For many of us, when we say Shinjuku, these skyscrapers come to mind.
This is the business district, located on the west side of Shinjuku Station, where many people go to work everyday. It's a view I've come to love and on a sunny day like this I always end up taking photos of the skyscrapers, even though I know I have hundreds of the same angle.
I actually saw these skyscrapers after the first earthquake hit on March 11 and they were all weaving back and forth. Now this may seem scary (no doubt it was for the people who work there) but it is actually intentional, a way to alleviate the shock through flexibility.
My building sways as well and for the past week it has felt like we're all working on a boat with all the new earthquakes and aftershocks. But I know that I'm safe and it makes me very proud of our engineers and the well constructed buildings. No doubt the strict building codes saved many lives for the people of Japan.
