It is an area of designer shops and department stores.And very well-dressed Tokyo-ites are there to spend up big. The world's biggest Louis Vuitton store is here. We had a drink at a posh coffee shop and the prices were a bit of a shock 900 Yen for a coffee.
AFter that we did a bit of shopping.
We kept strolling down the street towards Harajuku. There was a band belting out some tunes and some typical 'Harajuku girls'.
Andrew and Noriko then went home and Cameron and I caught the train to Shinjuku. This is the most vigerous part of Tokyo and there were absolutely swarms of people. This is where there are the huge lit up billboards, big video screens that bombard you with messages. The quintessential Tokyo.
We waded through the crowds and passed some very exclusive shops. Cameron with his radar spotted a bookshop in the distance. I was massive - 7 floors high crammed with books. Most of them were in Japanese though... but there was a small foreign language section.
After that we found a little noodle shop and had dinner then returned home to Sangenjaya.
