Shibuya Soul 7

You step outside into the dark Night.The Air is clear and fresh,you can almost smell the Snow.Flickering Neon Signs shimmer on the wet Asphalt.Through the closed Door you still can hear the warm & ingratiating Sounds of the Music.For a moment you keep completly still,feel the comfert of solitude.Free at last.The Night is yours.
