I'm going to Tokyo and I want to be a Mori Girl

Those who follow me on twitter are probably sick of me talking about Tokyo and how excited I am to be going. So sorry for all the tweets about it but seriously I have been drooling over all the cute shops and clothes for years now! Every time I see pictures of Tokyo and Japanese style such as on Hello Sandwich and Mori Girl my heart skips. Such loveliness.

So if you've been I'd love to know what was your favourite thing/place to see/do/stay in Tokyo.

  1. So jealous!! And I'm not at all annoyed by your many Tokyo-tweets, I'm living vicariously through you :))

  2. ahhh, space mountain wa totemo tanoshi desu!
    you'll have so much fun, everything in japan is so much cuter than here!

  3. I'm jealous, hopefully i'll be able to go for my birthday next year

  4. go to LAFORET in Harajuku!! You'll love it!!

    also.. check out inokashira/kichijoji area.. it's hip, the park is nice.

    If you're into studio ghibli animation (I looove tottoro myself), the mitaka no mori ghibli museum is also amazing!!

  5. OMG this bear!!
    oh tokyo is great! say hi from me when you're there :)

    geee i WANT this little bear, it's too cute! :)

  6. Hey! I have been reading your blog for a while and I really love your selection of photos! So I am happy to be able to help you now! I went to Japan a few years ago and have some posts about it on my travel blog. Please use the Google translating tool on the left column (since it's mainly written in Spanish) and enjoy! Of course I would be glad if you also went through the rest of it. This is the link to the Japan posts...


    Big hugs from Spain!

  7. if you like "mori girl" vibes then definitely stop by the "calk walk" area close to harajuku and omotesando, and "daikanyama". theres a lot of interesting thrift stores in those areas and its fun to look at all the people walking around wearing cool clothes.

    be sure to go to asakusa to experience the "old" japan. youll love it here in tokyo :))

  8. It'd be good for you to learn Japanese before come to Tokyo. We Japanese really want to help someone like you but cannot speak English well!

    Bon Voyage! from Tokyo.

  9. I loved tokyo, especially wandering around the little streets and finding small ramen eateries tucked away somewhere.

  10. i am in tokyo visting at the moment -- my favourite place is kamakura (perfect for a day trip from the city)…it is a beautiful little seaside town filled with temples and shrines --and a 'bills' restaurant too. there is also a little babushka and kokeshi shop in the backstreets which i found almost impossible to find.

    but if you are actually in tokyo -- then omotesando is my favourite…little streets with boutiques…high end shop on the main tree lined street and right next to harajuku and meiji jingu shrine.

    have a fabulous time!!!
    tokyo is one of my favourite places to be :)

  11. aw, i'm going to visit tokyo too this april. when will you go there?

  12. Very very cute... oh so exciting going to Tokyo. I've already have had holiday book to Tokyo for September (I know, it's still February..), but I can hardly wait..

    Hope you enjoy it there!



  13. so so excited for you. i wish one day to go to japan as well!

  14. Ooh, I'd be plenty excited, too! Traveling is such fun. I love these photos. :)


  15. Tokyo! Such a feast for the eyes! For the soul! And most importantly, for FASHION! You must do Cat Street! {crosses Takeshita Dori and Omotesando Dori in the Harajuku area} Great shops + Perfect people watching. One more thing, make sure to enjoy some beyond-delicious yakiniku and matcha ice cream!

    Enjoy your trip!
