[Tokyo Fall 2008] Takeshita-Dori: Crepes!

We walked back toward the Harajuku Station after visiting Meiji Shrine. We were going to Takeshita-dori.

Looking back at Harajuku Station across street.

Takeshita-dori is said to be one of the hottest shopping street in Tokyo. A lot of "fashion trends" were developed here. While we were there we saw a lot of Cosplay, and other fashion clothing and accessory stores.

Takeshita-dori (Takeshita street).

But we were there for the crepes. Takeshita-Dori is said to be the starting place for the "Japanese-style" crepe culture, where crepes became a popular street food in Japan.

We walked around, checked out fun shops, and then saw the super popular crepe shops! They were right across from each other.

And there was Angels Heart Crepes.

Which one should we go with?

Each had so many choices!

I love these faux crepe samples. They looked so real. Awesome.

You really couldn't go wrong with either of the shops. It all came down to which ingredients you want, or which crepe sample models or photos you like.

We went with Marion.

I don't quite remember which crepes we got, but I do remember we both got dessert ones... there were also savory crepe choices, but dessert-y sounded good at the time. They were really good, the the girls making crepes were really cute, too. :)

Most Japanese people don't walk and eat, so everyone was standing by the little side street between Marion and Angels Heart and enjoying the crepes with smiles.
