2016 Spring Break in Tokyo: Lunch at Harajuku and then Dessert at Takeshita Street

After a very interesting and quick visit to Meiji Jingu Shrine, off we went back to Harajuku for lunch.

Harajuku refers to the area around Tokyo's Harajuku Station, which is between Shinjuku and Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. It is the center of Japan's most extreme teenage cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for adults and some historic sights.

And since it had been days since we've been eating Japanese food (not that we were complaining!), we had pasta for a change.

And it was gooood! ♥

After lunch, our next stop, Takeshita Street.

The focal point of Harajuku's teenage culture is Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street) and its side streets, which are lined by many trendy shops, fashion boutiques, used clothes stores, crepe stands and fast food outlets geared towards the fashion and trend conscious teens.

Shops along Takeshita Dori tend to be open daily from 11:00 to 20:00.
The symbol of Harajuku and birthplace of many of Japan's fashion trends, Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street) is a narrow, roughly 400 meter long street lined by shops, boutiques, cafes and fast food outlets targeting Tokyo's teenagers. Because of the street's popularity, it becomes extremely busy and crowded on the weekends. Interesting shops and restaurants can also be found along some of the side streets.

And guess what? We were able to try the famous crepes there too!

And it was so, so, soooo good! Now are you convinced that you should visit this street? Yes you should!
