What to Do at Shibuya? **Chillaxing Version**

📍Shibuya, Tokyo


Honestly, I always avoid going to Shibuya, Tokyo because the crowd is just wild. I love the big city, but sometimes is just too much, especially in Tokyo. As a fashion & travel blogger of The Equinox Fashion, I've been traveling to this city several times, still I'm in love. However, my traveling style is so simple that people think I live here. I don't really go to the attractions because too many people makes me annoyed. 1.) I can't really get good street style #ootd shots, 2) Attractions are expensive. But hey what about Shibuya? It's the world famous spot too. Well, what to do at Shibuya? Here's how to chill for those who just wanna chillax in a big city. 

OBSERVE PEOPLE AT SHIBUYA CROSSING


Well, what more can I say? I love talking photos but prefer not to mingle on the street. In a raining day like this, I usually hide myself around the corner (sounds like a creep right?) And just take photos. You can literally see the Japanese lifestyle, the bustling lives crossing the rode, just like in the movie. I love observing people, though I don't really understand what they saying in Japanese. However, it's kinda like living in the moment.

ENJOY THE SHOPPING


From Uniqlo, to Forever 21, you can simply enjoy all the brands here. FYI, not the luxury brand though. Mostly are the fast retailers like H&M, Muji, GU and some of the Japanese brands at Shibuya 109 and other department stores. Love the pink pastel kawaii thing? I would recommend you to Harajuku (which I will publish my favorite shops at harajuku later) But if you are looking for everyday outfit, then Shibuya can be the right place. 




ENJOY DESSERT AT THE CAFE


If you've nothing to do, just do cafe hopping! There are a lot of cafe to visit in Tokyo, such as ELLE, and etc. What's better than just eating in the rain?! Here's one of my faves.

  7. I really like Shibuya I think I spend the most time (and money) there even though I don't intend to but I always seem to be there haha! I think I actually bought more kawaii and otaku stuff from there than I did in Harajuku and Akiba haha!, Shibuya seems to have everything XD

  8. People watching is one of my favourite activities! But I hear ya. Even in New York, there are so many spots that are always packed. The trick is to get there really early. Like for the Brooklyn Bridge, I literally got there at 6am to make sure I'd get a clean shot!
