The view of Shinjuku twilight from the top of Takashimaya

Despite having gone countless times to the Takashimaya in Shinjuku, I have never really bothered to go to the top few floors because I thought there aren't anything there but restaurants. So when an acquaintance from Malaysia came and I was showing him around, we went up and I was surprised by what I saw.

There was a nice garden for people to take walks.

The view from the top is really nice.

After that I went back into the Takashimaya building and made my way downstairs.

We went past Kabuki-cho.

By then the moon had came out.

I saw a sad-faced girl standing by herself and wondered what was going on, so I took a photo of her from the distance. The others seemed to pass her by in a blur.
