Takashita dori, Harajuku

Here are pictures of the places that I talk about in my book. Takashita dori, a crowded street in Harajuku, caters to the younger generation. In order to break away from everyday life, and show off their individuality, and fashion sense, young Japanese dress in funky clothes.

This is Purikura, a photo sticker booth. It’s a fun place to take pictures and add characters and stickers to your photo.
