"Deserted subway tunnels under..." Shinjuku Tip by sjvessey

Shinjuku, Tokyo: 10 reviews and 13 photos


<font face='papyrus' color=#A00000 size=+1><b>D</b></font>eserted subway tunnels under the skyscrapers at Nishi-Shinjuku. Absolutely lifeless, yet in the daytime swarming with thousands of people on their way to work. This photo was taken literally 5 minutes before the whole place was sealed off for the night with big steel shutters... and guess who almost got shut in for the night as a result?!? Fortunately the PA announces the doors are closing in English, as well as in Japanese...
