Japan: The land of sushi, vending machines and heated toilet seats. Okay, we all know there’s a lot more to it than the three things I just mentioned. The country is so developed and high-tech that it took me some time to take it all in. There weren’t any traces of litter, the locals were very hospitable, and the buildings just shoot straight up to the sky. I could barely handle the six days in cold weather; my bubble jacket was my best friend for those few days (laughs). However, the photogenic scenery and fabulous food kept us going (Japan: Food Finds will be coming shortly).
Got this amulet saying ‘study’ in the hope of it giving me good luck for exams.
HARAJUKU (or somewhere near it haha) I only knew of the word “Harajuku” because of the bag brand. Little did I know that it’s actually a district in Shibuya. They have great stores here including atmos, which sells specialty sneakers.
TOKYO SKY TREE
We didn’t go up because it was freezing! Tokyo Sky Tree is the second tallest building in the world.
If i’m not mistaken, this is the most famous fish market in the world. The food you’ll find in this area is to die for. We had two brunches: soba and sushi at sushi zanmai.
Uniqlo – seven floors. You can only imagine how long we spent looking around the store.
Muji – seven floors. This brand satisfies every perfectionist out there. Also, beside every muji store we went to, there was loft – Another store with adorable knick knacks. It’s sort of like Target 🙂
Tokyo hands – Sorry, no pictures! But it is the best place for buying friction pens and erasers. Who doesn’t love Japanese stationery?
Next up: Oshino Hakkai, Gotemba Premium Outlets and Disneyland. Below are a few more photos from around Tokyo. That’s all for now! ‘Till next time 🙂
