And welcome to Harajuku the ‘Kawaii Capital of Japan’ Kawaii – means cute be the way and it’s pretty much what every Japanese girl* aspires to be. So it’s the top complement 😉
*As it appears the guys and old men also love to join in too! And Sunday is when the weirdos/pretty interesting cosplay people come out to quite condifidently parade around the streets. And fair play to them, well done on being who you want to be.. Even if we’re not quite sure what that really is..
Here’s the entrance to the main street; Takeshita (apparently it means pretty much what it sounds like to!) and nicely modeled by this dancing Alien GIF(wait for it to load)
Right bellow is some of the most weird n wonderful people that Harajuku had to offer that day! Il warn you now 3 of them are guys judging by the big hand and need for a mask some are pretty obvious then some scared me when I heard a manly grunt!
And of course I had to have a selfie with one of girls, KAWAII!!
The next wonderful thing about this Street is that my senses were not only flooded visually but from top to bottom my nose couldn’t stop smelling the sweet taste of pancakes. So after holding back for 5 shops of delicious smells and window displays, number 6 just got to me, that and it was the only one with a queue that didn’t go around a corner!
Next I found this nice girl who gave me some samples for some sweets. I’ve found this to be quite common in Japan which is great, I love free stuff 🙂 But what surprised me more was to actually hear Avril Lavigne in Japan, well maybe they do like it?!
Here a few pictures of around Harajuku with a massive balloon tree! Pretty impressed by the dragonball z water and also pretty proud I didn’t fall for such marketing ploys.. This time aha
