On the way we picked up a Soya Matcha Green Tea and Adzuki Smoothie from Mr Bean at Shibuya Station. It was vegan and very delicious. The chain originates from Singapore and we actually enjoyed their soya based drinks before when visiting there.

It was dark by the time we descended. We walked over to the neighbouring Asakusa area to visit the Sensō-ji temple, the oldest Buddhist temple in Tokyo dating back to the year 628.
