JAPAN VLOG 8 // REAL LIFE MARIO KART IN TOKYO & GIANT Cotton Candy in Harajuku!


GUYS, I WENT MARIO KARTING IN TOKYO. ACTUAL. MARIO. KARTING.

First up in today’s vlog, we headed to Harajuku to explore the famous Takeshita Street (you know, the one famous for the adorably costumed Harajuku girls!) and visit Totti Candy Factory to try one of their super famous (and SO Insta-worthy) giant rainbow cotton candy. We call it Fairy Floss in Australia hehe 😇

Then we met up with my friend Yuma to go MARIO KARTING. This is an actual thing you can do in Tokyo - Maricar run tours around Tokyo where you dress up as a Mario character and you LITERALLY go go-karting around the city. There are no helmets and no seat belts (so in other words, it’s bloody terrifying), but it is SO. MUCH. FUN. Just keep in mind that you’ll need an international driver’s licence to do it!

Hope you guys enjoy this travel vlog, it was one of my favourite days from the trip! If you’re still reading this, let me know in the comments below which Mario character you’d dress up as!

Watch the craziness below!

JAPAN VLOG 7 // First Time at LUSH SPA & Visiting a Japanese Supermarket!


UM, POSSIBLY THE COOLEST SPA IN JAPAN.

So we don’t have Lush Spas in Australia, but they are definitely a must visit if you go to Tokyo and are a Lush fan! In today’s Japan vlog, we went to the one in Daikanyama to treat ourselves to the Tailor Made package, which includes a 30 minute deep tissue massage and a special rum (YES, rum lol) infused tea and cookie afterwards. #bliss

Jess and I then visited a Japanese supermarket and while there were a few differences between Japan and Australia… once you’ve been to one supermarket, you’ve been to them all (except their ready meals are ON POINT).

We then headed back to Shibuya to do some shopping at Its’ Demo (where I bought POKEMON MAKEUP - whatttt) and Bershka, and take Purikura photobooth stickers!
