Tokyo: Shibuya to Harajuku Street Scenes

These are pictures during our walk from Shibuya Station to the Harajuku area.

We got lost actually and we were going around in circles. It just takes 20 minutes walk from Shibuya Station to the Harajuku area but I think it took us almost an hour! I was not feeling well as I was sick but what can you do? We could have taken a cab but walking (strolling pace) was also fine. So I just took pictures along the way =)

We passed by the famous Takeshita Street and had some late lunch in one of the areas in Harajuku, just across Takeshita.

We actually wanted to spot some of the cosplay kids (costume play attires), as well as the lolita's (girls dressing up like lolita's) but it wasn't a very good day as we didn't see much of them. This is one of the things I would like to see when I return to Japan.

This is the area of Shibuya:

We did not walk that straight line. We went in circles! Which took us almost an hour. Nevertheless, we have seen a lot.

The famous Shibuya Crossing. Vehicular traffic from all sides stop when pedestrians cross.

This chinky snow white girl is promoting eyelid surgery which is very popular in the chinky-eyed Asian countries. I just do not understand why she has to dress up in a snow white costume.

These ceramic pots outside a restaurant (I guess) had me wondering what they are all about.

I sometimes have this feeling that it looks the same everywhere in Tokyo.

I have to take off my face mask for this photo shoot =). If you exhibit coughing in public, you must wear a face mask because the looks of everyone else, especially in the metro, can kill!

We saw this disoriented lady who sat on a corner street. I knew right away that something is wrong with her. Within seconds, the ambulance arrived and they took her in a stretcher. She must have felt an attack coming.

Biking in Tokyo is quite popular.

Must be one of the girl bands which they call J-pop bands. This trend is big in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia.

Nice building of the Harajuku Metro. 

We wanted to eat at this tiny restaurant in Harajuku but they only accept cash and we want to pay with the card because we were low with Yen.
