Things To Do in Harajuku by OurKawaii.Tokyo

Hello everyone!

After months of hard work, I am just so proud to present & share our FIRST episode for the “Our Kawaii Tokyo” video series!

If we’re talking about “kawaii”, it is just appropriate to start with HARAJUKU (a.k.a. world’s cutest place)… right? 🙂

Random Life Updates + What To Do When You Feel Unmotivated

Hello everybody!

First of all, I was so surprised by the feedback I got about my last post (Kaila gives advice to a girl who is feeling hopeless). I’m very happy to know that some people found it useful / relatable as they are experiencing the same thing. *HUGS EVERYONE*

These past few weeks have been really crazy from my side. I have like a mountain of things to do but my body isn’t cooperating well. I feel more tired than the usual and I just feel like reading e-books because physically, that’s the only activity I feel I could do (for now haha. go eyes lolol). ;_; I downloaded this app called “scribd” and gave it a try… and I’ve been reading books / listening to audiobooks like crazy!! Here’s my testimonial on facebook hahahaha. <3

So I was feeling unattractive a few days ago… so I got my emergency make-up kit (haha) +flat iron to transform myself.

My mood became so much better haha. Though I also like myself with just moisturizer on, getting girly / dolled up does really make wonders!

And it’s always better when I wear my favorite gudetama top!! Hehe <3

:happy:

After experiencing a so-so week of ups and downs.. I finally got to write down what I did to keep myself sane with all my responsibilities / overflowing tasks. Still, I’m thankful for everything!

D.I.Y. Kawaii Harajuku Experience Itinerary by Rainbowholic

Hello Rainbowholic friends! Ohayou from Japan!  :heart: 元気?

I just want to tell you guys about this ambitious project I have been working on!

kawaii copy

For the past 3 years here in Japan, I have been touring close friends from Manila (and sometimes, online world) and bringing them to “kawaii” places here in Tokyo.

As you all know, I really enjoy strolling around and doing tourist-y things even though I already live here in Japan. Also, I get sooooo many questions about “Where to go in Harajuku, Kaila?” .. “Where to take purikura?” “Where is 6% DokiDoki?”…#truth hahaha

It seems like the list of  things to do in Harajuku is still not enough to cover everything. Honestly, when I go to Harajuku with a friend who is a tourist, sometimes I don’t know where to start because THEREEE are so many places and activities to do!

Remember the Harajuku Reporter I did before for NHK World Kawaii International program? I interviewed a LOT of foreigners about what they think of Harajuku / what’s their itinerary. Didn’t realize that the research I would get from that (lololol) would be applied to the ~kawaii tours~.

There was a time during Sakura season that I had to bring 3 (or 4??) friends in separate days to Harajuku alone! I was almost in Harajuku for a week lolololol :))

:blush:

So there, I will first cover Harajuku (there might be 5 parts) and maybe later on, I can do one for Shinjuku (where I used to study Nihongo), Shibuya, Akihabara.. and other オススメ / recommended places in Tokyo.

For some reason, it is also my dream to publish a book about my kawaii recommendations / activities here in Tokyo. Figured I shouldn’t wait for a publisher / collaborator to actualize this grand idea of mine. Should just make my own online book through a blogging platform, lol.

So there, I hope you will wait for it!

If you have questions or suggestions, please do leave your comments here. ありがちゅー!
