Trying to cover what I hadn’t yet, I went to Shibuya. I had been there before briefly and went with Liviu to the top of a hotel in order to take pictures of the busiest crossroads ever. You know, the one in Lost in translation. It really is incredibly busy.
I’m usually pretty good at finding my way in strange places, but Tokyo killed me. I just couldn’t find anything. So, when I intended to go from Shibuya to Omotesando on foot, the guy at the tourist office said: Don’t do it! You will get lost! I wouldn’t do this! Needless to say, I did it. I didn’t get lost as it was more or less a straight street taking me there, but I totally see why he wasn’t encouraging me: Tokyo is very easy to get lost in!
When I arrived in Omotesando, I just went back to Cat Street (second favorite place) and walked around as each street had so much to show: traditional houses next to hi-tech showrooms, cat cafes next to the Comme des Garcons store, an amazing crazy gallery next to a very popular restaurant. And the kids were wearing incredible outfits, like nothing I’ve ever seen before!
