Tokyo, Mt Fuji Travel Day 2 Harajuku, Yoyogi Park

From Tsukiji Fish Market (read our Food Map here), we took subway to Meiji Jingu Mae 'Harajuku' 明治神宮前〈原宿〉station, as I promised the children to get them the giant cotton candy floss. But before that, we went to Yoyogi Park 代々木公園 to see the autumn foliage. However it was turning dark at 4+ p.m. during winter, and the view was not as spectacular as I thought.

The oldest wooden JR Harajuku station was closed in March 2020 and is replaced by a new building adjacent to it. So this was the last time I saw the old wooden station!

Takeshita Street 竹下通り at Harajuku 原宿 is super crowded! The street is lined with many eateries and shops that sell fashionable and cute items. 

This is our Harajuku food map:

Totti Candy Factory 
The children thought they found the heaven when they entered Totti Candy Factory. There are many different types of candy. 

As promised, we bought one giant cotton candy floss from Totti Candy Factory for the children. I think it would be once in a lifetime that I would spend 950 yen (~S$12) on candy floss! It was bigger than my head!

Kebab Box J
Other than the biggest cotton candy floss, we also had the longest fries from Kebab Box J. 

Luke's Lobster
We ordered Lobster Roll (regular). It is an interesting combination of warm bun with cold lobster meat. It is satisfying to have a big chunk of lobster meat. However the seasoning is rather strong for me, the garlic butter taste lingered in my mouth for quite some time.

We walked past Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku, the design of the entrance is interesting! Many people were taking photo there. I think it would look nicer during the day time.

We had window-shopping at the big toy shop Kiddy Land. DaDi and Hao Hao went to see the toy cars, while Pei Pei and I had a great time looking at the merchandises of Sanrio characters and Totoro!

The winter illumination along Omotesando presented by Google Pixel gave the area a magical feel.

Finally, we had tsukemen dinner at LaQua Tokyo Dome City and did some shopping for fruits at the supermarket. All of us were very tired after the long day!
