Yokohama is south of Tokyo and is near Tokyo Bay.. it has a theme park and its own little Chinatown!
There wasn’t too much to see here historically so I decided to focus on my favorite things there… food and shopping 😀
Elmo in the lobby:
By the waterfront:
I managed to capture a little fish jumping out of the water (it happened a LOT and at first I wasn’t sure what it was)
My friend works in one of these buildings and on the bottom there’s a MALL. SO JEALOUS.
Onto the shopping pics (mostly decor)!
Pretty little bento boxes reminiscent of Liberty of London prints:
See the donut themed container on the right? Loove!
More whimsical kitchen items:
They had this small section of designer homegoods… these little q-tip containers were nearly 40 bucks! Wow. Still cute though.
I like how warm and clean this dining setup is… Not too cold, far from traditional and very organic.
Adorable little houseplants:
The most adorable little kitchen island:
I’m a big tea drinker and I’ve NEVER seen tea steepers like these…strawberries!
Super cute (and maybe a tad creepy) cat vinyl figures for decor:
A closer look at the lingerie section… I like how in general Asia sells their lingerie in SETS… meaning bras and panties are completely matched and I feel like I’m getting a better deal this way. The ones here are a little more than $20/set:
Deco nails! I wanted to take a photo so I could remember and copy this style.. haha. I love how delicate the pink gradients are for each set. My favorite is the second set!
Bath goods.. seriously I was in HEAVEN. Their jewelry organizers and train cases were super gorgeous… you can see a few of them in the center here:
Super blinged out jewelry boxes:
The prettiest trash cans and toilet brushes I’ve ever seen (LOL)
Plastic and ceramic ANIMALS! Wow so strange especially those purple dinosaurs:
Cute little lamps! The apple ones up top are my favorite:
An interesting bedroom setup called “Glamorous Hunter!” Haha. (I love the string lights):
Bunny shaped pillows:
Pretty baskets with subtle washed out colors… you may think this is boring but I LOVE THIS kind of thing. Everyday items that are functional yet beautiful. I mean, come on.. compare this to what we have: RUBBERMAID.
Danish-modern style couch and coffee table.. the shapes and colors are right up my alley:
Guess what these are: toilet paper holders! And yes that is colored toilet paper:
Reallyyy cute elephant shaped teaware:
Metal “drop” trays.. perfect for ring collectors like me!
Throws in yummy colors:
Super cute vanity mirrors (the ones on the left are my favorite):
Jewel-toned toothbrushes (they actually have a little jewel detail on the bottom of each brush!)
Designer toothpastes by Breath Palette:
0: Mouth Gel (no flavor)
1: Amajio (?)
2: Tropical Pineapple
4: Freshness Yogurt
5: Ichibanzumi Green Tea
7: MONKEY BANANA (lolol!)
Slippers (the colors remind me of French macarons)
More bath accessories:
A peek at the food court. Seriously Japan food courts bring ours to SHAME. Look how clean and inviting it is!
Truthfully it was a little difficult to find boba in Japan. I was surprised to finally see a nicely displayed shop… and keeping with modern Japanese tradition they had ALL of their flavors on display in liquid form:
Speaking of food, had a wonderful dinner by the pier with a friend from college and his coworkers:
Mentaiko/fish roe pasta I think:
The most DELICIOUS blend of omuraisu and hayashi raisu:
A little berry tart!
The most RANDOM assortment of cell phone charms ever: (raw meat, raw fish, sushi, noodles, fruit)
“Poop”/unchii shaped gummi candy that was cola flavored. Yes I tried one.. not bad. Lol.
This was something like.. katsu flavored snacks. Maybe dried fish? I don’t quite remember but how strange is that!?
On a random note… while walking through Chinatown this guy was TOTALLY grabbing his girlfriend’s/wife’s butt.. check her out trying to peel his hand off. HAHA
We saw this massive Korean pop/drama store that sold literally everything you could think of.. and they were all emblazoned with every single K-star you could imagine. Pens, pencils, clocks, calendars, shirts, mugs, you name it!
My friend bought a calendar for his little sister (super cute)
Stairs leading up to MORE shopping! My mom would have died cuz she loves K-dramas. Lol.
Okay that’s it for Yokohama! One more Japan blog post to go!
Next post: Tokyo Part II!
