Day Seven (7th April~Tokyo, Harajuku)

After 8 hours of bus ride, we finally reached Tokyo again.

Everytime we alight the bus, the air outside would be freezing cold.

Our breakfast at Matsuya, Ikebukuro.
Beef Bowl.
We're supposed to crack the raw egg and mix it straight into the beef bowl but we daren't try that.

Jap Curry Rice

Inside Matsuya.
It's more like a 'eat-and-go' place.
After having breakfast at Matsuya, we decided to boycott it as the sticky rice made us very sick with a nauseous feeling, well, maybe its just us.

Ikebukuro Station.

Stranded at Ikebukuro.
It was 8am in the morning and shops were not open yet.
We couldn't check into our guesthouse as it's too early.

Many older folks can still be seen wearing the traditional kimono out.
and i suspect this person in the picture is a man!

I'm really in love with Japanese handphones, they're so chic and cute!!!

Shinjuku Train Station (platform) on a Saturday morning.

Harajuku, Takeshita Dori Shopping Street.

This place is my ultimate favourite shopping street in Tokyo.
Everything is nice and reasonaly priced!
Trendy clothes, cheap accessories, perfumes, shoes, lingerie all found here!
It's something like Far East Plaza in street form.

Look out how crowded it is, and it's only around 10 plus in the morning!

Paris Kids.
This shop along Takeshita Dori sells all kinds of funky accessories at only 315yen each.

Some cute cosplayers.

Harajuku Station entrance (this entrance is near the overhead bridge where all the cosplayers will gather on Sundays)

Giant Takopachi! (the ones in Osaka tasted better)

Ainz Tulpe.
A wide range of cosmetics and skincare products can be found here.
Here's where i got my Kiss and Gransenbon stuff.

KISS cosmetic products.
The packaging and names of the products are so sweet!

Zara, Harajuku.

This was the point when my camera started having problems.
I'm secretly happy cuz that means i can buy a new one!!!
I had the perfect excuse to get a new camera in Tokyo. :P

Adidas Concept Store

We were amused by how the shops here are set up and decorated.
All so cute and innovative!

Another innovative way of promoting shops.

Our dinner- Western Style 90 minutes all-you-can-eat BUFFET!

We were starving from walking around for the whole day since early in the morning.
The food was not bad, all kinds of pastas and pizzas await me!
Plus juicy salads, mango puddings, hotcakes and more!!!


Everything about Harajuku is so cute!!
I simply love this place the most!!


Some things i bought today:

Long cardi in Royal Blue.
I didn't buy from the above seller though cuz her price was too expensive.
Recca helped me buy from Far East Plaza, very nice and helpful of her :)

DAY SIX (6th April~OSAKA)

I can't remember what fish is this

Strolling along Den Den Town.
Den Den Town is a place where you can get cheap deals for electronic products, it's equivalent to Tokyo's Akihabara.

Sushi Memory Storage!
They're cute and not very expensive!
Darn, why didn't i buy one?

Pretty Japanese Handphones!
It's very hard to get a handphone in Japan because the phones do not have slots for insertion of simcards.

Snack time at MacDonald's.
There was this promotion for MacNuggets where 6 pieces only cost 100yen which is around SGD1.30 only!
Their nuggets are really nice and fresh, it's different from Singapore's.

Smoking and non smoking section in Macdonald's.

Umeda is another popular spot for shopping in Osaka.
It consists of many shopping malls and shops!

Buying food again.

Back at Shinsaibashi area, we prefer shopping here.

This reminds me of DIOR in Taipei.

Japanese Pizza.

Another street vendor selling BBQed stuff.

*i love Namba for all it's great food!!*
Osaka is known as Japan's FOOD CAPITAL!

A fire engine stopped right outside our guesthouse.

Seems like a casualty has happened nearby but no one knows what happened.
Everyone crowds around to look.

On the way to our night bus' destination.
We're really tired!

This very kind girl walked us all the way to our destination when we asked for directions!
The walk was around 10 mins and she even helped us carry our luggage!!
Our 'shower position' every morning in Osaka.

Bye Osaka, Hi TOKYO!!!
Tokyo, the best part of the trip is here in Tokyo.
Stay tuned for my next update.

anyway, here's what i bought recently:

Shiroi Koibito White Lovers Chocolate from Hokkaido.

Two-toned Cami in Royal Blue and Yellow :D
