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!
