My vacation to Tokyo, Japan, was one of the best trips of my life. I fully immersed myself in planning the trip by watching countless YouTube videos, reading several travel blogs, browsing through multiple Pinterest pins, and chatting with friends who have visited before.
Hopefully this itinerary can save you some time if you’re ever planning a future trip to Tokyo and want to see the highlights!
Day Four: Harajuku
When most people my age think of Japan, they think of Takeshita Street in Harajuku. It is a small strip of colorful stores and fast food options that really showcase the culture of this beautiful city!
- When you walk into Purikura Land Noa, you will be astonished by the number of photobooths! Take your time and enjoy all the personalization features to really make your pictures sparkle!
- Eat a 7-layer rainbow cotton candy at Totti Candy Factory. It was enormous!
- Take a photo standing near the escalators under the famous mirror ceiling of Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku.
- Eat lunch or dinner at Kawaii Monster Café. One of the absolute highlights of my trip! There are four different themed areas (Mushroom Disco, Milk Stand, Bar Experiment, and the Mel-Tea Room), colorful food, engaging performances, and a giant revolving cake as centerpiece of the restaurant. SO KAWAII!!!
