18.3.2009 :: Tokyo :: Day 4

I scrapped the idea of going to Fuji-san today and went to Tokyo instead. The station there is absolutely crazy! Instead of walking around Tokyo I hopped a top side train and headed to Shibuya, more specifically a street called Takeshita Dori. It's a place to get unique items and clothing. I saw a jacket I will buy the next time I am in Tokyo.

I saw some interesting characters there today but didn't take any pictures. The only thing I have to show for today is a green bagel and a better working knowledge of the Tokyo station, which is a chore in itself.

Tokyo kicked my butt today...


Be sure to check out my new travel blog about Japan, Tokyo, Kyoto, food, wine and Japanese culture!


  1. Oh man, that sounds amazing! Trust me, I'm right there with you on the language barrier issue. Germany was the same way.

    So, do you think you'll make the move? You certainly don't seem to have anything bad to say about Japan yet!

  2. I can't believe it took me forever to find your blog. Sometimes I wish I was sixteen so I wouldn't be so internet stupid. Sounds like things are good so far. I can only imagine the chaos in Tokyo.
