Today all of us are headed to Harajuku and the gaming district. In Harajuku it was a culture shock for me. The girls dressed very different but it was kind of cool. From their hair all the way to their clothes were very colorful. It’s nice how in Japan you are accepted for who you are and no matter what you wear. But if they were in the States they would be definitely be judged and thought of to be weird. I feel like maybe in Japan you are able to express yourself more.
Later on we went to the gaming district. Within the gaming district there are a ton a maid cafe’s. Maid cafe’s are very popular in the Japanese culture. They have this unique way of doing things at the cafe. We ended up eating at Maidreamin. Every time a dish came out we had to sing a chant with the maid. I tried this desert it was good it was pancakes that were decorated with a cute face with two scoops of chocolate almond ice cream. It’s very animated and original.
