almost deserted before six, as it consist mostly of restaurant-bars, and after-hours recreational places.

The east exit area is the busiest, as there are many department stores along the Shinjuku Street.
