Tokyo is an amazingly dense city comprised of a complex system of buildings, roads, and rail, but what really boggles the mind are the veins and arteries underneath the city. I have no idea how the Japanese engineers have managed to keep the towering building from succumbing to earthquakes while practically every square inch of Tokyo has been hallowed out underground. Here is a small glimps into one of the pores of Shinjuku. Yes, I happened to be doing  lines at the time.

    Its the light here that gets me…the strange brown/gray. The whole thing is a treat for the eyes.

    Just trying to figure out where in Shinjuku it is, though..?

    Thanks to both of you!

    This was located right at the base of the Cocoon Building I think it is called. The one that looks like a skyscraper with lattice pasted all over it.
