Tokyo – Omotesando & Harajuku, street style heaven!

_DSC6239Street style, shopping, delicious crêpes, cuteness overload – Harajuku has it all. After spending 3 whole days walking around Omotesando and Takeshita Dori I can state that this is my absolute favourite part of town and definitely a must see!

_DSC4305Food: first things first! Since you’re in teen heaven, what could there possibly better than indulging into a crêpe? My absolute favourite is strawberries, cream, oreos and chocolate ice-cream – for lunch (because starting with the dessert one of those things you only do when you’re on holiday!). If you fancy a coffee & wifi with a view head to the Starbucks on the roof of Tokyu Plaza and relax while overlooking the city.  _DSC4308_DSC4340 Takeshita Dori

Walk around, have a look at people dressed in very original and special ways and explore the neighbourhood. This is where you’ll find all the crazy teen fashion items you’ve only been dreaming about. If you’re into more serious costumes head to “Body Line” for coloured wigs and maid outfits. Don’t miss out on DAISO, the famous 100 yen shop you find all over Japan. Perfect for souvenirs (chopsticks, bowls, green tea,…), travel supplies (AMAZING travel liquid containers!), journals, food, party supply and loads of other stuff._DSC4311 _DSC4313 _DSC4321  Omotesando

From Takeshita Dori walk around and enjoy many beautiful (vintage) shops, street style and other interesting things while heading towards Omotesando – the Champs Elysées of Tokyo. There you’ll find all the luxury your wallet can stand. For crazy souvenirs head to KiddyLand – a place with fluffy unicorns, crazy stickers of cartoon characters and lots of weird and funny things to bring as presents to family and friends._DSC6153 _DSC6191 _DSC6194 _DSC6195 _DSC6199 _DSC6202 _DSC6209 _DSC6222  _DSC6254 _DSC6262 _DSC6266 Getting there: Subway stop Meiji-jingumae (Chiyoda/ Fukotoshin Line)or Harajuku (JR Yamanote Line)// head to Takeshita Dori and follow the whole road until the crossing, then continue all the way straight and head towards Omotesando Road (stopover at Kiddyland)_DSC6293For general tips regarding travelling in Tokyo/ Japan read this survival guide.
