Shinjuku at night – Colour Palette

After a ten days holiday in Tokyo which ended up a visual feast.  I took hundreds of photos with my iPhone. The colour within this photo is vivid and I was interested what type of colour palette I was able to extract from it. The photo is the front door of the Robot Restaurant at Kabuki-cho in Shinjuku, the business and entertainment district in Tokyo. The fast-paced Shinjuku district with its skyscrapers and towers can come as a bit of a shock.  The Robot Restaurant is a popular spot for tourist combining food, drink and performance.  Asia’s many and varied theme restaurants were quick to recognise dining is more than what you put in your mouth.

I call this colour swatch Shinjuku.
