Japan Adventures: Harajuku

[Previously on: Japan Adventures]


The famed Harajuku, where the cool kids hang out and shop. We felt so hip. Everything was colorful and crowded and crazy. No, really:



You basically have to make a decision and then jump straight in. Once you're in the middle of that crowd, there's no turning back. Keep on moving till it spits you out the other side.


Along the way we saw things like this:

And THIS:


GAHHH!!



Whew. Made it.


Because of the huge crowd and the fact that the shops were incredibly tiny, we only ventured into a few. There were women screaming about sales. People were wearing awesomely ridiculous outfits. I lost a mitten. Colin found the mitten. It was a whirlwind of an hour.

Loved it.

Wild!...

When you're in town.. Culver City, Ca... stop by "Royal-T" Cafe, for some Harajuku-Lover-Hello-Kitty-Tea!

It sits in a gallery that is a slice of Urban Japan Life...
where the waitresses wear socks up to their knees.

Cheers!
