Just how much do the Japanese like shopping?
Hint: a lot.
A short while after reaching Takeshita Dori on a weekend, we screamed for mercy and ducked into the nearest restaurant for refuge. That would be Wolfgang Puck Express, ten steps to the right after you enter the shopping street. As you can probably tell, it didn’t take us very long to raise the white flag.
Things were slightly saner after lunch, but then again, maybe fuller stomachs make braver souls.
