Things I miss in Tokyo

I love Tokyo!  At least once a day, I think about Tokyo (or something about Tokyo).  I have been to Tokyo about four times, and whenever I visit it never fails to amaze me with cool things.  I’m not sure yet when my next visit is going to be, but hopefully it will be sooner.

Here are some of the things I miss about Tokyo.

The 10 Things I miss in Tokyo:

1.  Harajuku Takeshita Street

Whenever I visit Tokyo, this place is my first destination.  I love this narrow fashion street.  The stores are unique and affordable too.  Latest street fashion trends can also be found on this street.

2.  Taito Station

I enjoy playing different video games and playing the UFO catchers (claw machines).  Taito Station is a place for gaming/entertainment – arcades, claw machines, etc.    This place especially the one in Akihabara has floors of arcades and games.

3.  Studio Ghibli Museum

The Studio Ghibli Museum is one of my favorite museums to visit in Tokyo.  It’s not too big, but the theme of the museum revolves around the different Studio Ghibli animations.  And it is also very cute.

4.  Themed Foods

My favorite places to visit in Tokyo are the cute themed cafes.  Most of the time the food are also in-themed too, like shaped/designed similar to the theme of the cafe.  One of my favorite food was the Moomin shaped pancake from the Moomin House Cafe, it was so cute and yummy too.

5.    Gachapon

Gachapon is a capsule toy vending machine.  I miss getting random cute charms or figurines from these vending machines.

6.  Donki

Donki is a kind of like a department store that sells unique and random things.  They have cosplays, beauty products, food, etc.  I miss going here since I find really cool stuff like cute pens, socks, and other things.  And they’re usually open until late at night.

I miss getting onigiri from the convenient stores.  They’re cheap, delicious and very filling.

8.  Hello Kitty Japan

Hello Kitty is pretty much everywhere, there’s the Sanrio Store, Hello Kitty Japan, etc.  I miss buying Hello Kitty items and seeing the different Hello Kitty Japan exclusive things.

9.  Ichiran Ramen

Ichiran Ramen is the best ramen I’ve ever had.  Ichiran is a ramen restaurant (they’re all over Tokyo), where you can customize your ramen too.  I don’t think I will ever get tired of eating this ramen.

10.  Shibuya109

I miss going to Shibuya109 especially at night.  The shopping is just so much more fun during at night especially with friends.
