Tokyo Trip 2016 – Day 4 : Ginza & Meiji Shrine

Ginza was our first stop of the day. It was on a Sunday, so the main shopping street of Ginza was closed off to road traffic; from noon to 5 pm– allowing you to walk around freely (^▽^).

The street was big and spacious; you can spot high-end stores  everywhere. We walked down the entire street and took lots of photos, like many other tourists.

Then we visited the biggest Uniqlo store in the world! It took us forever to browse through the entire 12 floors of clothing.

The lines of mannequins spinning around, was oddly mesmerizing (ノ*゚▽゚*)

Uniqlo’s T-shirt gallery was so cool, there were so many different types of t-shirts, so it’s hard not to find one to your liking.

 

There were also small Mickey Mouse figures displayed near the escalators. How cute is that?

The next stop on our plan was the Meiji Shrine. We got off at Harajuku station, and walked up the avenue towards the entrance leading to the shrine. The pathway was in a peaceful forest. It was a nice change; being surrounded by these beautiful lush trees and away from bustling city life of Tokyo.

Strolling through the shrine grounds was captivating. We arrived at the shrine after walking for a good 12 minutes.

 

Now it was time to head back to Oshiage for some dinner. We ended up at this Korean restaurant, because the queue for the Japanese restaurants were too long. Guess we need to try out more Japanese dishes from now on (♡˙︶˙♡).

Although we did try the green tea ice cream at Gion Tsujiri Tokyo Skytree Town Solamachi ✿ that night, and it was so good!

 

Has anyone tried green tea ice cream before?

 

Stay tuned for our next Japan post!
