Japan Tokyo Harajuku Shibuya

19 November 2019

Double juku buya

Strolling from Shinjuku to Harajuku to Shibuya

2nd to last night in Japan on this trip, I had no plan. I headed south from Shinjuku, went through Harajuku and ended up in Shibuya. It was not Halloween in Shibuya, but something else was on there, I have no idea what, but a line was looping around the block 3 times.

This is only a short walk, 30 minutes, and you can basically follow one road all the way there. Thats what I did anyway.

Now for some urinal discussion. Apparently in Japan its ok to take your girlfriend with you to the urinal while video conferencing each other, set her down on the shelf in front of the urinal, and keep chatting to her while you urinate. Then you pick her up again and leave without washing your hands. I have seen this happen at least 3 times on this trip. It seems like it would possibly be an arrestable offence in other countries, especially if a girl trotted into the ladies toilets with a guy watching via video conference.

Tomorrow will be the final hike of this trip, on my last day. The weather should be good. As I have alluded to earlier, I have planned a shorter hike, a little closer to town. Almost no chance of running into a bear. This will leave me time tomorrow afternoon to clean my shoes and wipe my electronic devices so that I am not detained by Australian customs on my return.

Right by my hotel, food stalls have set up in the street. Mainly serving octopus balls and twisted potato on a stick. The idea of standing and eating in the street never appeals to me.

Japan-Tokyo-Harajuku-Shibuya - Some people will already know, but you will never see the name Samsung in Japan. All the phones are only branded Galaxy. Here is the Galaxy shop.

Japan-Tokyo-Harajuku-Shibuya - I think this was a live radio broadcast. It is all men pressed against the glass. The glass also has a big no photo sign. I took a photo.

Japan-Tokyo-Harajuku-Shibuya - I did not take a shot of 'the crossing', so here is a non the crossing photo of Shibuya. It is a different crossing from the crossing.

There was some sort of event occurring that required people to line up around the entire block of the Parco store. The picture does not really capture it, but there were at least a thousand people in a line for something. The only thing advertised on the windows was an Akira drawing art gallery, but that was not due to open until the weekend.


Japan-Tokyo-Harajuku-Shibuya - Another shot of the Shibuya streets. It is not Halloween, but look closely and you can see a bald Hare Krishna posing for photos with her ass hanging

Japan-Tokyo-Harajuku-Shibuya - OH BOY, MORE RAMEN! Tonights ramen was not red or spicy. To make up for the lack of chilli I got the combo with gyoza. I just throw these into the sou

OH BOY, MORE RAMEN! Tonights ramen was not red or spicy. To make up for the lack of chilli I got the combo with gyoza. I just throw these into the soup. It is probably bad etiquette to do that.

Last pic tonight, going past the robot cafe disco mardis gras whatever it is restaurant thing. It is the brightest lights in town, not really conveyed well in this photo. It can be seen from space.
