This is the second week now. Break from Akihabara, lets visit some other places.
Starting with Harajuku, where you’ll find the latest fashion trends and girls in gothic lolita walking around the streets. Then moving on to wandering the streets of Shinjuku. Ending with a pleasant dinner at the Alice in Wonderland cafe.
First off, we take a trip to Harajuku’s Volks Showroom/Tenshi no Sumika
Inside are a lot of beautiful SDs… like how Volks Akihabara is to Dollfie Dream, Harajuku’s Volks is to Super Dollfies.
Streets of Harajuku
Takeshita Street, the main fashion street of Harajuku

More streets of Harajuku
We went to eat, of course, ramen for lunch
Cool looking vending machine
We backtracked to the Evangelion store
The mirrors were too awesome. This calls for… PANORAMA SHOT! (crappy one though!)
A gothic lolita store
I bought a neko hoodie. The shop owner made us make funny poses for the camera.
Shinjuku station is a nightmare… (and also the world’s largest subway station)
Studio Alta, a large shopping complex. Went in just to check out the Volks store at the top, but didn’t end up taking any pictures
Wandering the streets of Shinjuku. A long wandering…
After getting a bit lost, we found our destination; the HALC building
In the basement was the wonderful Alice in Wonderland cafe!
Their menu was pretty stylish
Some Hello Kitty collab was happening
The waitresses were in Alice cosplays and even let me take her pic for free (unlike them money-sucking Akiba maids)
