I don’t think you can claim to have visited Tokyo if you haven’t at least visited Takeshitadoori and joining the throngs of pedestrians at the famed Shibuya crossing. So we did just that, it being Ruru’s first time in Japan and all. But first, we paid a little visit to Meiji Shrine – the onset of spring was quite pretty:
I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for an outfit shoot when we wandered into a quieter part of the shrine:
We eventually emerged from the other exit of Meiji Shrine and walked a short distance to my favourite shopping street Takeshitadoori.
Got to have ourselves a Marion Crepe! I enjoyed my Harajuku-exclusive Matcha Chocolate for ¥530 (SGD $7).
Time went on, and we found ourselves past the crowded touristy street and into hipster-dom and all its colourful glory:
We finally extricated ourselves from all the shopping to find Hachiko in Shibuya:
And we took turns waiting for the lights to turn so that we could get our shot at the crossing!
It was fun.
