Japan Trip 2015: Day 1 Part 2 Harajuku & Liz Lisa

So in the previous post: Day 1 Part 1: Akihabara, I said I would talk about my Liz Lisa buys so here we go.

After Akihabara, we headed to Harajuku. I wanted to shop at Liz Lisa and Sho wanted to check out Evangelion store, Stay Real, and Hot Toys. I thought we were going to stay near Takeshita street for a while so I could take more pictures of the area but err plans changed.

There was two cafes I wanted to eat/rest at Noa Cafe and Q-Pot cafe but Sho said we'll come back later. After shopping at the Liz Lisa store, we headed to Evangelion store which was around the corner. Turns out it moved to Ikebukuro, Sho was pretty disappointed cause he planned on spending most of his money there lol. Then we headed to Hot Toys & Stay Real store which was FAR away from Takeshita street. Stay Real didn't have any cool clothing collabs for Sho and the Hot Toys store didn't have anything new because he either bought or pre-ordered the items. Basically this was a really depressing day for Sho. He seemed pretty pissed off. I didn't want to bring up going back to Takeshita street to take photos so we walked around aimlessly. After the Hot Toys store, we walked over to Kiddyland. I bought lots of Sailor Moon makeup which I will make a post about later. Didn't have enough time or bad lighting to add photos.

Spend 15000yen to get this novelty selfie stick.

Spend 20000yen to get this novelty summer tote.

Sleeping kitties in Omotesando.

Sho wasn't feeling the cafes I mention so we decided to go to Maisen. We always go here every year. The katsu is fantastic everytime but in my mind I still wanted to check out Q-Pot & NOA cafe. Oh well.

Took these photos, once we arrived back home in Abiko. Spent almost 50000yen Day 1 HAHA.

Took these photos 1am in the morning not the best lighting in my room >_<


Day 1 Haul

Next trip, I DEFINITELY want to eat at Noa Cafe link and Q-pot link. If Sho doesn't want to go again, then I'll just go by myself haha.

Japan Trip 2015: Day 1 Part 1 Family Mart Konbini & Akihabara

I was gonna make this one big post but pics from Akihabara alone is 20+ pics. I didn't want this too pic heavy than it already is so I'm splitting this into part 1 Akihabara. Part 2 will follow with Liz Lisa Harajuku buys.

The next day, woke up still feeling like crap. This is probably the only decent photo of me. I didn't want to take photos of myself the rest of the week. Just feeling dead.

Sho's grandparents house has a nice garden and these flowers will produce tangerines.

Walked over to Family Mart in Abiko to check out cool stuff. I love konbini's! Everyday we went to different convenient stores causes they offered various items. I think the one in Abiko had the best stuff.

Yokai Watch donuts *_*

Gudetama was everywhere super popular.

I was too afraid to try this lol

2D heaven *nosebleed*

Andy Warhol ice cream? Interesting.

Sho bought this item. It's a Hatsune Miku yogurt and it came with a glass cup.

Bought this Coca Cola Life bottle, Puccho x Disney collab, and masks.

Took the subway to Akihabara to pick up our pocket wifi. It was a 5-7min walk from the train station.
Japan WiFi Rental Service. They said battery life would be 3-4 hrs. For me and Sho, it lasted 7hrs. More info:

We had the no.1 popular one GL06P

People selling their anime toys in the cubes.

K-On super cute!

Didn't know Adventure Time was popular in Japan.

Sho won me Hello Kitty plushie!

Now thats my kind of Gundam. Kira kira *__*

The best gashapon store in Akihabara. It has weird and quirky stuff. I should got cat ones but my focus was Sailor Moon ones.

I spent 5000yen on Sailor Moon capsules. OMG X__X
This one right here was 500 each! I kept on getting dups >_<

Also spent money on Sailor Moon clear files for 200yen.
(Using the same image from yesterday)

Checked out Big Camera
I bought the Cardcaptor Sakura S.H. figuarts and Sailor Moon Rod Proplica.

More Sailor Moon goods to temp me but I already spent a lot on stupid dups haha X_X

Checked out the Akihabara station department store. Had wonderful goodies and sweets.


Relaxed at Mister Donut. Sho and I wanted to chill at the Good Smile Cafe like we did back in 2012 but apparently it moved to Ikebukuro ;_:

Part 2 is Harajuku Liz Lisa. Please stay tuned
