Its been 5 months since we last took a look at Shibuya - it was sweltering back then but its freezing right now slap bang in the middle of Winter.
If you are visiting Tokyo then Shibuya is certainly a place that you dont want to miss - filled with energy and home to the busiest crossing in the world. Get off at Shibuya station on the JR line and just wander around to start exploring!

First photo - Shibuya crossing. These photos taken before Christmas by the way.

This photo taken about 20 years ago in the same spot at Shibuya crossing - you would have already seen this photo in the How Discovering Japan Changed My Life post.

Going to leave you to the rest of Shibuya to wander around - enjoy!

Which do you prefer ladies - 2D or 3D?

Never did get round to seeing the Richard Gere flick Hachi - how was it?

View of Shibuya crossing from the Starbucks.

Shibuya 109 - everything for the ladies and the only thing for men are toilets.

Order cinema tickets online and pick up here. Standard seat tickets typically cost roughly 1,500 yen - 2,000 yen. How does that compare to your neck of the woods?

What Japanese folks eat for new year - read all about Osechi here.

It says "Information Center" but they dont give the sort of information that you would be expecting - its actually for folks who are looking for some hanky panky...

Lawsons Vocaloid "Akikoloid." Who are your fave MMD modellers?

For folks who are fans of cigarettes and salt.

How many of you try out the UFO catchers when in Japan?

Are these thingies popular in your neck of the woods too?

And the green lighted hotel is where some of that hanky panky is likely to be executed ^^;

Mandarake Shibuya - I got a whole photo post on that just for you.

How many of you play instruments? The musical variety I mean - not the ones attached to your body.

At the Gunpla section in Tokyu Hands.

And here is 109 for mens - you should be able to pick up quite a few fashionable items.

When you come to Japan, do you buy clothes?
