[Day 2] Springtime in Tokyo: Shibuya

There’s always a reason why you should go back to Shibuya. Hachiko Statue, the busiest pedestrian crossing in the world, shopping and dining.

How to get there:
Shibuya Station, Hachiko Exit.
One of Tokyo’s busiest station since it consist of 11 Lines namely JR Yamanote Line, JR Saikyo Line, JR Shonan Shinjuku Line, Hanzomon Subway Line, Ginza Subway Line, Fukutoshin Subway Line, Tokyu Toyoko Line, Tokyu Den-Entoshi Line, Keio Inokashira and the Narita Express


I’m sure most of us already know and watched the story of Hachiko. A loyal dog knows for waiting perseveringly for the return of his dead owner for over 9 years. Don’t worry Hachi, we will come back to see you every time we visit Tokyo.



Exit named after him, located just outside Shibuya Station where he waited. Hachiko statue is popular to tourist so wait for your turn before taking a picture. Though expect a photo bomber since this is waiting area.


Aside from Hachiko, Shibuya is also known for this large intersection in front of the station. This famous crossing is always packed with people from different walks of life. And every visitor should also experience this scramble crossing. Not my first time but every time I crossed I feel like I was in a movie. There’s this happiness in you that you can’t explain hehehe… weird though. Go to the second floor of Starbucks to get a better view of the intersection.




Of course be careful when using your selfie stick or monopod, baka may biglang matamaan at mangaway patay hehe...




Shibuya is one of Tokyo’s lively and busy districts day and night. It is popular for shopping, dining and night clubs.





We end-up going to Parco Department Store to dine at a Hello Kitty Café but sadly they were replaced by My Melody and My Sweet Piano Cafe. Well since they are still family, keri na we also like My Melody.


Please check separate blog here My Melody and My Sweet Piano Cafe


After dining, we visit this floor which is a must and heaven for all Otaku lovers.


Located at the 6th floor Part 1 of the building, I think Mugiwara One Piece Store is the popular among others.



So this is Sanji right?






Wish I can relate hehehe… but thank God hindi kundi butas bulsa for sure hehe...
