Shibuya – 10 Shoot, Shop & Eat Places

A dear friend posted on her facebook page these super cute drawings from FreshGrads.Sg.  I used the suggestions to fine-tune my half-day itinerary for Shibuya area.  Not sure if I have time to explore Harajuku.


My Top 10 (listed not in order of priority):

  1. Have lunch or dinner at either Uoriki Kaisen Sushi at the basement of Tokyu Departmental Store or brave the queue at the famous Umegaoka Sushino Midori at Shibuya Mark City. [Eat]
  2. Buy a pack of Japanese tea-time snacks, Fukiyose, from Ginza Kikunoya at Shibuya Mark City.  It comes with a limited edition Hachiko pin. [Shop]
  3. Take photos at Shibuya Crossing and Hachiko’s Statue. [Shoot]
  4. Snack on tori karaage at Kin-no-torikara while walking around Shibuya. [Eat]
  5. Visit the Disney Store that has a unique store front to get advance Disneyland and Sea tickets. [Shop]
  6. Visit the flagship Loft store. [Shop]
  7. Visit Maruara Watanabe for some souvenirs.  Maybe get a kimono? [Shop]
  8. Try The Second Most Delicious Ice Cream Melon Bread in the World.  A mouthful to say and I’m sure a mouthful to eat. [Eat]
  9. Coffee break at On The Corner Bear Pond No. 8. [Eat]
  10. Last but not least, croissant take-away from Boulangerie Patisserie Viron. One of the best places to have French pastries outside of France is Japan. [Eat]

Let’s see what my “10 things to do when in Shibuya” will turn out to be.  Perhaps I’ll get my daughter to illustrate it after our trip.
