4 Must Try Harajuku Foods
4. Giant Candy Floss (..Or Cotton Candy if you call it that)
The first time I laid eyes on these giant candy floss mountains my sweet-tooth heart skipped a beat. This very instagrammable treat is sold at Totti Candy Factory on Takeshita dori and will set you back 900 yen. You can also get smaller portions for 600-650 yen, but then again where's the fun in that?
Tip: If candy floss isn't really your thing, they also sell super adorable cake pops for 400 yen!
3. Cookie Time Café
Tip: Make sure to sign up to their mailing list with the iPad instore, you can win a variety of free things - I won a pair of earmuffs!
2. Kawaii Monster Café
The Kawaii Monster Café is a colourful and crazy wonderland. The café has been a popular attraction since it opened in 2015 and the concept of the café is that it is inside the belly of a monster called Choppy, as you need to walk through his mouth to enter the café.. which is actually kind of a gross idea if you think about it? There are 4 areas that you can choose to be seated in, all with a unique but equally crazy aesthetic. Even the waitresses are in dressed in crazy but cute costumes. It is generally agreed that the food isn't super delicious and is probably overpriced, but most people agree that it is worth experiencing this café at least once!
Tip: You will have to pay a seating charge of 500 yen and order at least one food item and one drink item.
Tip: Most Japanese people don't eat and walk, so it's better to eat your crêpe by the stand.
