One of main road that connect Shibuya and Shinjuku.
Outer than JR Yamanote line and Meiji Dori (loop road 5)
Inner than loop road 7

Yamate Dori under Nakameguro Station (Tokyu Toyoko line)

Ah yes, the intricacies of Tokyo transportation... XD

Maybe, someday, if I ever go to Japan, I'll understand it. But until then, it'll just be a horribly intimidating enigma.

Speaking of the CD booklet I've always wondered whether anyone knew the relevance of the garbled English presentation in the Gibusu lyrics? It shows up in the PV too.

What's this? People don't like Tsuki ni Makeinu? That was always one of my favorite songs because it didn't end too soon. Lots of catchy songs end when you want them to keep going. This song just keeps on truckin', and I love every second of it. Cheers, Uki!

Thanks, Emilscherbe!! I guess you drive on Yamate-dori often... (Lucky!)

Justriiingo said she doesn't think it's a bad song, but I think she questions his taste level because he thinks that's her best song.

The Ringo Trivia Topic mentions the lyrics, but I think she just wrote them that way since it looked cool. o_o

Thank you badtz! I no longer think that song is that bad now after giving it a second chance a while back. It's really just the intro that I really don't like. It's so... "cute"? It gets on my nerves.

EDIT:
It's obvious that I'm leaning towards TJ phase 1, however, I am not one of those "I hate Uki because he looks like shit!" kind of person. My reasons for not liking him are almost purely musical. And I'm sure a lot of people here will agree. But whether I like it or not, Uki is in the band and unless he does a Hirama and decides to release a single and appear in his debut PV as a half-transvestite, he will be here to stay. If there's any indication, the recent Gunjo Biyori performance with not only one, but THREE Vox Phantoms on Uki, Shiina AND Izawa tells me that Uki will haunt TJ songs for life.

(I hope this doesn't start a Hirama/Uki flame war.)

I like Tsuki ni makeinu. I dont think its the best on the album, but of all he non-pvs, i think so probly. I find it weird Uki would like that song since it seems to be a song he'd be incapable of playing.

You need to STRUM!

In other news: please dont crap up the song by plucking through it, Uki

garbled English?
Do you mean:
don't U θink? i 罠 B wiθ U
In that case, the θ is phonetic writing of the "th" sound, and 罠 means trap/snare but most importantly is pronounced "wana". So actually, she's writing "I wana b with u".

Or maybe I totally misinterpreted your question?

I thought he was wondering why she wrote it that way but now that I re-read what he wrote, your answer makes better sense. (I think... o_o;;)

Yamate-dori is most important for being a road in Shinjuku, and since her early solo career was all about being "Shinjuku-kei" and some allusions to living in Shinjuku (I don't know if she actually did though) thats why she used its signs all over the booklet.
