Harajuku – Takeshita Dori Tokyo's Colorful Street Fashion

Harajuku - Takeshita Dori budget shopping street in tokyo, Japan

Went to Harajuku on my recent trip to Japan, a significant fashion and shopping region in Tokyo, famous for its Harajuku Girls and Harajuku fashion ^^

I did not explore much of Harajuku, other than the Takeshita-dori – which is located just opposite Harajuku Station. Takeshita-dori is a long narrow pedestrian only street packed with fashion stores and cafes, which are aimed at the younger generation so you will see a load of fashionable folks/students after school hours.

To get to Harajuku, get off at Harajuku station on the JR line or get off at Omotesando station if you are on the Ginza, Chiyoda or Hanzomon line.

Stuffs up for sale at only 390 Yen, as I mentioned earlier a lot of the fashion stores are targeting the younger folks and students, so you can find lots of budget fashion apparels.

Here you can buy a ‘Lucky Box’ for 300 yen, which you have no idea of what’s inside the boxes. It could be a portable game console or just a bag of tissues ^^;
