Hello and Harajuku

Hello, this is Amelia and welcome to my personal photo blog.

This blog is mostly going to be about my life in Tokyo, food review, travel, arts, random photos and fashion. All photos on these blogs are taken by me unless credited :)

It was on a sunny mid January, few days after a hard unusual snowfall in Tokyo when my mom and I went to Harajuku.

Harajuku is probably one of the most well known place in Japan. But it is not as extreme what it is portrayed in media abroad. I hardly can spot people wearing lolita or gothic fashion these days, yet gotta agree that this is one of the most creative place in the world.

We decided to have gyoza for dinner at this place called Harajuku Gyoza Lou. Located at the backstreet of Harajuku/Omotesando.

What's good about this place is that it is really good yet affordable. It can get very busy at night and people are willing to line up to eat here but the line moves rather quickly. I probably only had to wait for around 5 minutes before getting to be seated that night. Plus, they have English menu!

Address : 6-2-4 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo


Bean sprouts with minced meat. Loved it!

We can watch the workers boiling or frying the gyoza from the counter seat


The Yaki Gyoza, this one is better than the boiled one and only for 290 yen!

The rice comes together with a bowl of soup

we walked around just for a while after dinner since all stores are closing pretty early.
