Tokyo 日 6: Shimokitazawa and kimono hunting in Harajuku

After nearly three weeks of sightseeing and so many impressions, I decided on a slow day. My boyfriend was off on his own discovering other parts of Tokyo, but I needed a quiet day without too much walking.

Already from before we left for Japan, I knew I wanted to explore the hipster fashionable neighbourhood Shimokitazawa.

It was a pleasant and relaxing couple of hours with no purpose but to soak up the atmosphere.

Returning to the centre I met up with my boyfriend for an intensive round of kimono shopping at Oriental Bazaar in Harajuku. We ended up loaded with cotton kimonos as well as other last minute souvenirs.

The first slow pacing day of our vacation so far.

What a treat.
