#JESSICAINTOKYO | DAY 3 | HARAJUKU, FOOD, CALBEE, GENKI SUSHI

18TH MAY 2015

HELLO!
As you can see from the title of this post, we visited Harajuku (again) on the third day of our trip! (Just in case you didn't know, we already went to Harajuku on the 1st day of our trip, more about it HERE) I'm going to show you MORE on different amazing parts of Harajuku today! :D

hehehe my #ootd 

P1220536
Mummy also wants to take #ootd shots! :P 

P1220537
Hooooomaiiigoshhhh look at the crowd in the train station! 10am-10.30am is always their peak hour on weekdays! 

P1220538
Breakfast in Doutor at Harajuku!! ^_^ 

P1220539
We ordered the breakfast set which costs 390YEN!! (This breakfast set is only available until 10.30am heh) 

P1220543
Each breakfast set also comes with a drink of your choice!! Mummy got herself a cup of hot latte. 

P1220545
And I got myself a glass of iced-coffee!! I'm not a person who usually take cold beverages in the morning BUT IN TOKYO, iced-coffee is too hard to resist!!! :X

Looks normal? Not quite on the inside! The ingredients thrown between these fluffy buns couldn't be any fresher.

Hehe went to Nike store and check out some cool shoes. 

P1220567
Oh hi there, Nike Huaraches! Why aren't you guys for sale?! 

P1220574
Then Melanie came to meet us for lunch, yay!

P1220577
She brought us to Ichiran 一兰, which is her favourite ramen shop in Japan. Ichiran is pretty popular in Tokyo as there are quite a lot of branches everywhere!! However, Ichiran Ramen only serves one type of ramen, which is the tonkotsu ramen!

P1220584
Yes, you need to make an order and pay for it with the machine outside the restaurant before entering.

P1220588
After that, remember to collect your tickets from the machine!

P1220590
Am I the only one who thinks that this order chit actually looks cute?

P1220591
The best thing about Ichiran is that you can choose how strong and how spicy you want the broth to be. 

P1220592
This board will show you the availability of seats.

P1220593

P1220604
So basically we were seated in a row. And there's a partition in between every seat to keep you focused on the ramen. The partition is movable, though the Japanese usually prefer having their private space while dining here.

P1220608
Melanie said she can never have a bowl of ramen without a hard-boiled egg! 

P1220615
Melanie's. 

P1220617
Mine!!!
Richness ✓
Flavour strength ✓
Pork slices ✓
Texture of the noodles ✓
It's so good that it will make you feel like coming back for another bask in its goodness.

P1220621
Shopping in WEGO after lunch! 

P1220627

P1220630

P1220626 
LOVE this store so much!

P1220633

P1220635
Stumbled upon this crepe shop in Harajuku as we were walking along the streets!

P1220636
So many options to choose from!! 

P1220646

P1220647
The first and also the last crepe I had in Tokyo. Yes it looks appealing as hell, but the actual taste and feel of the crepe was, unfortunately, utterly disappointing :/

P1220651
Everything in this underground shop is only 390yen (which is approx. RM12) 

P1220652
Lots of cute iPhone casings! 

P1220662
You will also be able to find a lot of vintage clothing and accessories here! 

P1220666

P1220675
Went to MONKI and got myself a denim skirt (the one I'm wearing in the photo) hehe! 

P1220668
KIDDYLAND (it's the name of the shop lol)- a toy paradise for everyone (yup, not just the kids). They sell a lot of unique and delicate stuffs here, but the prices aren't cheap :/  

P1220669

P1220682
Why does everything seem so kawaii in Japan?!?! 

P1220683
Cute and trendy socks for sale! *lelong lelong!*

P1220685
I love this shop so much!!!! But everything is quite pricey! :( 

P1220686
Apparently, this is one of the largest Daiso shops in central Tokyo! 

P1220711

P1220739
Calbee potato chips - the best!!!

P1220726
Sinful indulgence. 

P1220727
SO GOOD!!! 

P1220738

P1220750
Many locals are queuing up for the Zakuzaku Softcream so we decided to give it a try too hahahah! 

P1220764
The ice-cream was super smooth and milky (perhaps a little too milky for me) :/ 

P1220762
Got myself a cream stick too! 

P1220765
Ok this was good! The outer layer was really crispy (as I'd imagined) and the inside was filled with soft, creamy custard! 

P1220761 

P1220768
Spotted this shop selling (cute and expensive) dogs apparels and accessories!!!! The cheapest piece that I can find is RM90 lolllll.

P1220716

P1220771
At night, we walked from Harajuku to Shibuya for Genki Sushi!! 

P1220772
Where to find cheap and nice sushi in Tokyo?
Guys, GENKI SUSHI IS THE WAY TO GO. The price of a plate of sushi ranges from 120yen to 240yen, depending on what you order of course.

P1220773 

P1220777
Browse the menu and place your order from the device. (English, Chinese, Korean menu available!) 

P1220779

P1220783
The food you order will be served on a tray and delivered right straight to you with the conveyor belt. The service was super efficient!! 

P1220784
Chawanmushi. 

P1220786

P1220787
It's crazy how this plate of fresh salmon sushi only costs 120yen!!!!!

P1220801

P1220798
Fried squids. 

P1220799
Yup, besides sushi, they serve udon as well!

P1220800
Ikura and Uni! It was first time having uni and the taste was....fishy lol. I don't know, it somehow tasted quite weird for me. :X 

P1220790
Tempura sushi. 

P1220791

P1220793
Me with my sushi!!!

After dinner, we walked back to our apartment, feeling all satisfied and grateful.

I kept thinking to myself:

    I'm planning to go to Japan with my family, and thanks to these Tokyo blog I get to know which best place to eat and shop. This is really helpful to me, because you wrote down all the address, so it's easier for ppl to find.*\(^o^)/* I really hope to get to win this giveaway. I'm really curious how the Calbee french fries taste, and I think for the melody mask, the packaging is so cute(≧∇≦)..
