Glass buildings in Nishi-Shinjuku with reflections of the surrounding buildings

Strolling around Nishi-Shinjuku 6-chome, which I had never been to before, I had a strange feeling that I was walking in a town I knew and a town I did not know. A wide street with street trees stretched out like a core between glass-walled skyscrapers, and the streets with narrow roads growing out of them like branches and leaves gave off an artificial scent. It's a cityscape that makes you feel as if you've seen it somewhere before, but also as if you've never seen it before. This must be what it means to be truly immersed in individuality.

The two buildings that stood along the street I was walking along had similar glass walls and similar exteriors, even though they were owned by different companies. The walls of the buildings looked so similar that I thought they were the same building just by looking at them for a moment, and the reflection of the surrounding buildings on the walls looked like a giant house of mirrors in an amusement park. Although it had nothing to do with me walking on the ground, I was worried that the birds flapping in the sky would be affected visually in the same way that humans are when they enter a house of mirrors.
