since i'm finished with my jogja entries,
i'll start again and this time, really try to finish all my tokyo stories :P
back to writing in english ya.
i find that writing in malay is more sempoi
but i need to practise my english too :D
so, shibuya crossing.
it's a world famous crossing, millions of people cross it everyday.
it's such a mad, organized rushing and scrambling of people.
i've never experienced anything like it.
anyway, i've been obsessed with the crossing for years.
i don't know when exactly i came to know about the place,
but i've always had this thing about road crossings.
shibuya is the dream.
|hachiko statue at hachiko square.|
sad, sad story of a loyal dog. sobs
|hard to take a decent picture since many people were around|
|hachiko square. this has become like the meeting spot for people.|
also many people hanging out here.
look at that late sakura/ume!
shibuya crossing has so many metro exits,
i could get off of one and forget how to go back there again :P
but tokyo's metro line is so extensive, so awesome.
if you can read japanese you'll never get lost. unlike me though.. hahaha.
|ohmaigod.. i am just so in love with this place|
if i counted correctly,
there's actually seven zebra crossings here.
i basically ran around each of the crossings
and just laughing out loud,
enjoying being part of the crowd.
|while waiting to cross.. first, lemme take a selfie!|
right across the street is hachiko square
|in starbucks. had to fight for a place. don't think it's got the best view of the crossings though.|
|met japanese ladies who were interviewing international visitors|
|shibuya at night! so meriah, even until late|
|don't quite understand their concept of department stores.|
tried to get up to the upper floors but got so confused instead
|more hachiko mementos|
|the famous starbucks|
price is much higher compared to home, but still i went like 4, 5 times.. haha adeh
|the big flashy advertisements. feels like i'm in new york or something|
|mario karts people! they were driving around shibuya crossing, dunno what's the occasion|
|in japan they have smoking boxes - you only smoke here, not anywhere you want.|
don't think it made a difference, the smoke goes into the same air that we breathe anyway
in case you haven't noticed..
i actually went to shibuya crossings multiple times.
5 times, in fact. ahaha.
it's also the last place i went to before boarding the train to the airport.
just soaking in the atmosphere, wondering when i'll set foot here again.. :'(
|the place that's got the better view. l'occitane cafe, shibuya|
|the expensive but heavenly creme brulee.|
not joking folks, this is THE creme brulee that you MUST try
|perfectly caramelized sugar on the top, yummy silky base, and that sour raspberries|
contrasting awesomely with the sweetness of the dessert. 850 yen, roughly RM35. so worth it.
|best. lunch. ever.|
|got people taking wedding pics at the crossing some more.|
|interior deco of l'occitane cafe|
|waiting to cross, again. took so many videos lol|
|the l'occitane cafe. quite easy to spot.|
downstairs is where they sell those lotions, hand creams.
where you'd want to go is the second or third floor.
|last day. last pic. before boarding the train that will take me home.|
adieu shibuya crossing, it's been great fun.
i'll forever be in love with you <3
