Flying JAL we experienced terrific service and great leg space in a brand new 787 plane.
The familiar corner shops to get a quick nibble or a hot or cold coffee:
Our Airbnb in Shinjuku- an intriguing neighborhood with some interesting nightclubs (ladies pay 0¥ !):
We thought this was a supermarket, but this is a gift shop where you can buy mainly melons as expensive giveaways. We witnessed a customer buying a banana wrapped in cellophane with a gift string attached to it. Probably for his superior?
Next we went to Roppongi Hills, a 40 floor business tower with a great museum. Last time we saw an exhibit by Warhol. Take a look at that roof garden in the building opposite.
That must be Shibuya in the distance, the district built on top of the second busiest train station in the world. The busiest station is Shinjuku, which handles more than 3.5 million persons … EACH DAY! “The station was used by an average of 3.64 million people per day in 2007, making it, by far, the world’s busiest transport hub” (Wikipedia)
On the top floor of Roppongi Hills is the Moro Art Museum – with a great exhibit by Shiota Chiharu. “The Soul Trembles” – a very dreamy exhibit, beautiful work.
At the foot of the tower, an evaporation system to keep people cool.
Sushi bar Genki Sushi in Shibuya, a bit overcrowded, but OK quality.
Drinking an ice old coffee in XFLAG STORE Shibuya. It isn’t every hot, but humid.
