Day 5: Museum & strolling around in Tokyo

We went super early today to Tokyo National Museum and it was great! My favourites where the wooden Buddha statues and the dope katana swords. But the crown jewel according to me is the kimonos. They were so beautiful! There was one of the garments that was used under the armor and was made of the warriors wives and children clothing material. The katanas & earlier swords were astonishing. I can’t understand how they can be so smooth and perfectly looking considering that they’re forged.


Everything we saw there made me realize how much history Japan has and how much it is being reflected in the current society.

Juuso and I went later today to Shibuya for a tour to walk around not just in the centre, but also in the neighbourhood. When walking towards some cool clothing stores we found lots of nice surprises. One of the nicest things were a shop with just cat products. The owner was a lovely old lady. She kept the store from the ground floor of her apartment. Her cat was super nice too, but we weren’t allowed to pet it because it apparently enjoyed to scratch people. After reaching our clothing pilgrimage goal, And wander, we parted and I headed towards Ebisu. By foot!! It was so nice, 10/10. I saw lots of stuff when walking trough different neighbourhoods. Some of them where funky or atmospheric in their own way.


In Ebisu I arrived to a shop called Kapital. It’s a Japanese brand that could be described as ametora. Japanese/American style. Their clothes aren’t just super cool, they’re like a fusion kitchen.


I took a tube that stoped near to our flat but I walked the wrong way after getting out. It was kind of funny. And stupid. Now Im home after a long day, It’s been really enjoyable.
