Yuzawaya and all Kawaii'd out


I made it to Yuzawaya in Kichijoji - wow! I mean wow! It was AMAZING! Unfortunately I had to be fairly restrained as I've reached my suitcase limits and am probably going to have to pay excess... There was a group of women knitting too. The yarn went on for about 15 aisles -loads of different brands and types. I bought some love variegated 'Scottish Heather' all purples and greens, and some variegated autumn colours from the same brand. I also got some organic cotton in quiet subtle shades. A few sets of needles in Japanese sizes so I have in-betweenies for those gauge crisis', and also some cherry ribbon and handle parts. I could have stayed in there all day, and spent millions...

The boy didn't seem to realise just how big it was - even though we left at breakfast and I had planned dinner in Kichijoji.


We also made it to the infamous Kiddyland in Harajuku - another wow! Probably 6 floors I think.



I think I'm all Kawaii'd out now :)



... and I finally managed to suss the UFO grabbers and win one or two ...

Oh well - we have to pack now so I guess the next coupla posts will have to wait until I get back - it's been utterly amazing here! Brilliant - well worth it!

I hear Japanese Retailers stock prices have soared since your visit !!! lol Its a pity you couldn't put the yarn etc. in a vacuum pack to save on space (although that doesn't solve the problem of weight, hhmmmm!)
Glad you've had such a fabulous time - it looked wonderful on your blog too.
