The most wretched den of scum and villainy in tokyo.

And that's why I keep going back to Kabukicho. 

They are trying to Gentrify it.

But the grime is too thick, and the lure of flesh, too strong.

It's become safer but I don't think it could ever truly be a safe-space.

And in a city that's actively trying to kill of everywhere that is remotely fun. 

And replacing it with corporate friendly, entertainments for the boring, mainstream masses.  

It's the scummy corners like Kabukicho that will be the last refuge for proper fun, in central Tokyo.
