i found the lace center!

after walking round and round in circles,
i finally managed to find
the lace center
in
harajuku....

i almost thought i wouldn't be able to find it....
you know how difficult it is to figure out the exact location of shops on small streets in tokyo...
even if you ask the local people, most probably they won't know either...

right when i was about to quit (i was really exhausted and my legs were broken from too much walking),
there it was right in front of me!!!!

and of course,
i went crazy....
more about this shop when i am back home...

so on my third day here in tokyo,
i went to
shimo-kitazawa,
kichijoji
and
harajuku.

it was my first time to kichijoji
and surely i will go back next time,
i like the little shops on the little streets behind those big department stores alot!

ah i almost forgot
about this shop called yuzawaya in kichijoji.
it is a mega store with lots of sewing supplies.....
more about this when i am back...

WOW, the lace center in harajuku has your name written all over :)

Every time i go to japan, i always walk myself to death... so much to see, can't waste a single minute!

have you been to the store Liberty in London? i think you would really enjoy it if you have not been there yet.
