Intl Saturdays 37: Harajuku GIrl 2

Finding a girl wearing normal clothes on Takeshita Dori off the Harajuku metro station is quite a task, where everyone is in their cosplay best with insanely garish getups and makeups. Some of these girls can carry it off really well, but some of them can actually make your eyes bleed. 
When i came across this girl, even before i could raise my camera to my eye, she gave me this brilliant smile. I didn’t even have to ask her if i could take her photograph. And it was a welcome change to see a normally dressed girl in that cosplay heaven.

Intl Saturdays 11: Shoegasm

Takeshita Dori opposite the Harajuku metro station has numerous such shops. This particular shop had laid out all their ladies’ shoes in this very unconventional manner which immediately grabbed my attention from afar. Thanks to the cooler climate of Tokyo, these shoes have optimum insulation for the ankles. While the tag says 50 per cent off, they were still quite expensive by Indian standards.

Intl Saturdays 5: The Harajuku GIrl 1

Tokyo has this street called the Takeshita Dori bang opposite the Harajuku metro station. Takeshita Dori is a 400-500m long pedestrian-only street. It is littered with eat-out joints, fashion botiques, a variety of independent shops selling various accessories, video-game parlors and so on. But the real reason to go there is to witness Japanese youngsters dressed in their favourite anime characters. The amount of detailing some of them go to is insane, and i will showcase some of those in the coming Saturdays.

This was the first girl I came across as i was entering the Takeshita Dori, who was hanging out with a group of her friends, also dressed in costumes, and just having a good time. When i pointed my camera in her face, she quickly gulped down the drink she had and flashed the traditional peace sign (which apparently a lot of Japanese people whom i photographed do) as she posed. I really loved her scarf with those skull and bones symbol:)

Take Care,
Ciao
