TOKYO

In the interest of full disclosure yes I did spend the whole day singing Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Girls. This song was my first introduction into the world of Tokyo, and Japan and I couldn’t wait a moment to get down to Takeshita Dori. We went first thing in the morning on my first full day in Tokyo.

The street was packed, even on a Monday morning with teenage girls in matching outfits, and seven year old girls in platforms and chunky socks wandering round with their mums, crepe in hand.

As we hadn’t eaten breakfast yet we queued up at the first crepe stand we saw (there were a few) and I can tell you that tiramisu inside a crepe will revolutionise your breakfast choices. It was huge, and sweet and so filling I almost couldn’t get to the end. But thankfully there was plenty to look round at before heading back for rainbow candyfloss bigger than my head. Sugar is big news in Harajuku as long as it is colourful and fun!

There are streets of vintage stores, cute independent shops, kiddyland which will fulfil all your Rilakkuma desires, and even a tamagotchi department store! We spent hours gawking at all the goodies you wouldn’t find anywhere else in the world – and I even contemplated getting me and my dog matching outfits.
