Tokyo March 2015 Part 2 – Harajuku

Taken after a whole day of filming! After saying goodbye to Maenon at LaForet, we wrapped up the NHK shoot with a short interview somewhere in Harajuku. I had about an hour and a half of free time before I had to go back to Shibuya to meet my friends!

I’ve done so many blog posts on Harajuku, but I always find something new every time I’m there. People have a notion that Harajuku is just Takeshita Dori, but Cat Street and Ura-Harajuku (the back streets) are just as vibrant and bustling with unique styles.

‘90s fashion trends still going strong.

Brand Collect, the store on the left, is only one of the many places in Harajuku where you can buy good-quality, slightly used brands at slightly lower prices.

Dropped by Nozy Coffee, one of the best cafes in Cat Street.

I already like, 4 cups of coffee that day, so I settled for coffee soft-serve! OBSESSED.

Japan makes tote bags look extra stylish. Also, Tokyo Hack on the right attracting everyone’s attention!

Finally got to visit SCRAPBOOK, JEANASIS’ flagship store in Cat Street. The store looks super fancy, but the items have the same price points as their regular stores. They offer some additional premium items, as well as some small trinkets that you can’t really find anywhere else. Definitely a must-visit if you’re into classic, stylish pieces.
