I was initially going to combine day 3 and 4 of this trip into this post but as I was adding pictures I realized that it would be way too long. So this post consists of what I saw and where I went on my third day of the Tokyo trip. Funny enough it includes zero food pictures. I guess it’s because I was so hungry by the time the foods came out that I just ate without thinking to snap a picture of them. I spent the majority of the day in the Shibuya area. When we were planning for this day, we planned to go to Daikanyama and Ebisu but as the day went on we realized that we didn’t have enough time to actually visit there. I guess I’ll have to visit those areas on my next trip.
This day consisted of shopping, eating, and visiting cafes, which are all things that I love to do. For some people it might be weird to have cafes on places to visit when you’re visiting a different country. For someone who really enjoys cafe hopping and trying different coffees, I thought it was completely reasonable to experience another city’s coffee culture. Interestingly enough, they were quite different from the ones that they have in Seoul. For one, the Americanos are much much much stronger and they don’t let you sit down for a long time, the workers came to me and my sister many many times and told us to leave. Instead of doing really touristy things, I like to explore the neighbourhood/city as if I lived there, and I feel like visiting cafes and such is a part of that.
I also saw and experienced the Shibuya Crossing this day. Walking across the intersection was possibly the most hectic thing I’ve ever experienced. There were so many people coming in all different directions and trying to not walk into any of them was such a mission. I would hate to do that everything single day. After that, we headed up to the infamous Starbucks located at the intersection to see the view that is so highly talked about. I understand why people say it’s the best place to view the intersection at. You get the complete view of the entire intersection and it’s just fun to watch people and cars crossing every couple minutes.
After all that we explored more of Shibuya and headed back to our airbnb to give our poor legs some rest.
