Recommendation by Lemi
You’re in for the (culture) shock of your life at Harajuku, Tokyo’s street fashion capital and alternative youth lifestyle hub. Spot teens flaunting outrageous costumes, mismatched styles, and punk-rock makeup as they casually strut their stuff along the district. Ask kindly, and they’ll even let you photograph them! While you’re here, get your fix of Japan’s over-the-top kawaii trend (かわいい, cute) at Takeshita Dori. It’s actually a street crammed with clothing boutiques, specialty stores, and fashionable food outlets. Take a break at Marion Crepes, and re-energize with one of the yummy (and pretty) French desserts displayed on the window.
