Takeshita-dori

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 3 March 2016 in Documentary & Street.

The last time I was in Harajuku I went to Jingu-bashi looking for the "Harajuku Girls", the legendary cosplayers. A few shots of them begin here.

That scene has faded but, the narrow Takeshita Street is still a pilgrimage site for teens from all over Japan. There are some cool sights along this street packed shoulder-to-shoulder with humanity.

what a hustle and bustle! reminds me of london's carnaby street in its heyday.
