Day 2 – Harajuku, Omodesando, Auyama

Morning, after nice sleep after my 24 hours unsleep day (I didn’t sleep on the plane. We just walked to the local 24 hours shop and get some breakfast. 4 bread plus 2 drinks cost 690 yen (£3.40). We then sit at the small park just next to the hotel to eat. The bread are so so so soft and tasty, too strong taste too.

We are now ready to go Harajuku today!!!

shinjuku is not far from harajuku, just 2 stations we arrived at harajuku. We then actually went to the meiji temple nearby the harajuku station first. Meiji temple is just a typical tourist point but is worth for looking at the huge japanese temple which i always saw in the comic book 😉

after the temple, we follow the omotesando down halfway to get in one of the busiest youngster street in harajuku named chu-har-tong. Shyuan is so happy here and bought some shoes, bag and clothes. For girl, those clothes and bag here are cheaper than london and very japanese feel but nothing good or cheap for man instead 🙁

we then get in to the gut-yer-kar for kyu don and una don for lunch….nice!!! then we continue our way into harajuku another site called harajuku first where some branded shops there with not many ppl walking lah. then we continue to the omodesanto for a nice cup of 700 yen coffee (£3.50), a real slowly cooked coffee which is very nice. it’s like a small pub but for coffee only. Then we heading to the aoyama area to look for comme de garcons flagship shop for the building design, prada too. After that we have been to a place called moku yoku for nice cakes!!! then we have been into the maze area looking for the kakimoto saloon for hair cutting. Finally we found it and I got this hair look for 6850 yen where shyuan colouring her hair as well for total 13,650 yen. After that the lang ui stylist get us to get the katsudon!!! a bit expensive then normal lunch place, 1050 yen per bowl but really good one!!! then we are very tired liao but still have to walk for about 20 minutes to the nearby jr station at harajuku and get back to shinjuku. we are lost at first back to shinjuku but finaly we found the way.
