as Lolita and as big lover of japanese (street) fashion it was crystal clear that we will visit the famous Takeshita Dori / Takeshita Street in Harajuku during our stay in Japan. We visited Takeshita Dori twice as we were in Japan and I left each time a lot of money there.. ^__^6
Takeshita Dori is located directly across the JR Easts Harajuku Station's exit and is lined with fashion boutiques and cafes. It's the heartland for cute "kawaii" and young fashion and most of the shops are good at price.

With one shop I felt also really in love with: Harajuku Smile Camp.
Harajuku Smile Camp is a cute store which offers a wide range of cute/kawaii clothes and accessories which works perfekt with for example Sweet Lolita, Fairy Kei and Decora Kei.

When visiting Harajuku and it's Takeshita Dori you have to make a break for eating crepes and other sweets. The probably most famous crepe stand is "Marion crêpe" which opened already in 1976 and do not only sell crepes but also f. e. Hello Kitty styled sweet sandwiches with green tea ice inside:
|om nom nom - wasn't that easy to ate this sandwich without getting dirty CF|
For me, Takeshita Dori was like paradise - a wide range of cute clothes to affordable prices. I definitely will visit Takeshita Dori again when Im next time in Japan..
