Travel in Tokyo: StreetGyaru style

There is all types of guides where to go when you are in Japan, but why not listen to someone that is more like you, that has lived there twice and know her way around?
Let’s travel StreetGyaru wise

First of all: Tokyo has about 130 million people so NO there is not “one” city in this over-the-top-huge city!

In Tokyo you should try and book a hotel/motel/holiday in around the
JR Yamanote Line

This line is like a cirkel that takes you to a bunch of the very best sightseeing in Tokyo!
Buy a SUICA card for a better Japanese and StreetGyaru way which means you just follow the flow with people BUT you can use different ways of keeping your card at hands. Me, I have a Penguin from 6%DOKIDOKI

On the Yamanote Line you have:
Shibuya – walk up Hachiko Exit and you will step out to the bussiest intersektion in the world, which might feel overly crowded but if you cross the intersektion (and yes, pick up your camera and film/take photo of this “real” StreetGyaru Tokyo!

For the best view, take a latte at Starbucks on the second floor of Tsutaya

おはなみ! cherryblossom ♡

I will admit, I kind of thought we would miss the cherryblossom in Tokyo this time! But we didnt!

Spring is My fav month and the place to be, for me, is Tokyo!!

Not just because the weather is nice or that I love Tokyo in general, but if you have witness sakura さくら (cherryblossom) in its full bloom you just have to come back, no matter what!

AND everyone gets so happy and all over the parks people gather under the trees having おはなみparty!! (o^^o)
That means wieving cherryblossoms while having picnic under the trees!

This is from 駒沢公園
Komazawakōen! Komazawa Daigaku is the area I lived in last year. Just a beautiful area you reach by going from Shibuya with Den-en toshi line!

Drinking, eating obentos (lunchboxes) and small snacks together is an everyday festive event with friends during a weeks period of time when the blossoms are in full bloom.

This time we went up to Nikko for a days trip.
Its just beautiful and so peaceful and you walk around in the woods, wathching the worlds heritage of shrines and temples from the Nara and Edo periode, all embedded in nature with redwood trees reaching to the sky surrounding them!

Back In Reality

Its amazing how much you can manage to do in two weeks!
But as you can see in some bars downtown in Shibuya for instance where it says that they close at
29am! (o^^o)
There you have it, they have more hours in a day in the land of the rising sun!

I will give you some treats for now about what we did this very exciting trip! I really ♡ to meet My friends from all over the world again that lives there.

Then ofcourse clubbing!!
Johan got 2 gigs in Tokyo this time (Yutaka-san と Aya-san ありがとうございます!)
At Bar Jam and Ensof Tokyo

Both great places, really!

Then ofcourse, a visit to We Language School and seeing My dear teachers!

Then My dear followers, shopping!
109 Shibuya

Last weekend in Tokyo.. for this time

Pre-Halloween in Tokyo

Tokyo Halloween

Im sorry Im writing this so late, but I need to tell you about my last weekend in Tokyo before reality and my trip back to Sweden takes ahold of me. The picture above is from my Sayonara party! I had it together with my darling friend Bameis birthday party.
A funny note; tanyoubi, which means birthday in japanse has a funny meaning, which ofcourse is congratulations for being born BUT also sayonara because you get departured from your mother. SO, this collaboration of Birthday party and Sayonara party went under the name TANYOUBI PARTY! ❤

This was the weekend before Halloween but I really love dress out/up so we had a pre-halloween theme and I was one from the Night of the living dolls.

The evening started 7pm in Roppongi at OZ CAFE
