When I first bought my Dolly magazine at Bunka’s bookshop, I soon became interested to dolls (particularly, Blythe). I researched about it a bit through google and found out about Junie Moon and its actual shop near Shibuya. I thought of going before, but I knew I’d just make myself depressed at looking at those dolls I could not have. But now, I have Kumiko with me (and still recovering at the price I bought it for) so you could say, I can already go and visit the shop without having depressing thoughts, haha!
One random day, I just posted a question on Junie Moon English‘s facebook wall regarding its opening and closing hours. Then I realized, if I were to go anyway.. I should also take photos! And I could already imagine how pretty the Junie Moon shop will be in real life, basing from their cute websites. I knew that taking photographs would require getting a permission, so I humbly asked if I could (just so I could post those here and share my Junie Moon experience with my readers who are silent readers.. ahaha). And so I was informed to email this certain person. Thank you so much Angel-san and Junie Moon staffers for accommodating the little me~! I was so surprised that this was also considered as having a press person feature your shop (hence, the press id I posted on my previous entry). It was such a privilege for a blogger like me!
Going there wasn’t easy. It was my first time in Daikanyama. The weather in Japan has been unpredictable lately.. it rains, then it gets super hot, and the humidity is making me cranky. As expected, I got lost during my “journey” to Junie Moon. If you got the joke, don’t judge my corny humor, hahaha.
If you’re planning to visit this lovely shop, this page will be your savior. I followed the Daikanyama route. You just have to walk far and cross many (and mini) pedestrian lanes.
When I got inside the shop, I immediately introduced myself as Kaira, the one who emailed Angel-san regarding taking photos. The girls were kind~! They let me take photos of the dolls freely.. and before I realized it, I was having my own world. Haha!
First photo I took in the shop. SO LITTLE!
This certain doll reminds me of Katy Perry.
I suck at braiding dolls’ hair.. : ( I tried it a couple of times.. and I gave up! Haha
Good thing there were freebies! If there weren’t, I would have left the store empty-handed. Haha!
Doll’s hair on the left most <3
Actually, the dolls are not on sale. Only the dresses! Around 1k yen or so~
Omg how did they do that @_@
(haven’t experimented with Kumiko’s head..)
Everyone’s so fashionable! Reminds me of Harajuku : )
My doll needs this! Haha
Blythe graphic art is awesome! Very inspirational

Blue hair I’d like to try someday.. in my dreams. Haha
Such a cutieeee! Only for 3,000 yen or so ~

Magical, magical place. I forgot all my worries here : )

Awesome graphic stuff

Bye bye… : (
Would you like a tour?
I made a “tour” video. Music by my brother’s old band (found it randomly in iTunes). Didn’t want any copyright complications so I had to use what I can legally show off to the world (especially this is related to a company). ^^
Watch in HD for pure eye candy!
Sharing my love for Blythe + my Junie Moon admiration to others,
