OUR KAWAII TOKYO: HISTORY
“Hi from Saitama! I’m now with Kaila working for Our Kawaii Tokyo. How to describe our OKT duties? It involves printing old-school polaroid ish photos of our whole Tokyo experience, maximizing Kaila’s beloved Totoro washi tapes and stickers, silly thick paper too huge for the scanner, writing endlessly ’til it suck up all our brain cells and all good kind of stress. I’m heading back to Osaka tomorrow and I’m surely gonna miss all of these but I’m super excited because it’s going to be another huge ashventure (short for Ashley’s adventures). In this post, you could find some old and new recap posts from Our Kawaii Tokyo.”
True enough, we made it like a scrap book / journaling style
Our work is to give you tips / suggestions about Our Kawaii Tokyo the most personal way possible thus the kawaii information booth (so you can ask us anything about Tokyo)
One of the most versatile cafes in Tokyo, The Guest Cafe & Diner is always featured in our blog
Purikura time! (Machines that make you look like an instant doll) When we were just starting Our Kawaii Tokyo blog, it was just Kaila and I. However, our real goal is to make a book but we couldn’t do as much.. We were so happy when Allie finally joined our team. She created all the amazing layouts (and art) you’ll see in the book!

Kaila in Harajuku
It’s really tough to make this e-book since Tokyo changed so much for the past 2 years. Here are some of my Harajuku photos taken in 2015 when we were just starting Our Kawaii Tokyo:
Iromono‘s doily art wall – I’m a really big fan of all their artists
Me in Harajuku (throwback photo)
Wall Harajuku and their somehow spring/summer collection (2015) – just imagine Japanese and Japanese-inspired designers and their inner garment/ swim wear collection
Barbie in Laforet limited collection with some Harajuku brands
Spinns 2015 collection is also Barbie (and Disney) themed
Allie in Shibuya
Shinjuku and me
