Almost everything is more expensive in Omotesando than the same
merchandise that is sold in other suburbs. You often see
well-dressed women walking the streets, browsing in shops or having
afternoon tea in one of the classy cafes.
KL and I went to Omotesando last Saturday to have lunch at a Hong
Kong style restaurant (more on that later). After our meal, we
took a stroll in the area and slowly made our way toward Shibuya ().
Besides the usual high-class shops and chic crowds, we saw a Matsuri
(Festival) set-up. Apparently there was going to be a Japanese
parade on Sunday and there were staff sitting under tents accepting
donations, and floats and equipment being kept in a makeshift
We've seen enough Matsuri in Japan so we weren't going to return to
Omotesando the following day to see one. I snapped some pictures
of the parade stuff to show you though.
Note: It just so happened that we did
stumble upon another small Matsuri in Shibuya that day. We must
be destined to see a parade that day whether we planned to or
not. Fate is funny sometimes.
