Tokyo City tour 2nd Part; Shinjuku Gyoen and Meiji Shrine

I decided to walk the distance between Shinjuku and Shibuya metro station as my last wild city itinerary for this trip. Distance between this two metro station is around less than 10km if passing through the major tourist spots along the way. From Shinjuku metro station exit, I went to Kabukicho first, then to Shinjuku Gyoen, Meiji Shrine, Harajuku for a lunch, then National Yoyogi Stadium and finally to Shibuya metro station.

I spent most of the time on overlooking the huge electronic commercial billboards and the busiest crossing in the world. This was my 2nd time seating in front of the glass panel of Starbucks with a Medium Size Caramel Frappuccino (496JPY=$5) while just observing the countless Pedestrians from above. The Starbucks is located just northeast of Hachiko Exit of JR Shibuya station which can be seen on the 8th picture below (beside "TSUTAYA" below the gigantic electronic billboard). By the way, if you are looking at 9th picture below (Starbucks plastic cup overlooking the Shibuya Crossing with Pedestrians mostly with umbrella due to the drizzle) and the zoom shot at 10th picture, the left road was the way where I came from, going to Shibuya metro station and the Love Hill (Love Hotels). The northern part of this picture is where Hachiko monument is standing while the left side is the entrance to JR Shibuya station.

Shinjuku  is a special ward located in Tokyo Metropolis, Japan. It is a major commercial and administrative centre, housing the busiest train station in the world (Shinjuku Station) and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, the administration centre for the government of Tokyo. The name "Shibuya" is also used to refer to the shopping district which surrounds Shibuya Station, one of Tokyo's busiest railway stations. This area is known as one of the fashion centers of Japan, particularly for young people, and as a major nightlife area.
