Tokyo Day 3

So needless to say, day three got off to a rocky start (reference day two). So much was not cataloged for this day, but it was still fun. Just lower key, that and making fun of either my mom and/or I from my sister or both of them for my all night escapade. Anyway, we spent time walking around the Shibuya area that holds the Harajuku shopping area. This is the area where when you see all the youngsters with their hip colored hair and eccentric outfits, they hang here. Toy stores, Gift shops, clothing boutiques, up to high end Vuitton, Chanel and Dolce and Gabbana all lay on the same strip creating a tourist heyday. Definitely a stop for any trip to Tokyo whether you are shopping or just catching some local flavor.

Today was also the first time we attempted the subway on our own. It was not too pretty. The subway is jammed pack and since most of the signs are partly in English it is very easy to get lost. Oh, and we did get lost! But learning is a lot faster and more fun that way anyway.

Crazy add we saw in the subway. Have do idea what it is for, but it is funny nonetheless.

A small section of the Hello Kitty section in a 6 story toy store called "Kiddie Land" in the Harajuku district.

A common site in many restaurant's store front. Replicas of the food showing with prices. It helps when you don't know Japanese!

My dinner that night. Some curry and soba noodles, tempura shrimp and veggies and a nice cold Asahi.
