Takeshita dori, Harajuku
Long time readers of CandyflossOverkill will know that I absolutely adore Japanese fashion and have wanted to go to Harajuku for ever. I finally got to go there, but I was ill the whole time. So most of my pictures from Harajuku and that day in Tokyo were pretty blurry, I'm sorry. 
Still, I got my first taste of Harajuku! 

The famous Takeshita doori sign:

 Harajuku was rammed solid. Mostly with tourists, although there were some amazingly dressed people there too. If you can, I'd say go here on a week day, although that advice goes for any tourist destination.

 The backstreets are a lot nicer than Takeshita Dori, in my opinion. You can actually move there, and there are loads of shops that I have to go back to with my Christmas money :)
We passed stores like Tokyo Bopper, Candy Stripper and Nadia Flores en el Corazon. I went into Candy stripper, and I just wanted to buy everything! I couldn't really try the clothes on though, because I wasn't feeling well.

 And we passed Laforet shopping mall too!
I have to go back! I think I'll spend a morning in Harajuku next time I go up to Tokyo.

 There was a Tamagotchi shop near the station! Tamagotchi was a large part of my childhood. Who else remembers secretly hiding one in your desk at primary school and playing it in class?
You can't go to Harajuku without buying at least one thing, and for me that was these pom pom earrings from Paris Kids:
They were super reasonably priced at around 320 yen. 

Hopefully next time I return to Harajuku, I'll be able to spend more time there! 
It's definitely a must see, if you are into Japanese fashion or not.

Thanks for reading! (^O^)/
