Since it was crazy crowded to walk around at Harajuku on a Sunday, we came back the next day. Monday - when everywhere is less crowded but still crowded. Because its Tokyo.
If there's one thing Takeshita Street is famous for, its definitely the Harajuku Crepes.
Look at all the choices! There's tooooooo many - we had a hard time deciding what to get. There are about 4 or more Harajuku Crepe shops at Takeshita Street, but we decided to give this one a shot because I love pink lol. Japan is also famous for their accurate plastic food!
Our crepe! I forgot what was inside; I think there were strawberries, banana, mini cheesecake, ice cream, and whipped cream :D
The crowd is less right?!?! (compared to my previous post photos) I could breathe and cam whore lol.

At Omotesando, I had to stop by Kiddy Land xD
There were many floors filled with different cartoon characters and toys but I was most interested in the top floor - Hello Kitty and Rilakkuma!
Rilakkuma themed toilet lol.
Was it expensive? - Very ><
Kiddy Land is right beside Cat Street; from there you can walk to Shibuya. That's what we did.
Cat Street is filled with independent, random and interesting stores. It wasn't as busy as Harajuku - much more quieter and peaceful. Very cold too ><

So, we walked all the way to Shibuya (it wasn't a short walk) and we were hungry. I had the mood to eat Tonkatsu and it so happened that there was a Tonkatsu restaurant right before us. We went in, queued, took a sit, the food came, and it was OH SO GOOD xD
Hungry girl waiting for food.
Cheese Tonkatsu! - the best I've ever tasted! It was so juicy, tender, succulent and delicious. Such an enjoyable meal <3
Okay, I loved it so much that I took a photo of the store, Tonkatsu Wako at Shibuya. I can't remember where exactly, but I know that its nearby the train station.
It was really gloomy when we arrived at Shibuya. Thank goodness it didn't rain then! But it was really cold ><
The famous crossing - you can get lost. Really.
Tip: To catch a good view of the famous Shibuya crossing, head to Starbucks at Tsutaya.
Your's truly, Hachiko statue.
We walked around, explored Shibuya and ordered dinner through a vending machine. Its much more cheaper than your usual restaurant - and the food's not bad :D
Shibuya night time.
We came across quite a few interesting stores at Shibuya. This was at random but we found an underground Mandarake - so much anime! <3
It rained for quite a bit at night - it was getting really chilly. So, we headed home early and rested for the night.
