Japanese love the idea for sightseeing and nibbling on snacks while doing so! Known as “tabearuki,” literally walking while eating, it’s a great way to discover Japanese treats. This time, we introduce a few of our favorites in Harajuku, Tokyo.

TOTTI CANDY FACTORY, Harajuku
Located in the middle of the famous Takeshita street of Harajuku. Here, cotton candy gets a colorful twist.
Only at the Harajuku branch, you can get a rainbow cotton candy for 900 yen!
Rainbow Cup Cotton Candy is for 600 yen.
Zaku Zaku offers a special treat called croquant chou, the first of its kind in Japan.
Basically, stick-shaped cream puffs that are crunchy coated with almonds and filled with cream.
The outer layer is pleasingly crispy (zaku zaku means crunchy) and the soft, creamy custard oozes out with each bite. How about a snack while you go shop?
COISOF brings color to your life: sesame soft cream with crunchy colorful sprinkles.
1. coisof kuro goma (black sesame)

We visited just before Halloween and tried the amazing pumpkin version too!
The store is in a tiny alley but the pink exterior makes it very easy to find.
A different kind of zoo! 🐼🐷🐨🐯
Harajuku Doubutsuen (Zoo) is an ice cream parlor with a shopfront that looks like a vending machine!
We ordered an elephant and tiger but you can choose from five animals. B
