Tokyo - Meji Shrine and Shibuya (Day 1)

Our first day lead us to the Meiji Shrine and via Omotesando to the Shibuya station.
This first trip offered a first impression how tradition and religion meet modern live in Japan.

Quite impressive are the lights of the city, it seems nobody in Japan is concerned about high energy cost. Big screens and creative illuminations everywhere.

I guess nowhere in the world is the density of premium brand boutiques as high as in Japan, two of many Chanel and Dior shops.

Shibuya: busy, bright, colorful
