Harajuku Street: Tokyo

Happy Tuesday Y'all. 

Today I'm talking all about the Harajuku area of Tokyo. 


Harajuku is known as the center of Japanese youth fashion and culture. (At least according to the Internet.)  On Sundays traffic is stopped on some of the main streets of the area and it's a perfect day to walk and sight see all the interesting fashion choices of the Japanese youth. This was the top thing on Matt's list to do, so we made sure to stop off here. Harajuku is really close to the Meiji Shrine, and it's possible to see both places in one day. 

It was raining when we went, so I think it really cut down the crowds. I wish we could have seen this place at its full capacity, but we were able to still see some cool things and people. 




 {Mmmm… banana chocolate crepe} 











Visiting Japan is always so much fun. It's nice to see all the different fashion and subcultures. Here in Korea there is just one look the youth are going for. They pretty much all wear the same style, but in Japan everything is more diverse. 

If you are in Tokyo- Harajuku should be a place where you visit.

  3. Everything is so colorful and kitschy! I'd love to wander around and take pictures of all of the bold outfits! Indulging on a crepe wouldn't be too bad either :)

    1. Courtney- It was perfect! I loved getting the pictures of all the outfits. And the crepe was wonderful. I think I liked it better than the ones I had in France. :)
