Tokyo Travel: Totoro Cream Puffs!
I just got back from a short trip to Tokyo and the undeniable high point of the adventure was my first day there...

I ATE TOTORO CREAM PUFFS.

And guys...

IT WAS SO DELICIOUS.

I stopped in Shirohige's Cream Puff Shop and got this gorgeous strawberry puff for breakfast (because I'm an adult) They are baked fresh in-house and have a ton of seasonal flavors. The strawberry had huge chunks of fresh strawberry inside!
Each puff is ¥440 (about $4) and is HUGE. I was travelling alone so I could only get one, but if I had had help I definitely would have tried to original cream puff!

To get there:


- Go to the Setagaya-Daita station (it is not an express stop, take the local train!) - Come out the West exit and turn right at the first main street. - Take another right at the next turn and walk straight. - It looks like you've hit a dead end but keep walking! There should be a sign for the TOLO cafe. Follow that! Its the cute little house on the corner! You can't miss it!
The cafe upstairs is usually booked up so getting a table is hard, but there are a few cute tables outside for you to use! That's where I sat :) And I TOTALLY felt no regrets eating something so cute(and I've been a vegetarian for 10 years muhaha)
