July 9: shibuya illuminated by the non existent vacancy signs.

Day 2
After the night before yesterday' nearly sleepless night, I finally slept comfortably on the futon in my dark corner. Oh Japan, you so surprisingly comfortably cozy. We found an Italian chain restaurant called Saizeriya.
Italian bread
My plan was to eat light and then sample as many Japanese snacks as I could throughout the day.
Focaccia = 109 Yen  (~$1.15 CND)

We originally planned to visit the Imperial Gardens, but when we arrived we discovered it was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.... well then new plan!
We went over to the other side of town to the famous Shibuya district where the streets were lined up with stores galore, fashionable people, delicious looking restaurants, and huuuge screens. If I could use one work to describe Shibuya, it would be vivacious.
The sea of people and screens 
Disney Store was so much nicer than in Canada.
spotted some street performances
Foooood time! We went into a market place where there were many vendors selling different items. After walking around the place a few times, I decided to try some fresh pre-packaged sushi. Eating sushi in Japan, woohoo!
pre-packaged sushi = 420yen ($5.50CND)

Didn't do what we wanted to, but mmmm, Japan. Daisukidayo.
