Tokyo Travel with a child Part 3!


Our second full day in Tokyo, we decided to take it easy. The last time we took the little guy on a trip to Kyoto and Osaka, I tried to fit too much into a day, which ended up more exhausting and stressful than it needed to be. This time was much better. Since we were staying in Harajuku, after our Dominique Ansel breakfast we walked up to the Meiji Jingu Shrine, which is right next to JR Harajuku station. There were a heap of weddings happening there, which was great, because I love looking at the brides in their beautiful traditional wedding outfits. We bought a wood block and wrote a family wish and hung it up. It was a lovely time.

After a rest back at the apartment, we decided to head out in search of some mexican food (mostly some frozen margheritas). We found this awesome little place in the back streets of Harajuku called Chiles, and settled in. The frozen strawberry margheritas were exactly the kind of holiday drink we were after, and the food was delish too! Griff loved their kids plate, which had a ham and cheese quesadilla, beans, rice and condiments. It had a great selection of vegetarian options as well!

We ended the day with a lovely dinner with my friend Yuko, who I haven't seen in over a year. All in all, it was such a great trip. And the thing that I love about Tokyo, is no matter how many times I visit, I never ever get bored of it.

There were many weddings going on this day. This was just one!

We made a family wish and hung it.

I love the old school tools they use to keep the grounds clean.
