Shibuya is a special ward in Tokyo, Japan. It is a major commercial and finance center and houses two of the busiest railway stations in the world, Shinjuku station (southern half) and Shibuya Station. The population of this area is 221,801.
This area around Shibuya station is known as one of the fashion centers of Japan, particularly for young people, and as a major nightlife area.
The walk was not long, but we took our time and saw so much along the way.
Shops and tall shiny buildings. The middle 2 slides here are of an advertising gimmick where it looks like the man is hanging by his arm from the face of building.
Aoyama Kumano Shrine Festival held in late September in Shibuya. Participants carry portable shrines (Mikoshi) along a fixed route. It looks like they have a fabulous time.
Shingo treated us to an Okonomiyaki self cooked lunch. It was delicious.
After our lunch, we wended our way back to Harajuku and our next stop at Meiji-jingu (separate post).
