Tokyo, Japan

Harajuku’s Takeshita Street

Posted In: Japan | Tokyo | Travel

Just two weeks after coming home from Thailand, my friend Allison and I hopped over to Tokyo to visit our friend Katie (who you’ve probably seen featured in previous posts, since she used to live in Okinawa) for a few days during her Summer vacation. We stayed at her house in Yokosuka and explored a bit of Tokyo, Kamakura, Yokohama and Enoshima.

We got off the plane and went straight to Harajuku Station to meet up with her! We left our luggage in a locker at the station (thanks Japan for being so amazing) and walked down Takeshita Street in search for some Mexican food. You’re probably thinking… who eats Mexican food in Japan? My answer is people who’ve lived in Japan and are sick (sorry not sorry) of Japanese food, lol!

IMG_8526 IMG_8528As expected it was crazy busy and extremely hot/humid. But it is such a fun area to explore and shop around. There wasn’t as many people dressed up in quirky Japanese fashion as there used to (or maybe it’s because it was 90* outside) but the shops still sell some kawaii stuff!
