Japan Tokyo Ginza Shopping Street

8 November 2016

So shiny

Before I go on, there appears to be a show on tv where they place a random cat inside a shed full of chickens and hidden cameras and then film what happens.
Cat number one paced around very slowly looking concerned.
Cat number two panicked and ran in every direction at full speed.
Cat number three sat in the middle of the shed very very still and waited....and when a chicken came close by, he smacked that chicken good.
I found it mildly interesting that the chickens did not seem to mind the cat being in the shed with them, perhaps proving that chickens are stupider than cats.
Animals were harmed in the making of this show.

Now onto the shiny, Ginza. Ginza is super shiny, and clean, and polished, and everything glows and has a shine to it.
Maybe its the fanciest shopping street in the world? To call it a street is to do it a great disservice, cause as I found last time, theres a few areas that make up Ginza.
The area around Yurakucho station has a lot of big shops, underground food streets, and an outdoor market.
It is also the place in Tokyo you to to look at other people, such as Russians, buying 10 handbags each. But there are also good shops for regular people, I went to one such shop tonight and bought lots of things, none of them for me of course, all I need is camo pants, a long sleeve t-shirt and an angry face.

Finally, its raining now, which meant I had to engage umbrella eye defence, hard when carrying shopping in the rain. I hope it stops by the morning, I have plans.

This vertical store in the middle is Itoya, and is a stationery store. Actually its part of it, theres another building behind this one.
If you like stationery, go here. There were many western girls in here struggling to hide their pure joy. Also I was there looking mad as hell.

And another dedicated to pencils. Not pictured is pen level, fountain pen level, paper level etc. Also it has 2 cafes so you can take a break from looking at stationery and try to calm the hell down.

A shiny new Nissan concept car. Like all concept cars, the rear doors open backwards. This never lasts through to the production vehicle because that pillar between the front and back doors is important for the strength of the car.


Japan-Tokyo-Ginza-Shopping Street - Heres a slightly updated version of the now ancient Nissan GTR. They really need to release a new car more than once every 10 years.
