Today I was thinking about Takeshita Street (竹下通り Takeshita-dori) in my work and I want to write a bit about it. Most probably you have never heard of this street in Tokyo. This street is located in Harajuku, next to Shibuya (one of the several city centres in Tokyo). Actually, it is in front of one of the most famous imperial parks, Meiji Jingu.
This street is famous for being the place where you can find the craziest clothes in Japan. It is something like Camden Town in London but in the Japanese way. All the crazy people going to Harajuku's bridge buy their clothes there. This people will be the topic for a future entry in this blog... Well, let's stick to this street. Maybe a nice picture of the main entrance can help you understand what we are talking about.
This street is always really crowded with tourists and all sorts of geeks. There you can look for a lolita's dress, pokemon's customes, gothic and 70's punk outfits... It is quite interesting sometimes and it is worth it going there to have a look if you are around in Tokyo.
To wrap this up, a photograph of a typical lolita (ロリータ) custome (I cannot call this a dress...)
