Not only is Harajuku Tokyo’s number one shopping district, it’s also one of my favourite places in Japan to just people watch (A bit of a snobby comment for someone that's only been there twice, oh well!). Where else in the world would you see a man wearing fishbowl earrings and a Jack Sparrow lookalike dog all in one day? Harajuku exhibits the weird n wacky, the beautiful and the just plain gaudy in an overt yet very timid way. The few people I experienced were dressed in some of the craziest outfits I’ve ever seen, yet they were extremely shy and seemed to avoid attention at all costs. I wonder if tourists taking photographs make these young girls feel more like freak shows than fashion inspirations? I find myself feeling a bit ignorant and more and more curious about the reasons behind their fashion choices. Time for some research I reckon!
PS. A noteworthy end to the day may have included something along the lines of a deep fried pizza...oissshhiii yo!
