Bonsai Christmas!

We explored the more Western parts of Tokyo first (Harajuku, Shinjuku, etc.). There's a lot of scenery in Tokyo. Anywhere you walk, you'll see something beautiful. This is why I like walking more than taking the subway. (Also, the subway system is very complicated. Once you figure it out, you'll be set for life with learning subway systems. I'm proud to say I now know how to use the Tokyo subway!)

Some photos:

Passing by the tower on the way to the subway!

We discovered out favorite place to eat: Yoshinoya. There's a HUGE orange sign, and there's one in almost every neighborhood. You can't miss it.

They have this rice with kimchi soup that's that's stupidly good. We went here every morning we were in town and I got the same thing every time. Yum!

In Harajuku, we stopped by Yoyogi Park, where a lot of locals come to hang out. We just walked/sat around and watched people. It was cool!

H&M dress, BCBGMaxAzria scarf, TART leggings (Nord. Rack), Christian Siriano for Payless boots, Zara drawstring pouch w/ foxtail (random boutique in Shibuya), Burberry raincoat

This was also where we discovered the bonsai-turned-Christmas tree! Hehehe I thought it was cute.

They sell EVERYTHING through vending machines. It's weird... but doesn't make it any less delicious!

Strawberry, bananas, whipped cream, chocolate sauce! Uhm, could there BE a better combination!?

And of course, like Hong Kong, there's a lot of shopping in Tokyo. This a Takeshita-Dori street in Harajuku. It has a lot of cute stores! I had to come back here again another day! :) Bought a lot of good stuff! Thanks for reading. ;)
