A quick supper after shopping like hell in Shibuya center-gai.
It was saturday night, so all the youngsters in Tokyo converge in Shibuya, full-force. I've never seen so many Japanese Ah-bengs and Ah-lians(*) packed in a single area. In fact, I've never seen as many people packed in a single area in a non-rock-concert-nor-mardi-gras setting.
When you're carrying like, 15 shopping bags, you have no mood for a fancy dinner. So, I chose a reliable, predictable, quick, cheap-as-chips restaurant chain Hidakaya, home of the 400 yen ramen (yessir, who said that everything in Japan is expensive??)
I also heard that somewhere in Shimokita-zawa (a neighborhood in Tokyo, home of poor indie artists and peniless college students), there's a restaurant that sell a bowl of plain ramen for 80 yen (which is cheaper than a bottle of mineral water and 1/3 the price of a fancy Georgia canned coffee)!
