The Face of Shibuya

Certainly not the only well-known face around Shibuya station, but representative of a sizable constituency. I mentioned Kogals in an earlier post... the "Shibuya Girls" appear to be the same creature, just localized and re-labeled.

Because Shinjuku is close and crowded enough, we don't usually venture into Shibuya. But incidentally, we'll be there tomorrow for two events - the 5th Thai Food Festival [Thai Embassy] and a Stereolab show at CLUB QUATTRO.
