Line to Eat Pancakes and Crepes in Omotesando
Several weeks ago the first Eggs ‘n Things restaurant in Omotesando opened and since then a huge line can be frequently seen of people waiting for hours just to eat crepes and pancakes. It’s been several weeks but there’s still a lot of people lining up.
I took the video vertically. It’s quite crappy!
For some reason that I still don’t fully understand Japanese people like to form huge lines: the line for the Wii launch went from Yurakucho station to near Kanda (several kilometers), and the line for the iPhone launch from Harajuku to Shibuya. Lining up for apparently trivial reasons is very frequent in Japan; however after some time you realize that most of the times there is some media appearance that explains it. For example, the pancakes of Eggs ‘n Things were featured in a TV show and one of the Akb48 girls loved them.
