Walking home from Yoyogi-Koen Eki

Visited the Nikka Blender's Bar just south and east of the busy heart of Omotesando. I'm not a whiskey drinker but the bar had a great old world whiskey oasis vibe. They had a little "shrine" of memorabilia dedicated to their founder Masataka Taketsuru and his wife Rita Cowan, the founders of Japan's whisky industry.

We tried the aged sampler that included 6-different 12-year old whiskeys with the intention of blending to taste. It was a unique first time experience for me, and definitely an interesting and slightly inebriating experience. Seems like a great place to go if you need to impress a whisky aficionado.

Anway, the photo this evening was taken on the way home from Yoyogi Station. The street was eerily lit by a glowing orange sky over the DoCoMo Tower with yellow, green and purple street level lights.
