I stayed in an air bnb in Tokyo and it was basic but in a really good location in Shibuya. The hotels are so reasonable I'd definitely do that next time though as you're (mostly) guaranteed a more comfortable bed.
Interesting! I didn't know that part, I tried to get the black ankle boots too but Harrolds (the only local shop stocking them) had sold out in my size. I had thought about emailing Andrew McDonald to see if he had any left but completely forgot. I also can't afford his bespoke prices so unless he makes something similar again I'm stuck.
