Shopping Around Tokyo

itscamilleco.com2013062829

When you’ve been walking a lot for consecutive days, sneakers tend to call out to you. These are actually the same pair of sneakers I wore on my “Flying Without Wings” post, except here, I took the wings out. I bought them just a day before these photos were taken at the Adidas store in Shibuya. My feet were already so sore from all the walking so I just had to use them right away. Nothing beats a good pair of sneakers!

So what’s the theme of my outfit? Cool and casual–just the perfect get-up for a day of shopping around Tokyo. My mom, sister and I are quite the shopaholics so we’ve allotted time for shopping everyday. This day though, this day was special. We had nothing else on our itinerary but SHOPPING. Woot! You know what that means, right? I’ve got my battle gear on! Ready to shop ’til I drop!

The famous places to shop at while in Tokyo are Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku, Ginza and Omotesando. Here’s a photo dump all these places plus a few snapshots of fascinating people I was able to sneakily take photos of during my stay in Tokyo. I’ll be injecting a few photos of our food as well just to make you jealous. Har har!

This is the statue of Hachiko, a beloved dog in Japan who got famous for his loyalty to his owner. It’s said that everyday, for nine years, Hachiko waited in front of the Shibuya station for his owner to return. Awwww.

itscamilleco.com2013062820

This guy on the other hand is waiting for someone else. LOL! Such a cool get-up!

itscamilleco.com2013062801

How cute is this! Takeshita Street is located near Harajuku. It’s also known as Cat Street.

itscamilleco.com2013062804

The stuff here are mostly trendy and funky. Think wild prints, bright colors and interesting textures.

itscamilleco.com2013062802

Wolfgang Puck’s Wolfgang Express is also located here so if you need a little break from all the Japanese food, you can give this restaurant a try.

The famous crepes!

itscamilleco.com2013062807

Banana nutella crepe for me please!

itscamilleco.com2013062805

I told you the stuff here are funky. Now, if this isn’t funky enough for you, I don’t know what is!

itscamilleco.com2013062808
itscamilleco.com2013062809

Just a few steps away from Takeshita Dori is Harajuki Street.

itscamilleco.com2013062812

Aside from shopping, this is also a great place to go people watching. Look at her! I love her hair color and the contrast it makes with the flower crown she has on!

itscamilleco.com2013062813
itscamilleco.com2013062814

It’s easy to go crazy shopping at these stores! These are definitely much more my cup of tea than the stores over at Takeshita.

itscamilleco.com2013062816

Something for the men out there.

itscamilleco.com2013062815

For the artsy-fartsies.

itscamilleco.com2013062817

Laforet has a great selection of both foreign and local high-street brands. Young fashionistas would love shopping here!

The new Tokyu Plaza.

Not too obvious that she loves hot pink, right?

itscamilleco.com2013062835

I found this mall so cool!! No need for escalators! Although there are escalators on every other floor. This is Omotesando Hills.

itscamilleco.com2013062837

Omotesando and Ginza are the best places to shop at for luxury brands.

itscamilleco.com2013062839

Time for a little Ben & Jerry’s break!

itscamilleco.com2013062836

I love her!

Back at Shibuya.

itscamilleco.com2013062841
itscamilleco.com2013062843

Shibuya 109–the best place to shop at for Japanese high-street brands.

itscamilleco.com2013062844

Look at their hair! So jealous!

Shinjuku has the best department stores like Mitsukoshi, Takashimaya and Matsuya. They have a nice selection of luxury brands as well.

itscamilleco.com2013062840

Here’s another photo of the Shibuya crossing. I remember when I first visited Japan years ago, I was so amazed to finally stand in front of this famous landmark. I can’t wait to visit you again! Tokyo, you will be missed.

    Enjoyed the photos! It’s great how your outfit still made you stand out. I love how your shoes are the statement piece of the entire ensemble. I’d also like to give you a high-five for your choice of top! I like the blue streaks- a subtle edge of artsy.

    Hi Camille :)) I want to go to Japan too :) Btw, are you here in Manila na? i want to ask if you do ternos (filipiñana dress), the shoulder caps only? I want to have one kasi for our event in school. I just have no idea what to wear and where to buy kasi e :D. And if possible, how much would it cost me if i try to buy/design from you?
    Thanks :*
    Love lots :*

      Hi Sara! Yes I am. We’ve made ternos before but I think they might be a little expensive for school. You can inquire through my assistant if you want :) 09175302776

    It all looks like a very well planned cultural fashion sight-seeing short trip (^__^).
    Was it a one day short trip? – Because this is actually on my to-do-list when i am back in Manila next year.
    If you got any special travelling tips, let me know <3

    Is Wolfgang Puck's Wolfgang Express a German restaurant? – pretty much sounds like one. I think it's quite funny to visit German restaurants in Asia (and i wonder if they would understand if you talk German to them ^3^).

    Lovely greetings from Germany
