What IS going on there??  We haven't seen all the teams gathered together at a Pitstop since Margaret was elim'd in Season one I don't think....

Maybe they are somehow making up for Lisa and Eric?? :duno:

And I LOVE that Canaan was going to get all his tour to the end even if it meant carrying them!! :funny:

Note the VISOR in the left of the last pic of wp's...

I GET IT!!

The Pitstop is the end of the line for the tour!! So each team herds their out of town Japanese tourists right to the Pitstop!! :jumpy:

So we have teams and their living breathing task!! :lol:

Just a little rant, we are not going to have time to spoil Vietnam as we aren't going to have time between shows to study the preview. How dare they not let us spoil  (:;)  :lol:

I am going to guess that it is "Three Minutes Happines" store in Shibuya:

Three Minutes Happiness
With such low price tags on everything, it's easy to go a bit crazy at this two-story discount shop. Highlights include loads of affordable clothing, a towering bin of cute $2-per-pair underwear, and a bounty of bright hand towels (there are no towels in public restrooms, so everyone carries a reusable one).

I am further going to speculate that the reason teams are so visible at the pit stop is because it is a TBC (even though it has what appears to be a greeter with Phil) and they have to wait for something.

 I think they are at the Pitstop all together because they still have their whole tour group with them!! Not for a TBC...

Konno Hachimangu Shrine...I think! :lol:



Peach I don't think you have the right station. This map above centers on Tochomae Station. It is on the same line (Toei Oedo) as Yoyogi station but that is the second station in that vicinity after Shinjuku station. Here is a map in English of the entire Tokyo subway system(Shinkjuku is in big letters and the other 2 stations are on either side on that line):

Thanks for the English version!! I don't know for sure, but that is the exact map that came up  labelled the SHRINE so I'll keep it till we do more research. It was the Shrine I was after, not the station, so perhaps it is between the two? My Japanese is nonexistent so :duno:
