Lolita Blog Carnival: Plan Your Ideal Holiday Trip to Tokyo for Frills

In this post, I will describe my ideal Lolita holiday to Tokyo. I would like to go to Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Disney Sea. As with the hotel, it would need to have a wardrobe that will store two Lolita outfits because I would like to go to a brand event. Also, there would be a travel companion for peace of mind when out in Harajuku wearing Lolita and also to take photos. Below is a list of things I would like to do in Tokyo.

Ideal spending money: at least enough for 1-2 Lolita pieces (skirt, JSK, OP) and other things

- Eat at Mister Donut and Mosburger (Mister Donut has unique donuts and the rice burger at Mosburger is delicious)


Above: What I ate at Mister Donut Ikebukuro. I wish Pon de Ring donuts were available in Australia.

- Get breakfast at Krispy Kreme, ideally get a Japan only and/or a seasonal donut.
- Go to 109 and browse the shops (especially the sock/stocking stores, KOKOkim, Ruby Rose and Club KT (Hello Kitty store)

-Walk around Shibuya and play at random game centres

- Go to the Disney store

- Take a photo with Hachiko

-Wear Lolita
- Go to Takeshita street, shop at Bodyline (caution: can't try anything on and no refunds. In other words, do not buy anything there if you are unsure if it will fit), go to Daiso (huge one on Takeshita street) and shop at Closet child (hard to find unless you look up)
Above: Takeshita street sign. It's amazing that it can combine a TV like screen with balloons.
-Take Purikura
- Eat at Santa Monica crepe on Takeshita street (as long as it's stuffed, any crepe may be good)
- Walk around the backstreets of Harajuku
- Go to 6% DokiDoki (seems to like foriegners)
- Go to Laforet and browse all floors
- Visit Meiji shrine and Yoyogi park (I have been to Meiji shrine but not Yoyogi park)
- Go to Sunshine City alpha and look around
- Eat at the Sunshine City "restaurant floor" and choose a restaurant based on what I feel like on the day
- Eat at the Milky Way café
- Go to Closet child
- Walk around Ikebukuro and play at random game centers
- Go to closet child (would go to all three shops as they won't have the same stock)

- Shop at Marui Annex and maybe Marui One
- As long as I have a map/ smartphone with one or two map apps, get out of Shinjuku station at a random exit and walk around
- Take advantage of the free observation desks at the Tokyo Government Metropolitan building

Disney Sea

- Spend 1 or 2 days there
- Buy Duffy and/or Shelley Mae on the first day
Brand event
- Ideally plan a coord before Tokyo and adding on in Tokyo in order to reduce stress
