We didn’t just stuff our faces with food during our summer holiday (though, from my past few posts, it probably seems that way!) We also did a whole lotta shopping in the cutest and kookiest places we could find, from Tokyo Station to Nakano Broadway and, of course, Harajuku, here are some of my favorite kawaii finds! 💖
Y’know when you’re having one of those days when you just need to be completely smothered by wall-to-wall cute stuff? No? Well, I get that kinda sensation all the time (hence why my apartment is a bubblegum pink Hello Kitty explosion…) When I get that sorta feeling, and a holiday to Tokyo is nowhere to be seen, I like to skip on over to Hongdae for the next best thing…
UPDATED: November 2014. I updated the directions, since TGIFriday’s is gone and Forever 21 has opened! Also, 1300k seems to have stopped carrying Hello Kitty merchandise, so check out the Sanrio Gift Gate instead! ♥
This post is dedicated to my all-time fave shop in Hongdae for everything cute and quirky: 1300k! (Just don’t ask me how to pronounce it! ‘Book’, ’13-ook’? Your guess is as good as mine!)
Okay, so I was super excited about going to Osaka for a number of reasons, mainly because I’d heard it was awesome for shopping.
WHEW! I’m dedicating this FINAL update on Seoul to our fave neighborhood, Hongdae, a.k.a. the youthful artsy fartsy area.
