Squishy squishy, I wanna have you both!
Cafe Hammock Tribe - A hammock cafe inspired by the beach. They serve Thai / Asian cuisines. The best cafe I've ever been to. Definitely a must-visit hangout place in Shimokitazawa.
Darwin Room - Where you can find a real otter, zebra, butterflies among many other animals preserved. They also have a small cafe area where you can dine. I go there mostly for their items but I would definitely love to stay longer next time. The store's atmosphere is just magical!
Flamingo - My 2010 self would definitely gush over this store. You can find authentic vintage clothes from the 40's to the 80's.
２丁目３番地 (Nichome Sanbachi) - A toy store that sells used items from the 90's or even older. I found Sailor Moon, Star Wars, Hello Kitty toys and more! They're usually 50% OFF on weekends. Now, who wants to go toy shopping with me?
Cafe Hammock Tribe's green curry is my ultimate fave.
Where to go next? Can you guess?
Peace, love, hammock.
What a beautiful, beautiful place to live in.

Other places I have to discover more..
Broken Doll was closed when we visited.. I have 1000 more reasons to go back.
MOTTAINAI flea market because nothing should ever be wasted. In Filipino language, the term mottainai could be directly translated to "sayang." For example when I was younger my mom would always tell me to always eat as I've served and never leave leftovers or else it would be "sayang." I'm not sure what's the direct translation for that in English. In Japan, we usually use the term similarly to how we do in the Philippines. We reuse and recycle everything from milk boxes to cans.
A weekend flea market in Shimokitazawa is coined after that thought since every material they've used is recycled! How amazing and you wouldn't believe how beautiful they are..
Perfect for Christmas lovers like me, don't you think?
I will see you soon, Fuji san. Planning my trip there for the New Year's. Are you as excited as me?
This half body mannequin freaked me out..
I still have to visit Cateriam Cat Cafe next time but for now I hope you enjoy the loveliest village in Japan. A place full of soul. At last, I belong.
