Japan Trip in 30 Photos
One week in Japan is too short! Took the Shinkansen to Kyoto on the last two days and already missing Tokyo already. I’m going to share more photos of Harajuku (see my favourite thrift shop), Omotesando and Daikanyama. Although the weather was extremely blistering hot, July is a good month to visit Japan if you’re going after sales. When it’s sales period in Japan it really brings out the bargain warrior in you. Also don’t forget to check out brands that are not usually available in Singapore. One flagship store that really caught my attention is Saturday by Kate Spade. I can’t believe I just said “Kate Spade” but the products are actually really adorable and versatile. Another shop I love is of course Opening Ceremony. They have a newly opened location in Omotesando, and also two outlets in Shinjuku station, one for accessories and another one for ready-to-wear. A lot of Kenzo items and also special collaborations like the one with Kiko Mizuhara.
Daikanyama is a shopping area many people recommended. The T-side garden is a must-go for books, coffee and simply to people watch.
The trip ended with a short visit to Kyoto. We explored many shrines and also the bamboo forest which was amazing naturally. Kyoto is truly for the people who are into the culture and heritage aspect of Japan, the whole city still feels like the old Japan and way more laid-back than the bustling Tokyo.
Midori Sushi at Shibuya requires a bit of queue-ing, but it’s worth it! www.sushinomidori.co.jp
