Day 3 in Japan – Part 3

After Kiddy Land, we decided to go to Shibuya for dinner. We arrived at Shibuya station and wanted to see the famous Hachiko statue first. Hachiko is a dog and the story became famous in Western countries because of the movie with Richard GereHachiko – A dog’s story“. It was great seeing the statue in person.

After that we went to the most famous crossway in Tokyo which is just HUGE! There are so many people crossing the street at once, it is just amazing to stand there in the middle of the crowd and watching them.

to order those noodles, you need to choose your meal in front of the restaurant at the vending machine and pay right there. Then you go inside and get your order. Apparently Wentworth Miller from Prison Break visited this place before as his picture eating their noodles hang in the window display.

After dinner, we had to go to LOFT, which I heard a lot of before and was nearby anyway. LOFT is a huge shop, total 7 floors, with lots and lots of stationery and anything else you can imagine related to office, school, hobby, toys, home and more. We took lots of pictures inside, have a look:
