After part one’s dancing in the golden gai , we headed out in the bright lights of Shinjuku and then Harajuku for some more nighttime adventures. It was time for the robot restaurant in Kabukicho! I hadn’t actually been there myself but our couple know Shinjuku so off we went for some more post-wedding photos.
Outside the entrance to the robot restaurant in Kabukicho, Shinjuku are two pink and blue robot chairs. They hopped up and had some robot fun. I even managed to find an electric sakura (cherry tree blossom) angle – perfect as the sakura season had just finished.
Not sure how we found this temple and park in Kabukicho but we stumbled upon it. A fantastic white dragon was the perfect match for our arty couple.
A lone bride. Not a runaway groom – he had just forgot to charge up his suica travel card so couldn’t get through the gates at Shinjuku station. There are usually so many people rushing through the stations in Tokyo that even a bride in a wedding dress doesn’t attract much attention. As long as we don’t spend too much time in one spot or get in the way of the flow of people photographing on the train system in Tokyo is not a problem.
Our couple reunited! This time on the platform of the Shibuya Station.
The scramble crossing at Shibuya for some post-wedding photos.
Photographing on the backstreets of Shibuya. And then it was onto the train again to Harajuku. Actually, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Harajuku in one night was probably a bit much! I’d recommend up to 2 of those 3.
Harajuku pink! Most of the shops in Harajuku were closed but even the shop fronts and shutters make a great backdrop. Even better than in the daytime perhaps as there are less people, and more lights!
