    Yay!! So awesome that you get to accomplish your dream of going to Japan! You’re gonna absolutely love it!
    My husband and I went for our honeymoon a few years ago, here are some things you might wanna check out:
    -Studio Ghibli Museum in Mitaka. I’m assuming this is already on your list, but just in case πŸ™‚ My favorite part was watching the short film in the tiny movie theater.
    -The Great Buddha in Kamakura. Just breathtaking.
    -The restaurant Mist has amazing ramen. We went for lunch, it was cheaper, and we were not disappointed!

    -Kiddyland in Harajuku.
    -Since you’re going to be there for 2 weeks, which is the same amount we were, you might want to look into getting the Japanese Rail Pass. We used it A LOT, I think it ended up being a good investment.

    There’s ton of other stuff I could suggest, but I don’t want to take up all your time. Have an awesome time, take lots of pictures, eat lots of delicious food!

    You’re so welcome! Oh and I forgot a few things…
    -The Osaka Aquarium! If you get a chance to visit, this is an amazing aquarium! I love the whale sharks. Afterwards we went on the giant ferris wheel in Osaka which had an amazing view at night. http://www.kaiyukan.com/language/eng/index.htm
    -The Kyoto International Manga Museum! This was one of my favorite parts of our trip. They have cool exhibits on how manga was created, and they have rotating exhibitions by famous manga artists. Also they have a cute cafe and a nice grassy area outside where you can have a picnic!

    What amazing news!! I’m not a Pinterest member, but I live in Tokyo currently and I’m happy to answer any questions you might have about Tokyo/Japan! Are you spending a week in each place? There’s so much to see and do, I don’t know how you’ll fit it all in! If you have the time/money, I highly recommend Tokyo Disney Sea, which is a lovely Japanese take on the Disney theme park experience, and the Little Mermaid show is especially fantastic.

    Hey San :3
    Katie told me to pop over and recommend a few places I like going when I find myself in Tokyo!
    Ikebukuro- Milky Way: An AWESOME horoscope themed parfait restaurant. It’s adorable and their parfaits are equally delicious. It has a great overview of the entrance of the shopping arcade. http://www.sunnypages.jp/travel_guide/tokyo_restaurants/cafes/Milkyway+Cafe/4512
    I know you’re into fashion- so definitely check out Laforet in Harajuku- and don’t be afraid to wander the back streets on Takeshita and Harajuku Doori. You’ll find amazing stuff in those back streets.
    Evidently they’re closing Marui One in Shinjuku and replacing it with Marui Annex- not sure if it will be reopened by the time you go though~ 😦
    If you’re free on Sunday go take a walk in Yoyogi Park and see the rockabillies dancing around and a lot of artistic/musician people just doing their thing πŸ™‚ It’s a lot of fun. There tends to be small food stands around too.
    I’ve never been, but have always wanted to go to Q-Pot Cafe, so if you can go, I’m sure it’s pretty awesome: http://www.q-potcafe.jp/ and http://www.q-pot.jp/eng/shops/tokyo/index.html
    Also haven’t been to this one yet- it’s in Ginza, the Alice in Wonderland themed restaurant: http://curious-places.blogspot.com/2011/10/alice-in-wonderland-restaurant-tokyo.html
    I hope you enjoy your trip! I’m sure you have a ton planned already, but hopefully you can make it to a few things on here :3

    One more thing- I’d recommend doing Harajuku on a weekday if you want to do serious shopping πŸ™‚ it’s a lot less frustrating. But if you’re going to look at people, sunday tends to be the best day.
