Shibuya is an amazing place and I will return in about a week.
But this is one of the reasons.
It is so dynamic and youth cultured.
There are some amazing bands playing on street corners during the evening hawking their latest home-made CD.
And they are awesomely good. [The QUALITY of the video is much poorer than how they sounded IRL]
I spent the most of today pottering around Ueno and Asakusa getting re-familiarised with my DSLR. [Although I mostly ended up using the Program function when my initial forays into manual settings return only WHITE screens… *sigh* I will read the manual again on the train to Kyoto]
I have never been up to the Senso-ji temple itself as the last time I visited it was shortly after New Years day and the crowds were horrendous. After ten minutes and only getting 5 metres I decided to give it a miss.
This time there were hardly any adherents, mostly just tourists, like me, there to take photos and throw 1 yen coins into the donation chests.
Tomorrow I get up early to catch the train to Kyoto.
