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

So, more great tip to YOU who want to experience the London of vintage, bohemian, crazy and with a touch of Japan…. Ofcourse;)

So..
Todays No.1)
Camden street market
You go by Northern line (black) to Camden Town and pow!! There you are, in the center of a hurricane(*^_^*)

Small crazy shops everywhere with amazingly loads of… lets just say everything!
T-shirt stands, arts, vinyles (someone got thrilled), cellphone covers, bags and fooooood! Oh My God! Delish everywhere. I dont know what it is but I always get so hungry when Im abroad?
Back home I can go a whole day without eating but here! I can eat ALL THE TIME;)

2) Cyberdog
I just LOVE crazy stores and jup, in Camden I found one of the best!
Imagin you are going out on a raveparty, but its daytime and instead of a dansfloor there is glow-in-the-dark shelves with furry futuristic pieces of clothes and instead of a bar, a registre with glow-in-the-dark skulls and makeup! I bought ledbaloons♡

London baby

London ♡ oh My god!
I didnt know! So close to Sweden and with Ryan Air fairly cheap there is a city full of surprises(o^^o)

Dont get me wrong, Tokyo is My Love, but its nice to know somewhere close but yet soo nice:)

My cousine, bless him, lives at Bacon street JUST by Brick Lane!
This street is just amazing☆

Here is My travelguide for you that dont just want to see BigBen and so on:

1) Vintage Emporium
This might be the most genuine vintage café place in the world! A lovely couple owns this place which takes you back to the 20th century in old England.
The small café is crammed with furniture from amazing ages and they serve the best Yoghurt and müsli I have ever tasted as breakfast! They also have 3 dogs that comes in three sizes and blend right in♡

Donwnstaires in the basement they have a vintage shop. The most delightful place with rare items and gorgeous hats! I fell in love and bought myself a darling English vintage hat from the 40s. The owners are collectors so they have such love for each item!

2) Brick Lane
How can I have missed this street before? Here you have small vintage shops in all sizes together with foodcorners, street art everywhere and so many cool stylish people and their fashion. Upper half is all shopping and further down is lots of Indian restaurant!
On syndays this whole street becames a market!! Just lovely♡

3) Soho – Carnaby street
Well, while I have left My darling in the Vinyl district of Soho, I walk around and end up in paradise!
Carnaby street is like a shopping dream for me:) There is Make Up Store, Monki, Cheap Monday, MUJI & IRREGULARE!

These shoes My dear readers are not just shoes! They are artwork! I tried on every single pair they had (almost, poor staff) and finally I bought a pair that will match My new hat(*^_^*)
