The Monster at Shinjuku, Nishi-Shinjuku Junction


In this article,I introduce “Monster” at Shinjuku.
But it is not Godzilla.
Godzilla is at east side of Shinjuku station,but this monster is at west side.

This is the artificial Monster.
Nearest station is Keio Shinsen Line Hatshudai station.
But it is possible to walk from Shinjuku station south entrance.It takes about 15 minutes on foot.
Here is located along Koshukaido street.
It appears all of sudden.

Here is Hatsudai crossing.
Nishi-Shinjuku Junction is located over it.It is a very complex structure.

Next to the Hatsudai crossing,there is Nishi-Sandoguchi crossing.
Here is not junction.But it is also complex highway crossing.I like here too.
It is very near.Maybe only 1 or 2 minutes from Hatsudai crossing on foot toward Shinjuku.
It is also located along Koshukaido street. So I recommend to go here at the same time.

There are many cool junctions in Japan.
Some photographers likes to take junction photos.
Japan is small country and many people and building is concentrated.
So highways became very complex structure.
If you come to Japan,it may good to try to take photos of junctions!
This is one of cool Japan.

Information
Here is outside,so tripod is OK.
I think junction is suit for wide angle lens.My photos are taken with 24mm.It is narrow.

Nearest station: Hatshudai station / Keio Shinsen Line or Shinjuku station south entrance(about 15 minutes on foot)
