Walked in a daze until Omotesando where I was stopped by some Japanese for an interview in a magazine. They wanted me to write something down on a board about something i thought i understood, then they were supposed to take a photo of me holding it. I wrote down “Follow your (he)Art”, but it wasn’t the answer that they needed. They tried to explain the question but I just didn’t get it, so I said nevermind. Too bad, I would have been featured in a Japanese magazine ;p
I crossed the street to check out Maison Martin Margiela, Commes des Garcon and MOMA Design store where I saw Christian Soriano of Project Runway.
Haaaay, Harajuku, I heart you!
I followed the crowd and discovered what they were queuing up for – a hawaiian pancake house! Apparently, hawaiian pancakes is a big culinary trend here in Tokyo. I didn’t try it but based on the photos, it’s just a stack of pancakes topped with a variety of fruits and macadamia nuts.
On this street I found the coolest peeps in the world, haha. Everyone here looks original and interesting. That’s why there are a lot of fashion photographers snapping away.
I went inside Laforet but I didn’t stay too long. Nothing really caught my fancy or should i say, some of the things I liked was just too expensive. So, I went on and continued walking, then I discovered this toy paradise.
Imagine, 5 floors of toys, kalurky!
I wanted to buy me some ghibli toys but I am scheduled to visit the Ghibli museum on my last day so perhaps i will find better souvenirs there.
TOTORO & PONYO 😀
Kawaii overload, waaaaaaaa 😀
The technique is to go straight to the top floor then slowly make your way down. This place is overwhelming. I saw a lot of kids begging their parents to buy them some toys and also tourists looking for gifts to bring home. Me, I only got one thing – a ponyo toy to play in the planggana!
BEARBRICK TOMY CARS
It’s a bit cold and I am starving. I ended up in this chicken place called Potechao.
The chicken was a bit dry but very filling.
It’s getting late, I have to head back to my hostel, but first I need to navigate the subway on my own. It wasn’t difficult coming here to Harajuku from Kuramae but I ended up getting lost going back home.
I was going around in circles, getting off the wrong stop, riding toward the wrong direction, walking out the wrong gate. I am just super tired, all I want is to lie down. I did ask for directions but, i dunno, I think I’m just wiped out. It took me forever, ok not forever, but more like 2 hours to find the right way. Eventually, gratefully, i got home. Haaaaaayrajuku!
