1. Before the boom of "Millenia Le Pink" started,
Tea Stand ...7 store was its pioneer!
Today´s walk will start at exit 2 of Kitasando station which is located
between Harajuku and Yoyogi area.
As soon as you get out of the station turn to the right and soon after
you will see Starbuck´s mark★on the other side to the left

Keep walking on Meiji street for about 2 minutes and you can
spot a pink building. The first place where we gonna stop will be here
at Tea Stand...7.

"Millenia Le Pink" color looks exactly like this one!"

Sweets at this store are made from homemade blended black tea leaves.

displayed on them.

"This is "Royal Milk Soft Cream" which is made from black tea leaves
(price 500 yen tax included).
Soft cream with aroma of black tea flavor gently drifting in the air,
might be a perfect sweet for adult snack time."

By the way, this shop was taking SNS photos using this color even before
"Millenia Le Pink" started to be popular. Therefore we
do not exaggerate if we say that this shop is a pioneer of
"Millenia Le Pink" boom!

Let´s continue our search for next place with "Millenia Le Pink" color.
Take one street next to Meiji street and keep walking towards the south.
Approximately in the middle you will pass around popular curry shop called

The recommended menu is "Cheese Keema Curry" which top
is covered by mozzarella cheese and egg yolk.
The spice is quite effective therefore spicy curry lovers will surely love it.
If you have a chance do not hesitate to visit the place, it is worth it.
However it does not contain today´s walk target, therefore we will keep
moving to a next spot.

2. Would you like to experience a photo booth in the café? Why not!
Find a "Purikura" machine in café´s basement area!

If you keep walking further for about 3 more minutes, you will find
second "Millenia Le Pink" color spot called CAROLINE DINER.

"Left/A red bench and a parasol are marked with a sign

"Right/Once you enter the store, staff will accompany you down
using the spiral stair case to basement area."

The appearance and the interior image looks like from American 60´ties.
It might not seem to be that much pinky so far but.....to your surprise,
at the back of the store basement is placed "Purikura" machine (which is
a photo booth that prints out cards and stickers of the resulting photograph,
which are then traded among friends) in "Millenia Le Pink" color!!

"Purikura machine presence is unexpected.
It is exciting to find it here, isn´t it."

This shop is inspired by American style therefore they have
"Purikura" machine inside the café. The staff explains that in U.S.
"Purikura" machine can be found in many bars or cafés.
When you visit such spot with your friends, you may want to take photos
together to keep that moment as a good memory.

Compare to Japanese "Purikura", this one does not have installed
processing functions, however, it is easy to use it as it is similar to
snapshot photos.

By the way, one of the reasons why café owner promotes
"Millenia Le Pink" color seems to be his hobby in pink Cadillac.
The cute Cadillac toy placed on the top of the "Purikura" machine
use to be owner´s toy when he was a little child♪.

"The logo with the sign "Caroline" looks lovely."

If you visit this place, do not forget to order also
"Millenia Le Pink" color drink! The store has a wide selection but
how about having "Peach Float" (price 800 yen tax included)?
The drink is decorated with three yummy cherries on the top?

you will realize that it is just slightly sweet and its taste
is just perfect.
