Hey you guys Phoebe here from Little Grey Box now Matt and I are so so
excited and so happy because we are in our favorite country of all time
Japan and today is our first full day right here in Tokyo and we thought we
would start things off in Harajuku now Harajuku is world-famous it is the heart
of Japan's awesome teen culture where fashion trends are set there are all
things bright colorful Hello Kitty vibrant it is just an incredible place
and I am so excited to get in there and check it out
starting with Takeshita Dori now this is the famous walking street and a really
good place to start your adventure in Harajuku let's go check it out
Daiso is a great place to start along Takashita Dori it is a really cheap shop
full of the stuff you didn't know you desperately needed they have everything
and anything in here and it's usually only a couple hundred Yen I love this
place my sister buys all of her eyelashes from here the false ones
not her real ones
now if you're so inclined you might want to check out one of the precursors
behind me I'm definitely saying that wrong and what that is is those photo
booths that you see where the girls go in and then you take photos and then you
can do things like change the shape of your eyes or you know make your skin
really glowy I think it's like the sticker kind of real life for most
versions and facetune pretty interesting when I'm gonna do it but you might want
to and of course you cannot come to Japan without eating ramen they're
finding vegetarian friendly or vegan friendly or any kind of ramen that
doesn't contain pork can be a little bit tricky but lucky the guys at a furry
ramen have you covered so I know for a fact they do an amazing
vegan seasonal ramen in there and it is going to be delicious laughs over here
didn't get to try it this time I'm all-in ordering in Tokyo
is a a bit different so here were the furry
for example you have a vending machine so you guys sit down and be presented
with a menu and have it you know a server come over and take your order
you get to decide what you want please come over here and you are going to need
cash your cash into the machine and then you make your selection you and your
ticket to the server and they might ask you a question about what kind of broth
you want for example or what kind of noodles you want and then they will get
your order over to you and don't worry I order um all the times you have anybody
to stop it usually able to help this full of being in ramen looks sorry
beautiful it is famous we're looking for the ramen
I even had you man not only that it smells incredible
they roasted these little cauliflower florets the noodles look absolutely
amazing look at all these fresh greens it looks insane I am so excited let's
dig in and try this I would say this wasn't exactly the cheapest bowl of
ramen it was about fourteen hundred and eighty yen but I have a feeling it's
gonna be worth it
is incredible this is cat Street and no not the kind of cat meow meow it's just
: chemistry so don't come here this week to see a whole of cats do you be
disappointed that guy was maybe so CAD Street is all
about drew takes a really cool trendy shopping areas now trendy is the word
here this is what you're gonna find some really cute boutiques lots of stores to
pick up stuff you just can't find anywhere else but I have to say I don't
think you're gonna find anything too budget-friendly this is more your
high-end experience there are also some really good eateries around here too but
it's well worth coming down a cart Street having a stroll because the
streets here are just beautiful I like it a lot more than takeshiba Dori so I
see the Dori is very touristy and in my opinion it's a little overdone but cat
Street and all the alleyways around here they're so peaceful and beautiful the
boutiques are so interesting there's just so much to see and do you know
there are plenty of great places to eat around Turkey and some of them are
bakeries there's just so much good pastry around Tokyo right now in
harajuku hypervisor going places that maybe are a little away from the major
touristy spots with the Dominique and sell bakery behind me the cakes are
really really beautiful and I think they're really well priced for what they
are and how much work it goes into it Matt and I are basic so we've gone with
a pen through chocolate so a chocolate croissant I just live for a good
croissant filled with chocolate they warmed this up it was 380 m2 mouth
ordering and how to eat this now
I checked out this place online and really want to come and check it out
it's I'm gonna send it's like a máquina I think that's how they say it
and just the coffee was really nice it was like a really cool place it's away
from the main road and they do soy milk so I thought it would be a really good
option the coffee isn't exactly cheap this soy latte was around five hundred
yen which is pretty steep but treat yourself
so we are at the meiji jingu shrine here in harajuku and it is absolutely
beautiful it is of course a tribute to the emperor meiji and the Empress and
it's just a really beautiful place to come to escape the madness of the
harajuku streets one thing you can't really sit around in here so it's more
of a walk around kind of experience I would recommend coming in the afternoon
when the light is all beautiful like it is now it's a totally free thing to do
and you just have to be prepared to walk in a little bit and walk out a little
bit because it's not just like a dip into that kind of situation it will take
you a minute to get in here but once you're in it's incredible
we are in your yoga park now I have to be honest and say today is Monday and it
is not as good on a Monday the day you really want to come here is on the
Sunday that's a we visited last time we were here that was incredible the park
fills up with people and they're all doing whatever the heck they want you've
got breezes out front dancing you've got groups of wrens practicing their
monologue people rehearsing dances if I were here I would be getting myself a
picnic and I would be coming here to enjoy the sunshine and just soak it all
in it was one of my favorite Tokyo experiences last time we visited like I
said today's Monday so it's just us and personally five million crows but we are
gonna go and do something that I really love which is to check out the dog paw
cuz dogs in Japan a searcher
now you guys know by now pretty much the only reason I travel is to make cute
dogs I'm seriously reconsidering my job title to name it travel dog
there is one thing I love it is gyoza I live the dumplings and one of the best
places get them in her sugar is here at her as you're good go salud so we're
gonna go inside now and get some tea cuz I am starving
okay that was a massive fail we went in there the food all looked like it was
going to be great but everything was pork which is fine I know
cherries are traditionally pork so that's my era
I should have researched that better instead now we're going for veggie
burgers and fries so we are at the great oh my gosh you guys have no idea how
much I want this burger so we just found this place we're walking along and
stumping a nibble to go this is going to go everywhere
if you had never the innocent Harajuku is pretty much a destination for food we
have just been eating all day and what better way to finish things off that
without credit now there are lots of crap places along the streets yeah yes
I'm saying CREP no crepe you know the people in London say crap but I just
think it's encircled to it so I'm saying it plenty of places to choose from if
Marian crepes is like the number one that's the famous one right in the
middle of Turkey sheet of Dori but there is always a bit of a lineup which kind
of puts me up and I like to try something different now I cannot eat
what matters or did there is a piece of cake in there that you cannot see he's
going charlet cake with chocolate ice cream chocolate sauce and cream I'm just
gonna move another inch my quick so let's give it a go
that's really good not too intense
really in Japan if you've been before you'll know that the rooms here are
typically pretty small and a lot of the places we looked at were too expensive
for us too small for us and they just looked a bit rundown and then we found
this place which is called the Domo hotel and it is in Shinjuku it's right
next to a train station so it's really really convenient there's lots of food
nearby I'm gonna show you around quickly because we really love this place and I
say me to show you around quickly because this is gonna take two seconds
it's tiny it's like 16 meters squared so let's stop behind you here we've got a
nice clothes hanging space that's really good because you can get your clothes up
and hung we've got a little fridge down here we've got two places to put our
luggage over here we've got this little hidey-hole here we've got a big mirror
which is a really nice addition a lot of these small rooms don't have a mirror
and we need to be able to make sure we look okay and also I need someone to sit
and do my makeup now through the whole way we've got a window and let me tell
you don't take Windows for granted in these small hotel hotel rooms because we
know makes all the difference down here we've got our bathroom sorry this is a
bit messy because we stayed in here one night so that is really tiny but this
made really good use of the space and everything in there is modern and works
very very well that's all you need honestly through here is the bedroom and
this is it this is the main space area so as you can see is very small twin
beds are just the thing in Japan so if you are travelling as a couple I would
recommend you go with twin beds we've had to stay in a room with a double bed
before and it was so small that we had to take turns sleeping on our back like
one was on the back one was on the side and then we have to rotate like that
throughout the night it was hell overall I think Domo is really good for the
price I think it's a decent size given we're in Japan I think it's a great
location and it's really modern so if you are looking for somewhere
budget-friendly ish I think it's been about 600 Australian dollars ish for
five nights here can't complain
so we are starting up a second day with a guy the two of the Tsukiji and poyo
soup fish markets with the guys at ninja food to us now what's really cool about
this is that things have changed a lot you guys when we were here last it was
just this a good to eat fish market you could wander in you can do you stop now
it's a little more confusing so having the guys from ninja show us around it's
just really make it a world of difference we're getting a whole lot of
context and it's more like we know risco and what to see so the Tsukiji fish
market as we know it if you've ever been here before if you've seen photos of
what it used to be is no more you're gonna find all of those kind of fish
dealers who deal to restaurants and places like that over to your suit here
we're at the Alta market and this is where you know people like us can come
and take more photos and have more of that interactive experience that you
really want as a tourist that is the biggest waster I have a machine in my
life I don't have dainty little hands either
if you've ever eaten wasabi did you know where that looks like before it becomes
that ground-up green paste like this 300 yen for one individually wrapped white
strawberry dividers they spend to be delicious I'm so
nervous I mean a girl oh it's almost not real it's our sweet
if you ever eat something like takoyaki and you see those two the octopus pose
and you see like the flakes over your top those actually flakes from dried
fish we actually get to touch the fish early up that was dried and it was
rock-hard so in order to get those flakes off they
kind of shave it here you can dry it
very very distinct machine and really nice this is televi Aki Japanese egg
delicious they recommend eating a little busted oh my god mustard was hot that is
good keeper those set me up Oh the egg is good it's lovely and sweet
really really nice and it was a hundred yen
you cannot come to the fish market and not have a tuna rice ball if you haven't
guessed already I have anything strip vegetarian quite some time now guys I'm
back on the pescetarian wagon this looks like heaven to me now I am gonna put a
little bit of the top I mean this is my first time experiencing matches subserve
I've never tried it I don't know why I mean it looks amazing I love the color
don't we go well together and this is a japanesse it's a combination of coffee
and matcha just two of the best things in the world that's surprisingly good
yeah really good that was fantastic they took us to all the best food spots
we got to try amazing food you know they do all the ordering for you so you don't
mess it up and I mean most importantly we got to try things we would never try
otherwise so really push this outside our comfort zone and we've done some new
foods we absolutely love now that we're done we're about to head over to Shibuya
and get out Shibuya aw yeah
we're the ship crossing the finish area scrambled and it is the hot of the air
you can see everybody is where the ground behind me we're actually stopped
at Angelo the road this area is famous for shopping bird and all things I don't
know where both came for some fears and some karaoke that's been dying to sing
original sinful ways karaoke in Japan is so much fun in a little room like this
I'm an hour with 720 yen per person oh you can drink that hot dog you would be
amazed how much you could drink in an hour and a half and all you can drink
karaoke joint that was fantastic oh my gosh I don't care if you're an
introvert if you're embarrassed to sing in front of people whatever that carrier
of experience is amazing I mean oh it's just you if you wanted to apply yourself
we saw some people in this solar friends if you wanna do it for any friends
either way it is so much fun we could have easily stayed in there all night
you guys didn't know this value but I lose my voice really really easily sir
it is gonna be gone by the end of tonight
time to eat let's go eat looks great Bob okay sir we are going to
one of my favorite sushi places you are they it's not my favorite because it's
the best sushi because it's not the best sushi but it's like a hundred the end of
plate it shoots sushi sushi just kind of comes out in this cool convey about okay
go do this it was amazing oh you guys something smells like garlic out here
we're gonna keep walking you i bay is cheap it's fast it's delicious sorry my
voice it's just great stupid time for everyone and best of all is the ultimate
introvert dining experience so let's idiot here to use grandpa
all right yes the way this works you come in you sit down you're facing this
conveyor belt there are three levels and here's where your food is going to come
out it is incredible and why are you better than sushi train because it just
feels in the futuristic and fresh so I've added like you just use navigate
around it's a journey of a price the prices
seem to be up here it's about hundred yen yeah hundred yen something like that
I'm really really cheap all this latest dominance you add stuff and then you
just yeah boom you're over and it just shows that
there is so many things I love about Tokyo just feels like it's okay to be
you and it's okay to express yourself whether that's through the way you dress
whether it's how the way you act whether it's how you spend your evenings it's
whatever you wanted to whatever you want to be it will just start seem too
mundane I've seen people wearing all kinds of weird and beautiful and bright
and colorful things and honestly that's the way it should be you know at first
sometimes I feel like there's a Murphy dress differently or you
a little bits of bread you were going to look at you sideways if you like to
funny by here that that's not a thing people barely look at you you know you
can wear what you want you can be yourself and that's totally fine you
know you can go and eat by yourself you can go to karaoke by yourself you can do
whatever you want you can just up is like a manga character you can be
anything anybody just express yourself and that is not only accepted it's a
welcomed here in Tokyo and that's just one of the reasons I love this city so
very much now look if you'd aren't already
