To do the fashion in Tokyo any sort of justice, it has to be done separately... but here are some other impressions of this amazing city:
Comic books suitable for "all age" (sic), about schoolgirls armed with machine guns? Oh, sure.
A shop entirely filled with identical teddybears? (yes, we checked)
with awesome food
Plastic food is everywhere. And is that not one fabulous stack of star-shaped "pan cake"? *
Vending machines... see how the top half have a dark blue label underneath and the lower half red? The red ones are hot drinks, and are literally almost boiling!
The loveliest miniature gardens
As well as miniature doorways everywhere
A crazy electrical wiring system
Tea latte, anyone? Yes that is a tea-bag bobbin' about in the foam there... I think of myself as a tea connoisseur but this was a first for me.
An urban canvas
Must be the skinniest building, ever
I really like that biking is so well catered to, possibly because car parking spaces are minimal... very civilised and a green win for Tokyo. The lower picture shows the way to the bicycle parking lot for the underground railway, how awesome is that?
