Harajuku/Shibuya/Tokyo Tower.

On the 22nd Dan & I took a visit to Harajuku, Shibuya and Tokyo Tower. They're all relatively close together so we decided to visit all three in one evening. I had a test in the morning at the university, and the last two have a special atmosphere when it's dark, so we headed out later in the day.

First of all we took the train to Harajuku (for the second time). We went clothes shopping and Dan bought me some nice things ^_^ We then wandered towards Omotesando and I took Dan to a creperie that I had been to before. It does savoury and sweet crepes at the side of the road and is delicious. Dan had kiwi and strawberry icecream.

We then walked down the main street towards Shibuya. It's about a 15 minute walk and by this time it was getting dark and as it was a Friday night there was a really nice feeling about the place generally. We walked past a pair of guys playing a cover of Tamacun by Rodrigo and Gabriela which made things even more awesome.

We didn't do much at Shibuya; we were mainly there to people-watch, see the Hachiko statue by the station and make the crossing (which we did several times in order to take a video too). It was pretty bustling with people at this point. We then headed down into the metro and travelled to our final stop, Tokyo Tower.

The station we went to was about a 10-15 minute walk away, there was no need for a map as the tower was all lit up and gigantic in the near distance. We decided not to go up to the observation deck but we had a look around the inside.  It was definitely worth going at night.
