Tokyo, Japan November 2007 : Shinjuku


While we were Tokyo, we stayed in the Shinjuku district which is also the red-light district. It was a great place to stay because there's lots going on during the day and at night. There are cheap restaurants everywhere, big department stores and then at night there is the fascinating Japanese sleaze culture. (well, you know what I mean...) Not to mention the enormous pachinko parlours and arcades.

Mr K-E could barely take the photograph below, he was laughing so hard. It's an innocent pachinko parlour, by the way.



There were services available for both men and women :) but I couldn't really understand the stuff on offer for women. Look at the guys below. That over-teased hair, those coy looks... they look like women!!




Apparently, these guys are not 'hos. You just pay them to keep you company in the clubs and pay you compliments all night. Yeah right! Hahahaha.....

i actually wouldn't mind having the job, minus the dragon ball hairdo tho! hahaha...

Yes, it's probably quite an easy job...apart from the 4 hours everyday doing your hair :)
