6.) Harajuku – 原宿
Harajuku is where Japanese youth-oriented fashion happens. No one can deny that the teenagers and young adults roaming the streets of Harajuku have a high sense of fashion, and if asked nicely, a lot of them don’t mind being snapped in a picture or two.
In that regard, Takeshita Street is the focal point of Shibuya. Rainbow cotton candy, pink crepe shops, anime cafes and kawaii clothing stores, everything in this street breathes cuteness and quirkiness. Shoot a pic in front of them, and you will create a whole new aesthetic on your feed!
When you visit this Shibuya district, you will also be amazed by the thousands of fashion styles and subcultures naturally blending with some historic sights. If you are more inclined to snap the grown-up side of Tokyo, head to Meiji Jingu, one of Tokyo’s major shrines, located right beside the railway tracks of Harajuku Station. You can also visit the small Ota Memorial Museum of Art or the Nezu Museum.
Your photo album will illustrate the beautiful clash between yesterday’s and today’s art.
