Japan was about as mad as I was expecting. Overwhelming, fascinating, ridiculous and beautiful. Second night there, outside Shinjuku station, a guy in a Godzilla outfit with a lightsaber, dancing to a deafening and incoherent saxophone. About sums it up. I want to go back as soon as possible. The camera shops in Shinjuku… sweet christ the camera shops…
I only realised when developing these photos that I hadn’t used my Yashica at night before, or for street photography. In Japan I did both! And it worked surprisingly well. Most shots were taken with either Lomography 400 or Fuji Pro 400H bought fresh at Yodobashi.
