Japan Day Eight: Tiger in the Parco (19.04.16)

Posted: 19.04.07 in Blogging

We returned to Tokyo on the Shinkansen and arrived about 2 pm, so that we could checkin straight away. This time we were placed on the 22nd floor and should have had direct views of Mount Fuji in the far distance. In reality the weather never cleared enough for us to be able to distinguish Mount Fuji from the other folds in the Earth on the horizon. Having said that, the view was still spectacular.

We went back out, hitting the rain-soaked Shibuya shopping district. Our hotel lent us a couple of umbrellas and we headed off into the grey. We stopped at a nine-storey HMV store before heading to Parco, a mall split into three. Weiran and I visited parts one and three, and I think we were both impressed by Part Three. I bought a t-shirt by Laundry 038°, and Weiran got a t-shirt by Onitsuka Tiger. Apparently Beck got some shoes from there last week…

That night we ate at the hotel’s Szechwan Chinese restaurant, known as “Chen”. That was quite good, but I’m not really a fan of tofu. Nonetheless it was good.
