Three-T Triple Treat of Tokyo (Omotesando, Harajuku and Shinjuku) Part 1

Arriving to Narita Airport for the first time was a dream come true. Its nostalgic now to recall how cold it was on that day. It felt like there were invisible air-conditioner all over the place! These are the words coming from a girl who’ve never been to a land of ice.

Thought the people back home would be put to shame if they see these locals wearing signature clothes daily in their face! Ha! And the architectural designs of the buildings, so crazily beautiful in my eyes!

Omotesando was really an eye-opener for me when it comes to fashion. Being there made me want to see for myself other fashion cities like New York, Berlin, Italy, and even London. Hmmm…. well, with my travel buddy, we have just checked Tokyo on our list. Thank you Mama Miwako and sissy Natsuko! See you around again!
