Harajuku! My favorite place in Japan! I felt like I was right at home in Harajuku, I was surronded by my fellow fashionistas, and they enjoyed my funkier take on fashion as well! If you are fashion blogger, or someone who just enjoys odd and quirky things, you definitely have to visit Harajuku!

But before heading to the wonderful world of Harajuku, my friends and I went to the Shibuya crossing and watched as a horde of people crossed the street (not gonna lie, we were total tourists and crossed the street several times trying to get that perfect picture). Once we got our tourist pictures in, it was time to eat! While wandering Shibuya we happened upon a ramen shop with vending machine ordering. It was super cool and convenient (as there was English on the menu). I decided to get the weirdest ramen on the menu, butter and garlic ramen. Man, was it good but so unhealthy! I could feel my arteries clogging as I ate it. Once our bellies were nice and full, it was time to grab a quick cup of coffee in an adorable coffee shop.

After being decently caffeinated, it was onto Laforet in Harajuku. And oh, was it wonderful! I made sure to explore every floor, and walk by every little store and vendor. My favorite shop was Paris House. They had the sweetest workers, and even though we did not speak the same language we bonded immediately and were exchanging "Kawaiis". I got a super cute purse and matching friendship necklaces for my friend and myself, but looking back I  wish I had actually bought more! I wish I had bought more from Paris House, and Laforet in general. While some of the stores were pretty pricey, looking back I now realize a lot of the items were exclusive for the store and totally worth it, as I don't think I will find anything similar in the States. Oh well, hindsight is 20/20.

After exploring the Laforet department store, it was time to wander Harajuku itself and discover all the little shops. And oh boy, were there a lot of little shops! I would have loved to spend the whole day wandering Harajuku, but my friends were hungry and my feet were tired (wearing heeled boots may have super cute, but maybe not the best idea) so it was time to head back to our place and prepare for our early start the next day.

I seriously loved Harajuku, and next time I go to Japan (hopefully soon!), I plan to spend a whole day shopping and finding all the quirky areas. Prepare for another Japan post this week. TTFN, ta ta for now.
