Fashion, fun, entertainment, and facemasks – a look at Tokyo in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Japan is in a perplexing situation these days―people are slowly starting to get back into their normal daily rhythms, while still taking extra precautions in accordance with the COVID-19 situation. Malls are welcoming back customers by setting out hand sanitizer in every doorway, and companies are inventing new contraptions to make mask-wearing bearable. And people are slowly but surely returning to Shibuya.
So what does Tokyo look like now, in October 2020? What are the streets of the city’s busiest shopping hotspots really like? Come with me on a short stroll through Shibuya.
The plaza containing Shibuya’s famous Hachiko statue is never empty, even now, but with fewer tourists there isn’t much of a line forming to take pictures with the loyal dog!
- With a little timing, you can just about get some streets to yourself.
