Jimmy Choo with H&M at the Shibuya store
I started my Sunday walk in Shibuya having a look at Yamada Denki and then checking out the H&M Store that opened recently.
Looking out of the Tokyu Honten elevator back down towards Shibuya Station
mmmm, looks like there is more than one Choo in town making news this week.
I had heard about the new NIKE store opening thanks to TokyoFashion.com and decided to go and check it out. Since Harajuku is just one stop away on the Yamanote line, I set off on foot. It takes about 5-10 minutes to walk down and on the weekend there are plenty of people out.
On the way I passed plenty of brand stores and took a few snaps of some.
ZARA are about to open a new store near Shibuya Station right next to Marui
Marui currently have nike, adidas in their store, but with concept stores popping up, how do these small stores in store keep going?
Marui City also has many small and large designer brands in store
There were plenty of people around, but too close to snap really. My zoom lens would probably have hit someone in the face if I pointed it at them. Never a good thing to happen when you want to get a photo taken. ^_^
Decided to show this picture in black and white, sort of sepia, just to change things up
Crossing the road using the overpass. This is the view looking down towards Harajuku.
Looking back towards Shibuya, the Cerulean Tower stands out nicely against the tree in the foreground. Autumn and its changing colors can be very nice
A few more stores to see
Mountain HARD WEAR for all your winter clothing needs
The Audi Forum Tokyo is quite an interestingly designed building
Do you know any / all of the stores above? Some names were new to me.
These 2 girls were wearing exactly the same outfit. Not sure what the outfit was for
This looked like a Uniqlo UT store with lots of New York style jazz
Everyone was taking a good look at this car. Nice set of wheels on this Lexus convertible
GAP, Plaza and food stores. The main crossing at Harajuku, Omotesandori
It was so crowded today, there must have been some events on, or maybe everyone was fed up of being kept indoors with the flu and decided to make a break for it to Harajuku.
The streets were packed out today. It was hard just to find a place to stand never mind walk. No chance of getting down to KIDDY LAND
Takeshita-dori was just as bad if not worse
The new NIKE store which had been my original place to visit was close to Harajuku station. Unfortunately they were guarding the store closely and didn’t want any photos taken. Looks like they want to write their own copy rather than have social media getting in on the act. Sorry, no photos to show you.
Instead here is some more Tokyo scenery to view ^__^.
The DoCoMo building at Yoyogi Station always stands out brightly
Harajuku Station was so busy they had to close the ticket gates every 5 minutes or so and stop people from entering
Since Harajuku Station was packed out I decided to come home via the new Fukutoshin-sen
With NIKE not wanting any free publicity, I thought I would take some photos of adidas.
The adidas store at Shibuya has had a bit of a facelift or wrapper lift
Do you normally take a walk on the weekend? What area do you normally go to see? What sites are there to view along the way?
