Theater shop, Shimbashi Enbujou
Hallway, Shimbashi Enbujou
takki.us has several photos of the theater.
I only had three days in Tokyo, really only two, as the first was taken up by Enbujou, and I tried to make the most of them. I was staying in Asakusa, which is a pleasant older district with a labyrinth of shopping alleys near the famous Kaminari-mon gate and Senso-ji temple. I spent a lot of time shopping in the Ginza!
But one of the things I like in Tokyo is looking at the interesting modern buildings. I found two I had not noticed before:
"warped" building, Ginza
"cage" building, Shinjuku
Finally, one of the charms of Tokyo, for me, is its parks. Some quite recent, like the pocket parks of Shinjuku, between the skyscrapers, or very old ones, like Hama Rikyu, which is between the Ginza and the harbor. This last is unique in having salt water in its ponds, which fluctuate with the tide.
