Another thing I noticed was how polite everyone was toward us and the driver of the rickshaw. People were kindly moving out of the way and complimenting us on how cool we looked in the rickshaw. It was an experience I really enjoyed, making me feel like a rock star.
As we passed the famous Starbucks in Oharaimachi, which is set in a traditional old wooden building, we stopped, and Ryu pointed out the mermaid on top of the building. Yes, that’s the Starbucks Siren on all the cups, I thought to myself. This is something I had missed earlier when walking around this area. The high ride of the rickshaw provides excellent views of Oharaimachi – spotting things you miss from walking on the road.
