After visiting Matsumoto the day before, we had to make a game plan for when we would visit the other cities on our list. So the next two days were spent back in Tokyo to accommodate our plan.
We started the day in Harajuku with our minds set on going to an owl cafe. Unfortunately, you need to make a reservation a day or so ahead of time because it’s that popular, so we couldn’t do that. Instead, we chilled outside of a cute little spot called CookieTime, that specializes in cookies, shakes, and flat whites. I bought a flat white and five mini chocolate chip cookies. This spot was actually featured on a video by one of my favorite YouTube J-vloggers. Sadly, I didn’t see here there, or anywhere in Japan….

Without much else on our list for the day, we swung by the famous Cafe Kitsune since we were in the area again. This time it was thankfully open! It is pretty pricey, but it was on my list of cafes to visit. I got the delicious matcha latte.
For dinner, we had some yummy katsu-don; fried cutlet over rice. YUM.
