Immerse yourself in Kawaii culture, characterised by its cute and innocent aesthetic and vividly bright colours, on this Kawaii Culture Tour of Tokyo. We'll see plenty of colourful outfits, food and even take unique photos. Let's go!
Kawaii Culture Tour
We'll meet at 11 am at the Harajuku Tourist Information Center and, accompanied by our English-speaking guide, step into the world of Kawaii. Kawaii recreates an innocent and bucolic Japanese aesthetic and is displayed in numerous products, such as toys, bags and clothes.
Our tour will begin with a Purikara photo session, which is very trendy right now with young Japanese people. You'll be able to take some of these fun collectable photos as a souvenir of the experience.
Next we'll visit the Togo Shrine and Tokyu Plaza and stop at several Kawaii food stalls to see the brightly-decorated food. One of these will be the Sakura-Tei restaurant, which specialises in okonomiyaki, a typical Japanese dish.
The tour will then take us through several cafés that are significant in Kawaii culture, such as the Maid Cafe. Here, the waitresses are dressed in different types of Kawaii clothing, similar to the costumes of maids from a century ago. You can also see how they make heart gestures with their hands or have your photo taken with them.
To round off this Kawaii culture tour, you'll have some free time to explore the typical Kawaii shops and buy different products that reflect this urban culture in Tokyo. We'll then return to the starting point and say our goodbyes at around 2 pm.
Tour + Owl Café Visit
If you'd like to add even more fun to your experience, you can also choose to visit the Owl Café. In this popular café, you'll spend 1 hour relaxing and having a drink in the company of owls - you can even feed them! You'll be surprised by the calm behaviour of these gentle birds, who are used to being around people.
