Harajuku, part 1: Harajuku girls

Harajuku girls


Harajuku station sits just one stop away from Shibuya. Technically a part of Shibuya ward, Harajuku is a few inches away on the colour spectrum of this eclectic city. It's famous for a number of things, but in recent years it's become especially famous for one thing: Harajuku girls.

Gwen Stefani popularized these denizens of central Tokyo in her music videos. But what you see there is only the tip of the iceberg. Harajuku girls come in all stripes, from goth to glam. They come to see each other, but most importantly, the come to be seen.
