29/07/12 - Last day in Japan for Summer! Hanging out in Shibuya 最後の日〜 渋谷で買い物

7:59:00 PM 12 Comments A+ a-

Hey guys!

This post is going to be my last post about my quick Japan trip in July when Liz Lisa flew me over to meet me. I still have A LOT more Japan posts coming up though! I still have about another 3 weeks worth of blogs from my Japan trip at the start of the year haha. I've also been trying to edit a lot more videos lately too, so expect lots of frequent videos on both my main Youtube and my Vlog Youtube channels!

I don't have too many photos to share during my last day in Japan. Japanese summer is quite horrible, very humid and sticky, so I didn't feel like taking photos most of the time :(

Anyway, on this day I decided to spend the day shopping with one of my Youtube subscribers, Tomoko! Tomoko messaged me before at the start of the year asking if I'll be in Japan during the summer. At the time I had no plans to go to Japan in summer so I said I probably wouldn't be. When I announced that I was going to Japan again because Liz Lisa contacted me, she messaged me again saying she wished that we can go shop at Shibuya109 together. Since I had a day free, and I never would've been given these amazing opportunities without the help and support of my subscribers (you guys mean a lot to me!), I thought why not? I told her that I would love to meet her and go shopping!

It was actually a disaster for me that morning. I kind of overslept a little bit, so I was rushing a lot. While curling my hair I burnt my finger (I always seem to have trouble with curling irons in Japan =_= The previous time I was in Japan I burnt my neck =_=), so that resulted with me sucking on my thumb for a lot of the day hahaha. I ran down to Shibuya109 to meet Tomoko... when I was half way there I realized I had "forgot" my wallet, ran back to my hotel room, couldn't find it, then realized it was at the bottom of my bag. I think I made her wait for like 30 minutes? So sorry T_T

Anyway, here is an OOTD photo!


Got to Shibuya109 to meet up with Tomoko, so we just walked around to go shopping!

Stopped by Liz Lisa, I wanted to say bye to Yumi-chan since I was leaving the next day.

She's the store manager of the Shibuya109 Liz Lisa store ^^

After a few hours of shopping, we decided to go have lunch! We went to a really cute restaurant that makes all organic food!





The food was really good!


Tomoko!

After lunch, I wanted to go to Harajuku to do a bit of shopping. Little did I know that it was a Sunday, it was SUPER crowded, and being a really hot and humid day... it was crazy!! I'm so sorry for dragging you all the way here Tomoko! haha T_T



After we headed back to Shibuya since I was meeting another friend there. We went back to Shibuya109 to rest on the top floor while waiting. Everytime I go back to Japan, I meet my friend Sena, who went to highschool with me! She is now working as a singer in Japan!

Since Tomoko had to leave to go back earlier (she doesn't live in Tokyo so the train ride will be quite long), we went to take Purikura together!


Tomoko and I!

Oh, and if you guys haven't seen yet, I actually vlogged a bit on this day in Japan. It's a really quick OOTD + vlog, I have a lot more from Japan coming soon though!


Sena and I then decided to go get some dinner!





Sena and I!

We couldn't hang out long because I had to go back to my hotel to pack my bag.. and I had to leave at 6am the next day to get to the airport T_T

Just some photos as I was flying over Japan




Can you spot Mt. Fuji?

That's all from my blog posts of my quick Japan trip in the summer! Once again thank-you to everyone who supported me throughout the past year on Youtube and my blog! I really appreciate what all of you do for me ♡ I wouldn't have been able to experience these amazing opportunities if it weren't for you guys! I will keep working hard to make more interesting blog posts and videos! There are still a lot of exciting things coming up for Liz Lisa also, I will do my best!

I'm guessing it really isn't humid [ever] in Perth? At least not as much as Japan. Obviously I haven't been there, but I know what humidity is like, and the thing I hate most about it is the sweaty feeling. I hate the thought of walking around stinky and ruining clothes. It was really humid in baltimore, despite being late august/early september, but now the temperature is really dropping. Another thing I have to gripe about is how frizzy my hair can get. I'm black, so it has a tendency to "go back" on me, and it will lose definition, as one huge mass of, well, squiggles. Did you have any melon soda? That sounds like it would be refreshing. I'm wondering what some of this food is you all were eating... Also, those burns...you poor thing (i know how it is). I actually burned my eyelid pretty foolishly trying to make some ganache. I was melting the white chocolate, holding a metal bowl with i silicone mitt, when I decided to feel how hot the mitt was getting, so I put it against the side of my face. I immediately ran to the bathroom sink and splashed my face with cold water to soothe the stinging a bit. XD But yeah, I'd really like to see what you got on these trips eventually. And about Liz Lisa, did the people you met with work for Vent Int, or just the Liz Lisa division? I saw some stuff from Juge Etta recently that I really like too... Can't wait to hear more!

Nope! Perth summer never gets as humid, it's really hot and dry but I prefer that to humid >< I love melon soda! haha, i always drink a lot of it every time I'm in Japan xD At the organic restaurant I went to, I had cus cus (sp?) was definitely something different haha. Ahh yeah, I hate getting burns, I have to be more careful T_T The people I met work for Vent Int, so I'll be working with other brands besides Liz Lisa in the future ^^

Lovely post! I just have a question—do you remember the name of that restaurant with organic food? My mom mostly only eats organic food, and it'd be great to find a place in Tokyo that has that. Thanks!
