Tokyo - Shibuya


View Oceania + SE Asia on lhuff35204's travel map.

We bought subway Pasmo cards when we arrived here and we went a couple of stops last night, but it's been a little intimidating. This is not your typical subway system...

So here we go, all day on the subway: train changes, station transfers, exit maps, etc.

The white gloved pushers were out in force in case you didn't get into the subway car (this was the most packed car we have ever been in, anywhere)

Shibuya subway station is massive and dumps 3-5 train loads of people into this intersection every 5 minutes (the busiest crossing in the world)

Shibuya is also a huge shopping area

Ramen shop. Many restaurants in Shibuya were "closed" when we walked in, even though they were full of locals. This place seated us but we had to pick one of these items from the board and accept what we got (which was pretty good). I gave the waiter a few thousand Yen and he brought some change. We never spoke (we couldn't and he couldn't)
