Another thing that I’m fascinated with, Harajuku. Mostly, um Everything! Here are some images taken at the district. Harrow Innovation! If you like what you see, Tokyo Fashion on FaceBook is a great place to start…they share and take really cool photos. PS: This IS NOT a Halloween Post, it’s what an ordinary day in Harajuku looks like.
From Wikipedia: Harajuku (原宿 “meadow lodging”) is a district in Shibuya ward, Tokyo Prefecture.
The general name of the area from Harajuku station to the Omotesando area. According to the current Japanese addressing system, the neighbourhood ‘Jingu-mae’ is included in this greater area. In the 1990s there was an influx of famous overseas fashion brand flagship store openings. At the same time, new fashion trend shops spread in the residential areas of Jingu-mae blocks 3 and 4, and the area came to be known as Ura-Harajuku (‘Harajuku Back Streets’). In 2006, Omotesando Hills was opened. In 2008 the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line was installed and is expected to further expand in the future.
