Tokyo, Japan

Snapshots from Shibuya

After visiting the AMAZING TeamLab exhibition in Odaiba (my absolute favorite experience in Japan to date), and seeing the city from above at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, we headed to the world’s busiest crossing in Shibuya!! It was our friend Allison’s first time! It’s always a super fun area to explore and shop around. I always go up to the Starbucks to see the crossing from a better point of view.

His owner passed away unexpectedly while at work, but this loyal pup kept up this routine for almost 10 years!! Read more of his amazing story.
