Out and About Again in Tokyo

You really can’t come to Tokyo and not visit the iconic Shibuya Crossing. Not only was the view from Mag’s Park above the road impressive but crossing the street with the other pedestrians was fun. It is a very busy area and all the streets were bustling with people.

In the nearby Shibuya Hikarie building we found a wonderful display of handmade puppets used in traditional puppet animation.

In the alleyway a lovely lady was selling fruit and vegetables but her speciality seemed to be mushrooms.

We also visited a craft store called Blue & White. It was a small shop specialising in mostly traditional blue and white textiles, Indigo and Boro. Infortunatley no photos allowed.

On our way home we passed through LaQua and the light display was brilliant.

Final day tomorrow…it has gone so fast!

    I want to go to the blue and white shop. I noticed that all the fruit and vegetables were wrapped in plastic. What a pity.

      Blue & white shop had some lovely textiles. We noticed that even in the supermarkets the fruit was wrapped in plastic and on paper trays. So much would need to be recycled!
