Getting Lost Guide in Tokyo II- Shibuya

After writing my first Getting Lost Guide in Tokyo post, I introduced you about Harajuku, where is the heart of Tokyo Fashion and Hipsters culture.

In this second one I am going to show you...


very close to Harajuku. One of the fashionable spots in Tokyo, if Harajuku is a street fashion sacred place, Shibuya is well-known for their high-street local fashion.

This dog called Hachikō ハチ公, who is remembered for his remarkable loyalty to his owner which continued for many years after his owner's death. He had been waiting for his owner near the Shibuya station until he finally met his owner in heaven in 1935. For memorial this cutie, people built this status, which became a landmark in Shibuya nowadays.

'Super Gals!', a famous Manga/ Cartoon based in Shibuya. Hachiko always appearance.

One of movies based on Hachiko

Familiar? This is the famous view which always appears as a Tokyo impression from movies to comics.

Japanese communication design is one of the top in Asia, Ad filled in every corner, futuristic digital screen as part of the building, which make the city so alive, so vivid.

I've been to Japan for a few times. As an non-EU, it is as common as English people go visit Paris for holiday.

Tokyo is always popular for the world. Tokyo is a shopping paradise especially to Asian people. Japanese really know how to sell their products. All the famous global, local brands and cartoon characters all provide variously products and get into a habit to release limited edition products to fulfil the curiosity of the market, which not just make local but the rest of Asia obsessed about.

Although most of the local brands are well-known in other countries, Japanese company keep patent to local. Most of the best Japanese products are just release in Japan. Exported products are always not as good as the local one. I think this is very smart...

'Tsumtsum', popular mobile games in Asia recently.

Tower Record is a huge record store, sell everything related to music and video.

Never miss the bottle/ can of Japanese drink when you are in Japan.

Thanks for reading my words. Hope you enjoy this post, please let me know how do you think so Al Heaology can be better every time! GLG in Tokyo III will be announce next week. If you haven't read GLG in Tokyo I, please have a look here. ;)

Getting lost Guide in Tokyo I- Harajuku

'I really want to see Japan one day!' 

I heard it thousand times in my 25 years... I know it is far from Europe or America or wherever you're from... But there's really no need to make Japan sound like the Bermuda Triangle.

Meanwhile bloggers brought you countless sunshine paradise pics from South-east Asia, I think it is time for me to show you a far more east and futuristic cosmopolitan style.

Tokyo is one of the dream destinations, I actually don't need to mention:

Its unique culture, famous tradition and Sushi are well-known to the world.

Tokyo is a compact, high-tech city, with various transportation. Very convenient to go place to place, lots of the must-go places are even on the same JR line--- Yamanote-sen.
From this post, I will show you Big Four places you need to visit in Tokyo--- Where it's too vivid not to get lost!

Harajuku, probably the most fashionable place in Japan. Which is from the biggest international, local brands to small local vintage store. 

Once you left the train station, Takeshita-dori is the street which is like an entrance to bring you into this Harajuku's world.

FYR the second right is a famous cartoon in Asia. And the third next to Hello Kitty is Peko: Milk girl from sweet.

It is not difficult to see youngsters (Even middle age men or women) dressed in their own way. Whatever you are wearing--- Cartoon style, Lolita (A fashion subculture originating in Japan that is based on Victorian-era clothing) or Visual Rock style...... 

The peace and respect for their fashion senses is all in the atmosphere.

Not many foreigners know, the soul of Harajuku, is the place called Ura-Harajuku, is the common name given to the network of smaller Harajuku backstreets spreading perpendicular to Omotesando, corresponding on official maps of Shibuya ward as Jingūmae 3 chōme and 4 chōme.

Contrasts with the main retail offerings of Harajuku, which contain the best of most local famous independent shops and dining options. Some people who work in this area, are famous stylists, sellers who are respected by lots of locals as a fashionable icon. Who have been interviewed by different magazines, TV shows, and even have their huge fans base.

Thousand of fashion magazine reporters are hunting hipsters for snap shots on the street. Snap-shooting happens all the time in Tokyo. Harajuku is the hottest spot. How big? Click on one of the big websites style-arena .

Sometimes, you have no idea what's so good about the person they took photos of... (Like the photo above...) But I highly admire the small details they aware of.

A Motion Sickness Cure

When you go on an exciting but low-cost road trip, you know you will suffer, but it is stupid to say no...

Wild Kangaroo, I can suffer for that... 

I remember I took 12 hour road trip with 3 lovely people, back seat leg area was filled by massive luggage. The Australian dry heat weather was challenging my body every second...

Found Alice in North Wales- Llandudno

Yesterday, I saw a white rabbit and I fell in to a rabbit hole...

Does anyone know Llandudno is actually well-known for Alice in Wonderland?

'Llandudno’s wonderland links stretch back to 1861 when the young Alice Pleasance Liddell (the real Alice in Wonderland) aged 8 years old first holidayed in the ‘Queen of the Welsh resorts’ Llandudno. Her holiday home ‘Penmorfa’ was built on Llandudno’s West Shore where the family holidayed for many years. '
