The heat and humidity continue but today was the last full day, so armed with an umbrella, as you do, off I went. At least it was overcast. I was keen to walk along Tokyo's "Champs-Élysées" - Omotesando Boulevarde in the Omotesando neighbourhood, a long tree lined boulevarde constructed in 1920 to conduct worshippers to the Meiji Jingu shrine. Today the avenue is lined by designer buildings, boutiques, and fashion houses. It's a far cry from the crazy scene around the corner at Shibuya and degrees cooler.

At one subway stop from the hotel, it was a walk there and a ride back.

Time for iced tea.

The little side streets extend the posh vibe a short way before it quickly fades away.

Eclectic just about covers it.

I was about to cross the pedestrian overpass the explore Tod's when the battery on the little camera ran out.

Unfinished is good.
