So far we've taken a look at a few spots around Tokyo in the Summer:-


And the theme continues! Today we take a gander around the Harajuku area where you can find the latest trends in fashion, food and accessories for young folks - in particular high school girls. To get to Harajuku, get off at Harajuku station on the JR line or Omotesando station on the Ginza, Chiyoda or Hanzomon line.

First photo - here we have some folks dressed up as Taiyaki!

Lovely Yukata girls.

Entrance to Takeshita Dori - come here for cheap clothing and food, good crepe and hang out with young folks.

These photos are called Namashashin [生写真[なましゃしん]] - paparazzi photos of male and female idols.

Sometimes you will see "CLOSING DOWN (for refurbishment) SALE!" notices here n there.

The mango ice cream crepe here is good!

Need some 1/3 scale versions of these.

Shop dedicated to K-POP goodies.

"Available only here - Geki (super) Kawaii Pop!"

If you are bored of your dog then turn it into a fish with some fish-wear.

"TIME SALE" is where they discount stuff between certain times - for fashion or food. Do they do Time Sales in your neck of the woods?

Love the old design of Harajuku station.

I had a Tamagochi when they first came out - it died all the time.

Its so awesome that you can normally see stuff like this on the streets of Tokyo.

AKB48 official shop.

A room for happy people.

We have a chain of stores here called WOMB.

Shoes to make a kick to the goolies even more painful.

This is the bridge where you will find cosplayers and gothloli girls n boys on a Sunday.
