Tokyo photo diary

7:00 pm

Last week I was lucky enough to travel to a place I've wanted to go to for years. 12 years, to be precise, when Gwen Stefani released the iconic Love Angel Music Baby and like Gwen, I became obsessed with Harajuku and it's unique style. I headed to Tokyo with my mum and dad as a late 21st present, and I'm already planning on returning. I could camp out in Harajuku and take street style pictures all day long, I swear. Harajuku girls' style is to die for. If you're interested in fashion, technology, or want a good culture shock, head to Tokyo. You won't regret it.

During my week in Tokyo I visited the Meiji-Jingu temple, Senso-ji temple, Akihabara 'geek' district, Harajuku, Ginza shopping district, Tokyo tower, Shinjuku garden and the Shinagawa district, but being such a huge city (as you can tell from that skyline picture taken from Tokyo tower!) there's so much more to see. What would be on your list if you went to Tokyo?
