Something that can surely cheer you up!
Let's Go!!

What comes to you mind if you hear Harajuku and Omotesando? Shopping? Kawaii? Stylish? Actually some people will say DESSERTS!! That's true! What can be better than having something sweet and yummy in a long shopping day. Today, we will take you to 3 popular spots and give you some tips about these places!!

A Kawaii Dessert

First stop, we will take you to the most famous street in Harajuku. Do you know the name of this street? Yes, you got it, it is the Takeshitadori (Takeshita Street)! If you are interested in the Japanese kawaii and youth culture, this is the best place for you!

I know that you want to do some shopping here, but let's keep going, coz I have something that is kawaii and oishii (delicious) for you ahead!









Here we are! The famous pink crepe shop, Angels Heart, in Harajuku! How about some kawaii crepe for you?












Wow, there are so many types of crepes here! Which one should we have? Since our theme today is kawaii, so how about something that can go with the pink color of Angels Heart?
















Look how kawaii the strawberry crepe is! The taste is great too! So please stop by Angels Heart and try one of the kawaii crepes next time you visit Takeshitadori!

Tips 1: Don't want to waste your time lining up? 
Actually there is another crepe shop runs by the same Cafe Crepe company, so if you could wait a bit and finish all your shopping first. You can find their sister shop "Strawberry House"near the exit of the Takeshitadori.

Traditional? Don't think so!







So you think your shopping time is finished after visiting Takeshitadori? Not so early! Omotesando is just waiting for you ahead! I bet many of you have known the big shopping centers like Laforet HARAJUKU, (Click here to see our visit), Tokyu Plaza, and the famous KIDDY LAND where you can buy some Japanese toys, character goods and stationery. 




Just right across the street, you can find the well-known stylish shopping center OMOTESANDO HILLS. (Click here to see our visit). Here, you can find your favorite brands and restaurants. Now, let us take you to one of their most popular cafe!








MAX BRENNER CHOCOLATE BAR, the New York's popular chocolate shop, is located just at the entrance of OMOTESANDO HILLS! You will not miss it! Moreover, you can see a long line in front of the shop because it is still one of the hottest spot for dessert lovers!! Okay, don't wanna waste you time, let's go!


Is that a..........pizza? Yes, the chocolate pizza topped with marshmallow is one of the most popular item on their menu! I bet you must have tried the traditional pizza, so how about something new for you this time. You will get addicted to this pizza after your first bite!


Tips 2: Don't have time to waste to line up? Don't worry, Japankuru knows the trick!!
If you see the long line outside the shop, you may just want to give up this popular chocolate shop. Please don't give up so easily! Actually if you try to go to their store after 7pm, you will be able to find a seat and enjoy chocolate desserts in a really short waiting time! Try it next time :)

Best dessert for Summer!


What can be better than having a cone of ice cream in the summer? Just around the corner, you can find BEN & JERRY'S Ice Cream Shop at the OMOTESANDO HILLS

Tips 3: Some tastes that you cannot find in other places!
Of course, you can find their popular favorites like Cheery Garcia, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cup here, but you can also get other original Japan flavors here!





Personally, I will go for this Chunky Monkey! A subtle banana flavor along with chocolate chunks and walnuts.







How about a chocolate dipped cone with your choice of ice cream?
