Shibuya,Tokyo Japan

16:16 Yannie 13 Comments

This was our last day at Tokyo city. We choose to go to the popular shopping and entertainment area found around Shibuya Station. Shibuya is one of Tokyo's most colourful and busy districts, packed with shopping, dining and nightclubs serving swarms of visitors that come to the district everyday.

I like this picture of us at Hachiko Statue. A statue of a loyal dog name Hachiko.  According to a famous story, the dog waited for his master every day in front of Shibuya Station, and continue to do so for years even after he master had passed away. It is one of Tokyo's most popular meeting points.

We grabbed a bread and baguette at Brasserie VIRON.  Brasserie VIRON is one of the best places in Shibuya if you are a huge "baguette" lover. It's most reasonable to go there for breakfast. The price is reasonable and it's range from JPY 600 to JPY1000.

My friend recommended me to visit Don Quijote, commonly known as Donki, is a discount chain in Japan with incredibly wide array of products. If you are looking for a gift, may be snacks, or simply want to explore new products, Donki definitely is worthy of a visit. The stores are usually more than 3 floors big, and the selection of products you can find is overwhelming. From snacks to clothes to cosmetic, you can pretty much find whatever you are looking for. Yannie could spend hours in here.
 
We had 桂花ラーメン (ramen again!). They were indeed delicious that I couldn't find this kind of tasty ramen when we are back to our homeland.

We took hundreds over of photos, silly poses with happy expressions at the prominent landmark of Shibuya, the large intersection in front of the station's Hachiko Exit. The intersection is heavily decorated by neon advertisement and giant video screens and gets flooded by pedestrians each time  the crossing light turns green, making it a popular photo and movie filming spot. I so love watching the scene LIVE.
 
April and May too never got tired of taking hundreds pictures with the Christmas decors that they found in Shibuya.

Coming up next.....my last post of my Tokyo visit, finally my shopping loots. Please stay tuned.

    1. yeah, the dog statue at the station, i was there to take a photo too.. and that place is indeed a very popular meeting place, Uncle SK saw many youngsters there and reminded him of his younger days, haha!! Uncle SK also stayed there to watch the busy traffic and hundreds of pedestrians crossing that huge junction.. this will never happen in Malaysia, we do not have that population..

    3. so happy for April and May that they found the Disney Store in Shibuya, else they must have regretted they were not able to get anything from Disney Land and Disney Sea.. the girls were super excited as can be seen from the photos.. YAM were not tired at all, but probably the poor cameraman JJ had to use his smile to cover up his tired face?? hehehe~~ :p
