[Tokyo Trip] - Harajuku's Energy

As much as I love the charming suburbs, a visit to the famous Harajuku is a must. Best to throng the crowds on the weekend! It’s teeming with energy and great for taking in the sights of Tokyo’s youth culture.

And no visit to Harajuku is complete without trying the crepes! MUST MUST! Lots of flavours and with fanciful displays. How can you make me choose?!

Confession: I slept in that day and had this chocolate ice-cream crepe for breakfast :p! T had banana and cream but loved my chocolate ice-cream just a tad more.

What’s a visit to Japan without having taiyaki?

This has to be the most wonderful taiyaki I ever had! It was made with so much pride, carefully and slowly by these 2 cool fellows. Believe me, you can taste the big difference between this taiyaki and those quickly churned out in local food kiosks.

One of the many good-looking shops in Harajuku (hehe, I was too busy looking around to snap more photos). This one’s actually a hair salon! One of the things I learnt from this trip is that salons in Tokyo are unbelievably gorgeously designed!
