Yes, I tried Kinoko no Yama Strawberry Condensed Milk flavor before, but the last time it was bigger sized and the stem was made of simple cracker.

This time, it is ordinary sized and the stem is cocoa flavor.

Kitaro Chaya

Kitaro is a popular and unique manga/anime “yokai” boy character. We found him and his friends cafe when we went to Jindaiji.

Horrible, but charming yokai (means like “spirits”, “demons” or “fairy”, they’re originally from Japanese folklore) guys were welcoming us from all around the cafe (= chaya).
It was very crowded, so we could not try their special sweets, but it was so much fun we could meet many characters came from “Gegege no Kitaro”.

I got a trio of Marc by Marc Jacobs hair ties. I love these contrasting colours.
The embossed charms adds a polished look to a ponytail.

I like this good tea scent, sweet and bitter taste. I finished the pack in an instant.

Koomori-chan

I got a spooky-cute koomori-chan (tiny batty) plushie created by Keiko Miyata.
I’m totally in love with its red and orange odd eyes, stripy tail, and holey wings.

Not just only a plushie, but it has brooch pin on the back. Tiny bell tinkles when we walk, so much fun to go out with it!

You can see Miyata-san’s creation on her website. Also she created a part of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s dress for her world tour. :)

CHILES Mexican Grill

Burritos are getting popular nowadays in Tokyo, but almost Japanese is more familiar with Tacos, and there’s not so many Mexican restaurants here. Mexican Grill CHILES is on a narrow byway from the crowded Harajuku Takeshita street.

It’s like a small hiding place, and the burritos are tasty. (I chose chicken, I’m sorry my “bite” photo was too messy to show you!)
