At the end of the month May, I went on a press trip to Japan with Louis Vuitton! When I was given this opportunity, I was beyond excited as Louis Vuitton has always been a brand that I genuinely love from the bottom of my heart.
I was selected to represent Malaysia, together with Scha Alyahya, who’s a famous Malaysian actress. We had such a great time together there!
On 28th May (Tuesday), I flew over the Japan together with my photographer – Jaegen.
As soon as we touched down at Tokyo, we were welcomed by the LV team at Narita Airport.
We were escorted to Conrad Tokyo where we will be spending the next few nights.
Address: 1 Chome-9-1 Higashishinbashi, Minato City, Tokyo 105-7337, Japan.
We had some time to prep for the dinner with LV regional team & regional media at Namiki667.
Address: NAMIKI667 ハイアットセントリック 銀座店
After the dinner, we went to a Sky Lounge called “Stellar Garden” at level 33 of The Prince Park Tower Tokyo where it overlooks the majestic Tokyo Tower through the huge cascading glass panes.
The night view of the skyline was paranomic!
Address: 4-chome-8-1 Shibakoen, Minato City, Tokyo-to 105-0011, Japan.
After that, I went to Don Don Donki near our hotel. It’s like the Japanese version of 7Eleven – they have almost everything you need!
If you’re hungry in the middle of the night and craving for some snacks, this is the right place to go.

The main highlight on Day 2 was the Press Presentation for Fall-Winter 2019 by Nicolas Ghesquière at Amana Kaigan Studio.
Address: 3 Chome-9-18 Kaigan, Minato City, Tokyo 105-0022, Japan.
This collection is “geolocated” as the designer had taken inspired from Beaubourg where there are a melting pot of tribes & they get to express themselves freely.
I love that Ghesquière went with a more unconventional take on the designs and not just the basics. Everything at the presentation that really showcased Louis Vuitton’s classiness and innovation in fashion.
The particular design that caught my eyes was the Louis Vuitton Keepall designed by Virgil Abloh. He’s a pure fashion wizard!
Huge love for LV Malaysia for the incredible experience!
Had a fruitful day at the presentation with other international influencers from Singapore, Vietnam and so on.
A free & easy day for us to slow down the pace & bask in beauty of the land of sushissss. We took the opportunity to go for sightseeing around Tokyo city and did a few photo shoots in a couple of outfits.
1. TeamLab Planets
ADDRESS: 6 Chome-1-1 6 Toyosu, Koto City, Tokyo 135-0061, Japan.
At TeamLab Planets, they have is a group of artworks that form one borderless world. Here, you get all the fancy projections of lights & patterns – it’s truly a piece of art.
The digital art are very vibrant and has different variety. If you want to have a shot of creating Tara Milktea inspired photos, a visit to TeamLab Planet is a must!
Address: 东京都新宿区高田马场4-9-18 畔上セブンビル1F
This roadside BBQ stall is visited by Jay Chou during one of the episodes of 锋味. They offer a wide variety of animal intestines and meat.
If you’re a Jay Chou fan and you’re planning to travel in Japan, you might as well add this into your itinerary 🙂
3. Chavaty Ice Cream
Address: 4 Chome-6 Jingumae, Shibuya City, Tokyo 150-0001, Japan.
I was craving for some matcha ice cream when I was in Japan, so we decided to try out this matcha ice cream at Chavaty.
It tastes decent, but the best one is still the one I had at Hong Kong. A little bit disappointed but it still serves some matcha goodness nonetheless.
Address: 2 Chome-2-1 Dogenzaka, Shibuya City, Tokyo 150-0043, Japan.
If you’re in Shibuya and would like to take some Insta-worthy photos, the Shibuya crossing intersection is definitely a must-go.
The nightlife of this city is one brimming with energy and life!
One thing to bear in mind is that a lot of the shopping complexes and shops close around 8pm – 8:30pm, so if you’re planning to have a shopping spree at Japan, make sure to go early so you don’t have to rush.
Once again, thank you so much to Louis Vuitton for having me on this press trip to Japan. Have you guys been to Japan before? Feel free to comment some of the interesting places down below!
