Shibuya Photo of the Week

Shibuya Photo Japan

Shibuya is my photo of the week. Having lived in Japan for almost 2 years in 1990, I visited one of my favourite places here - Shibuya in late 2012. Much has changed over the last 2 decades but the main attractions here is the Shibuya Junction, one of the most photographed places in Japan. Everyday during peak hours, thousands of people will crisscross this intersection from all angles and it is a sight to behold.

Coming back to Shibuya brought back loads of memories where I used to come here on weekends to hang out at the local cafes and also check out the latest Japanese fashion back then. Now, Shibuya is known as one the top shopping areas in Japan where you can find all kinds of everything here. Main roads are dotted with shopping malls, department stores and specialty shops while the best part about Shibuya is exploring the inner roads to find the smaller niche shops which come in all kinds. 

With budget airline AirAsia X flying to Narita 4 times weekly, it is now easier for many to visit Tokyo. In May 2015, AirAsia X plans to fly daily here while now there are daily flights to Haneda airport via AirAsia X. While writing this article, I yearn to visit Japan again, mostly for the culture and food as even after staying here, I found the Japanese very intriguing. If you think it is expensive to visit Japan, let me assure you it is not. It is almost the same as going to Korea or even Shanghai. I hope you liked my Shibuya Photo of the week and if you have something to share about Shibuya, please feel free to comment.
