Shopping In Harajuku's Takeshita Street & Trying Japanese Kit Kats! // Solo Travel Japan


If it's your first time to Tokyo, shopping in Harajuku's famous Takeshita Street (or Takeshita-dori) is a must-do - full of kawaii fashion boutiques and instagrammable eateries, be prepared for a big day out in this crowded shopping strip!

After two attempts this trip, I FINALLY made it to Takeshita Street for a day of beauty and clothing shopping (plus, I may have bought a couple of cheeky giveaway items - stay tuned!).

If adorable, insta-worthy foods are your thing, I also went to Eddy's Ice Cream shop for the CUTEST cone, and if that wasn't enough sugar, stay tuned to the end of the video where I taste-test eight Japanese Kit Kat flavours (including, sake and WASABI. Yes.).

The "Brooklyn Of Tokyo", Daikanyama! // Solo Travel Japan


In today's Japan vlog, I head to the upmarket district of Daikanyama - known as the 'Brooklyn of Tokyo'!

I may not have been to Brooklyn before, but the upmarket, effortlessly cool vibe of Daikanyama definitely transported me there - with a tonne of cute boutiques and backstreets, and the most gorgeous bookstore I've ever seen, if you have a spare day in Tokyo and want a relaxing district to explore, look no further.

But before I headed there, I had to make a stop at a dentist in Aoyama - you never expect to do something as mundane as go to the DENTIST while you're on holiday in Tokyo, but it was sooo lucky that I was able to find an english-speaking clinic!

A Day Trip To Kyoto & Kiyomizudera Temple!


One day in Kyoto is never enough, but for my fifth visit to this gorgeous city, I decided to spend it at my absolute favourite temple in Japan - Kiyomizudera.

The views of Kyoto from atop this World Heritage Listed Site are absolutely breathtaking - even on my fifth trip to Kiyomizudera (I've now been in every season!), it still completely blew me away! 

If you're currently researching a trip to Japan, put Kiyomizudera on your itinerary - it's my favourite spot in Kyoto and the area has everything you'd want in a day trip to this cultural city; amazing photo opportunities, great souvenir shopping (including TWO Studio Ghibli stores!) and endless restaurant choices!
