Tokyo Diaries: Part One




Kiddy Land on Omotesando, five floors of kawaii goodness. Hello Kitty, Rilakkuma, Totoro, you name it! I bought a few too many things. I wish I could've brought home that life-size Kiki and Lala on a unicorn, but instead I settled for a pair of unicorn slippers (which I bought at Sanrio, in Harajuku).




Ra.a.g.f. (Rabbit And Grow Fat) in Harajuku, where you can feed and play with bunnies, while you enjoy a cup of tea. You take off your shoes upon entering, and are given your choice of beverage and a dish of veggies for the rabbits. Bunnies are let out to run around and socialize for fifteen minutes at a time, allowing all of them lots of love and attention. We fell in love with this giant lady, who was so friendly and funny.


Pancake Days, because Bobby needed a mid-day pancake pick-me-up. Shouldn't every stack of pancakes have a smiley face and a triumphant flag?

Stumbled upon Oui, Ayano Ruban, where I met this adorable gal



Kitties everywhere, at Nyafe Melange cat café. It was raining, so we headed upstairs to this little cat paradise. The twins in the bucket were killing me! We also left with some kitty donuts






Just in case I didn't stand out enough as a tourist, I brought along my Kate Spade "Hello Tokyo" clutch, which I paired with one of my favorite vintage dresses, a vintage scarf, and my Nine West "Tasha" sandals...plus an umbrella we picked up at a convenience store, since it started raining while we were out. Even in the rain, our first full day in Tokyo was perfect.

  6. Oh my god, how was I not aware that bunny cafes are a thing? I totally missed out on that when I was in Tokyo! I'm in Kyoto at the moment, and this post makes me want to pop back up to Tokyo!

  13. Oh my goodness, the cat and bunny cafes look and sound like such a dream! The floppy-eared bunny you posted about looks almost exactly like my previous bunny, Little Bear. Did you have to make reservations weeks/months in advance of your visit? I tried to visit a cat cafe in Europe earlier this year, but their reservations were 6 months in advance...

  16. Japan never use to be on my list of places to go, but after following your adventures on instagram and seeing the photos you've been posting here I've never wanted to go more than I do right now!

    Seems like a very different fun and interesting place, maybe some day :]

  19. So jealous of those unicorn slippers! I was in Harajuku, why didn't I go to the Sanrio store?! Ditto the rabbit café! Ugh, regrets! Kiddyland was amazing and weirdly, I found something unkiddy-like there: Cure Natural Aqua gel. The most amazing purchase I made in Tokyo, which is saying something, since all purchases in Tokyo were amazing in their own right!

    Can't wait for the second installment!
