Japan Tokyo Harajuku Shibuya

6 November 2015

Not much has changed

Every time I come to Tokyo, I go to Shibuya and Harajuku, everyone does. It is surprising how little has changed since my last visit whenever that was.
I remember at least one previous visit it was bucketing down with rain, not this time. Instead I cant believe how hot it is, still 20C at 8pm, by which time its been dark for 4 hours.
It actually snowed in Beijing today by comparison.
If one thing has changed, there are not as many freaks hanging around, I think they have been scared off by the hordes of tourists, but where have they gone? I refuse to believe they grew up and forgot to dress like baby zombies.
Despite the somewhat awesome weather, I didnt find it to be particularly busy, I could have got a seat at the starbucks window overlocking the crossing if I so wanted. Of course non busy is all relative, when discussing the busiest pedestrian crossing in the world.

Trucks still constantly cirlce advertising bands, products, pop stars, often followed by a protest van which is a guy with loud speakers on his roof screaming his lungs out about something.

I had to make sure I wasnt seeing things. I eat here in Sydney / Melbourne / Brisbane at least once a week as its the cheapest place in town that sells something passably healthy. Now they have a Tokyo store, in a very prominent location.

I stopped for a while to watch some people on the radio who I did not recognise. No one else did either, passers by stopped and quizzed each other, shrugged their shoulders and moved on.
