Unlike Omote Sando, here you can find some inexpensive, frivolous shopping.

People watching is the main draw in Harajuku, to see and be seen.

  1. Wow!! SOooo interesting!! Love the pics!!
    Please let me know when you post more!
    Hope to visit there someday…looks fascinating!!

  2. Harajuku is one of my fave areas. Things actually look *milder* than when I hung out there 20 years ago. How is that possible???

  3. These are great. I just added Tokyo to my list of places to visit before I die. 🙂

  4. The photos are terrific, but what makes it outstanding is your insight and commentary.

  5. How cool!! We really should have the equivalent of Harajuku in Mexico…unfortunately, still people here are not as daring in terms of fashion as Harajuku people, and it just would be so much more fun!!! Can’t wait to visit Tokyo!
