  • 6 Cafés Open Early in Harajuku—Begin Your Day Luxuriously with Breakfast

    13.February.2018 | FEATURES / FOOD

    Hi, everyone. I’m Ellie, and I work at the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

     

    Relaxing in a café with a cup of coffee in the early morning – days off like these are true happiness, aren’t they? The truth is, shops in Harajuku open a little late, so there aren’t many places that open in the early hours.

     

    I’m going to recommend to you several cafés in Harajuku that open in the morning and serve breakfast. Be sure to stop by any of them before you begin your day’s shopping.

They don’t have a morning menu, but they’re open at 9:30 on weekdays and 8:30 on weekends and holidays, so you can still enjoy your morning with their regular menu. A popular item on the menu are their soufflé pancakes. They’re fluffy and just melt in your mouth. There’s a range of different types you can choose from, from pancakes with seasonal fruits to a tiramisu-style pancake. Why not try finding your favourite?

    Bills – Tokyo Plaza Omotesando Harajuku

    Bills serve the world’s most famous breakfast. This branch can be found about 5-minutes’ walk from Harajuku Station on the seventh floor of Tokyo Plaza. Tokyo Plaza is closed in the morning times, but the elevator up to bills is functional. They have a big selection on their breakfast menu. I recommend the ricotta cheese pancake. The honeycomb butter smells sweet on the fluffy and moist pancake. Their specially-made scrambled egg is also exquisite and just melts on your tongue. The world’s best is right here, so be sure to experience it.

    “Bread, Espresso &” is a café and bakery 5-minutes’ walk from Omotesando Station and 15-minutes’ walk from Harajuku Station. This place has immense popularity and has people lining up outside in the morning before it opens. Their popular menu item is the French toast they serve, which is only available on weekdays in the morning and at teatime. The French toast is thick, the outside is crunchy, and the inside is soft. It’s known to even sell out very quickly, so you’d best be up early if you want a bite.

  • Taiwanese Model Kimi Visits Harajuku’s Tourist Spots in a Kimono

    25.January.2018 | FEATURES / SPOT

    Hi there, Shiota here. I’m the director of the MOSHI MOSHI BOX, the official Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

     

    A routine activity done often when travelling to places like Kyoto and Asakusa is to dress up in a kimono and walk the streets. In fact, quite recently the number of kimono rental stores in Harajuku has been on the increase.

     

    Today, immensely popular Taiwanese model kimi (紀ト心) is going to take us to see some great kimono spots around Tokyo.

     

    If we’re talking kimono rental in Harajuku, then look no further than the MOSHI MOSHI Kimono Salon!

    kimy__162037843

    This spot is located inside the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center and offers a diverse range of kimono, from vintage wears to the kind of colourful garbs you’d expect to see in Harajuku. Whatever it is you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find it here.

     

    kimy__162037842

    The kimono that kimi chose has small dots against red cloth. Since she’s a huge cat lover, the obi she picked was love at first sight.

     

    kimy__162037841

    She left her hairstyle to the hair and make-up staff in the shop. A simple change of hairstyle made for a more glamorous feel.

    With her style complete, kimi’s cuteness took on a slightly more adult, mature look.

     

    Well, without further ado, let’s head on out to the streets of Harajuku!

    Ura-Harajuku photo spot as seen on social media and TV

    kimy__162037840

    The first place kimi visited was the famous wall art that is popular right now. To find it, head down the street between Murasaki Sports and New Balance located along Meiji-Dori and walk to the end.

     

    kimy__162037839

    kimi was a little hungry, so while on her way to see the wall art she stopped off at the ice cream shop Doubutsuen on the left-hand side of the street. She bought an electric bulb soda along with some sweets that are all the rage right now in Harajuku.

    Taking a chill stroll along Yoyogi Park avenue

    kimy__162037850

    The next place she headed to was Yoyogi Park located next to Meiji Shrine. The park is famous for its very beautiful scenery; in spring the cherry blossoms flourish and in autumn the ginkgo trees shine.

    When we shot these photos, it was period when the leaves on the ginkgo trees fall. The sheet of yellow that stretches to a horizon was out of the world. There’s benches dotted all around the park, so you can relax if you need a break from walking in your kimono.

    Tōgō Shrine is right next to the tourist hotspot that is Takeshita Street

    kimy__162037849

    You wouldn’t believe that Tōgō Shrine is situated in the middle of Harajuku. Despite being around the hustle and busy of the busy town, time flows quietly and calmly here. It’s also diagonally opposite to the MOSHI MOSHI BOX.

     

    It’s beautiful in the daytime, but its sacredness elevates when you see it lit up at night. Weddings are held here, so if you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a bride in traditional Japanese wedding attire.

  • Peter Luger Steak House Opens First Japanese Branch at Ebisu Garden Place

    02.May.2021 | FOOD / SPOT

    Hailing originally from Brooklyn, the 130-year-old Peter Luger Steak House has announced the opening of its first-ever Japanese branch which will welcome customers at Ebisu Garden Place in Tokyo this September with its 3-storeys of red brick.

    Peter Luger is credited with spreading the mouth-watering wonder of dry-aged beef steak to the world which has made the restaurant’s name globally famous. The restaurant of course wields a Michelin Star and has been featured high on the Zagat Survey for over 30 years.

     

    The secret behind Peter Luger’s signature ingredient

    The restaurant’s beef fillet and New York strip are signature items on the menu, both of which are made from porterhouse steak. Their steak is also made from USDA Prime beef which is dry-aged by hand to intensify the flavour and aroma.

     

    The porterhouse is placed directly onto the broiler and seasoned solely with salt. The steak is flipped only once during the broiling process. A knob of melted butter is added to a serving platter and the steak is sliced atop it. It’s then placed back into the broiler for a few minutes depending on the doneness requested by the customer. It’s this process that gives Peter Luger’s steaks their deliciousness. 

     

    Brooklyn red brick building and theatre decor

    The Japanese branch takes inspiration from the Brooklyn restaurant with its red brick exterior.

    The first floor is home to the bar where customers can enjoy food and cocktails. There’s also a takeout shop with gifts and other items.

    The second floor is the spacious dining space which is home to Peter Ruger’s first-ever open kitchen. The third floor is another seating area with balcony-like seats so you can look out over the city.

     

    There are seven private dining rooms of varying sizes for those looking a little more intimacy and privacy. The restaurant’s lighting was also designed by a New York designer.
