Do you know Harajuku Fashion? We can find something called ‘Kawaii culture’ in Japan. Today I would like to show you some restaurants and apparel shops which are popular and great examples of Kawaii culture. Some celebrities such as Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Peco&Ryuucheru have become well-known, both in Japan and also abroad, for wearing fashion that we could classify as cute or Kawaii. This time I would like to introduce some shops and restaurants that I enjoy and I would like you to visit if you have the chance to come to Japan.

There are so many shops I want to talk to you about, so these Harajuku series will be split into 3 parts. Vol.1’Takeshita Street’. This is the best-known area in Harajuku. Both Japanese and foreigners can often be seen on this street looking at the fashionable shops in which ‘Kawaii’tends to be a key element.
Vol.2’Ura Harajuku’. These are the back streets of Harajuku. They are less crowded than Takeshita and so many iconic Harajuku brands have their shops there.
Vol.3Laforet. This is a shopping centre that has gathered fashionable apparel shops in Harajuku since the 1970s.

Vol.1 Takeshita Street

This is the first shop I want to show you. They sell new clothes and accessories on the first floor and used items on the second one. Both of them are very cute and quite affordable. I really like the decorations in the shop, they have so many ponies and Furbbies. It is a mixture of Kawaii fashion and 80s American pop culture. I often go to this shop!

This is the next shop I want to show you. They sell very colourful clothes, socks and leggings. I think it is a great option if you are trying to get Kawaii clothes at really affordable prices. I recently bought one of their Power Puff Girls collaboration oversized T-shirts!

I also want to show you a Kawaii Restaurant: Pom Pom Purin’s restaurant!
As you can see in the pictures, both the food and the interior of this restaurant are nice and cute. Pom Pom Purin is a Sanrio character that once became the Sanrio number 1 popular character in Japan, beating Hello Kitty in that occasion.
