was Japan's first skyscraper district and Shinjuku Station is
reportedly the busiest train station in the country, but Shinjuku is
also home to Shinjuku Gyoen Park and dramatic skies. It's a
good thing for mega-city dwellers that on windy days they can
occasionally look up and see timeless beauty.
Skyscraper... is a word I should retire, but then what? "High-rise District"? Or "District of High Rises"? Didn't like those, so I went with "skyscraper", a term I don't mind hearing... until I start thinking about what a ridiculous term it is that is!
