Hanging around the streets of Shibuya.

I've been going to sleep really early these past few days, but I guess it's better that I get my recommended 8 hours of sleep by my nutritionist. Well, I called the tour guide and she said the tour doesn't start until the 20th. That means I have 2 more days to kick it in Tokyo and other parts of Japan. Started off the morning with a big breakfast, followed by a giant pile of laundry to do.

Around 8 AM, we took a bus to Keisei Narita Station and caught the train to Shibuya. Took about 2 hours or so plus a transfer to another station in order to get there. Once I got there, it was like nothing I'd ever seen in my life.

China was definitely not like this, and certainly none of the other European countries that I've visited were like that at all.

Taking the Shinkansen back to Narita station in Japan.
It was seriously shopping heaven. I went through a lot of boutiques and ate at two Japanese udon restaurants in the span of 4 hours.

After exploring this place, I took a short train ride to Harajuku to check out the infamous BAPE store. Stocked up on two BAPE shirts and a Billionaire Boys Club hat. Grand total= 13,050 yen. I thought it was a complete ripoff, but Nigo is a huge deal to me, so it justifies the spending. After that, we took the Narita Express back to the hotel, which took less than an hour. Since the ride was a lot more comfortable than the JR train, I fell asleep throughout the entire ride. After walking that much, my feet are exhausted. Feeling full of udon right now. Wonder how much of it I'm going to be eating for the next week or so. Will talk about the next day as soon as possible.
