Tokyo Trip 11/10: Ikebukuro & Ginza Sanrio Stores, Shinjuku Visual Kei Stores

The 10th was our last full day in Japan, and we wouldn’t have time to do anything the next day before leaving for the airport, so we both did some last minute shopping. First we went to Sanrio Gift Gate in Ikebukuro, as I wanted to buy presents for Dorian and Tegan. I knew I … More Tokyo Trip 11/10: Ikebukuro & Ginza Sanrio Stores, Shinjuku Visual Kei Stores

Tokyo Trip 11/09: Harajuku Conomi, KIDDY LAND, Shibuya Zeal Link, KAMIJO x Artemis Classic @ Marui Jam

First we went to Harajuku – the station had this cute advertisement for the Wii U Animal Crossing amiibo game! We went down Takeshita dori again, and I bought a seifuku ribbon and sunglasses from Paris Kids. Then we looked in Conomi, a shop that sells seifuku and other school items. I wanted to buy … More Tokyo Trip 11/09: Harajuku Conomi, KIDDY LAND, Shibuya Zeal Link, KAMIJO x Artemis Classic @ Marui Jam

Tokyo Trip 11/08: Ikebukuro Brand X, MEJIBRAY Instore Event @ Shinjuku Like an Edison

Started the day in Ikebukuro. It was raining quite a bit for most of the day, and I didn’t want to risk getting my camera wet or attempt holding it and an umbrella at the same time, so I didn’t take many photos. We went to Brand X and I picked up some Lycaon Last … More Tokyo Trip 11/08: Ikebukuro Brand X, MEJIBRAY Instore Event @ Shinjuku Like an Edison

Tokyo Trip 11/07: Shinjuku (Marui Annex, Little Hearts, Alice in Wonderland Restaurant)

By the 7th, I still hadn’t bought any clothes! So we headed to Marui Annex in Shinjuku to go clothes shopping! I saw some things I quite liked (KERA Shop had nice earrings, but a lot of the designs were clip-ons) and I tried one item on, but I didn’t buy anything in the end. … More Tokyo Trip 11/07: Shinjuku (Marui Annex, Little Hearts, Alice in Wonderland Restaurant)

Tokyo Trip 11/06 Part 2: ーLycaon LAST LIVEー『MASOCHIST RED OBSCURA Vol.2 -endroll-』@ Akasaka BLITZ

It was time to go to Akasaka BLITZ for the final of Lycaon’s『MASOCHIST RED OBSCURA Vol.2 -endroll-』tour; their last live. I went by myself to Akasaka, and it was the first time I’d been alone in Tokyo. I made new friends in the ticket line, but my ticket number was lower and I went in … More Tokyo Trip 11/06 Part 2: ーLycaon LAST LIVEー『MASOCHIST RED OBSCURA Vol.2 -endroll-』@ Akasaka BLITZ

Tokyo Trip 11/06 Part 1: Shibuya 109, Grimoire, NUDE N’ RUDE

As I was going to NUDE N’ RUDE at 3pm to pick up my earrings, we decided to do more shopping in Shibuya rather than going anywhere else in the morning/early afternoon. First up, Shibuya 109. After trying some of Steph’s pizza at the Alice restaurant the day before, I had a pizza craving! Luckily, … More Tokyo Trip 11/06 Part 1: Shibuya 109, Grimoire, NUDE N’ RUDE

Tokyo Trip 11/05: Shibuya (NUDE N’ RUDE, Tower Records, PARCO, Disney Store, Alice in wonderland Restaurant)

Our first stop in Shibuya was NUDE N’ RUDE: a store that sells items from various brands, including MERRY hopping ZOO. I wanted to buy a pair of their blue tassel earrings to wear to the Lycaon live the next day, but they only had 1 pair, and I didn’t like the design. The staff … More Tokyo Trip 11/05: Shibuya (NUDE N’ RUDE, Tower Records, PARCO, Disney Store, Alice in wonderland Restaurant)

The closest station is Mitaka Station – from here it’s around a 10-15 minute walk to the Museum, and there’s also a local bus … More Tokyo Trip 11/04: Studio Ghibli Museum, Shinjuku Visual Kei Stores

Tokyo Trip 11/03: Akihabara, Artemis Classic, Harajuku Closet Child

First stop of the day was Akihabara, as Steph wanted to go to Kotobukiya. Kotobukiya was huge, and had lots of anime merchandise, but also Western film and comic figures. There were also Star Wars and Studio Ghibli items, which I found more interesting as I’m not really interested in anime or comics! Of course … More Tokyo Trip 11/03: Akihabara, Artemis Classic, Harajuku Closet Child

Tokyo Trip 11/02: Closet Child Shinjuku, vkdb presents「Influence loop vol.2」@ Takadanobaba AREA

As we got back quite late from Vampire Cafe the night before, we slept in on the 2nd and went out later in the morning. We went to Shinjuku for the first time to do some shopping. Although I think the only store we ended up looking in was the gothic/lolita/punk Closet Child. This branch has … More Tokyo Trip 11/02: Closet Child Shinjuku, vkdb presents「Influence loop vol.2」@ Takadanobaba AREA
