Harajuku is a very famous area in Tokyo which is a must visit when you are there. This place is famous for people (especially teenagers) dressing up in various types of modern and fanciful fashion, lots of shopping and eating. Harajuku is also famous for its famous Meiji Shrine and the nearby Yoyogi Park.
Let me share with you my experience and photographs of Harajuku, which hopefully will be useful to you.
In comparison to the photograph above showing teenagers with ultra modern fashion, this photograph shows the traditional side of Japan in the form of a traditional wedding ceremony at the Meiji Shrine at Harajuku. Harajuku is really a place of great contrasts :)
- Pros:Ultra modern fashion, shopping, traditional shrine all at one place
- Cons:Very crowded especially during weekends
- In a nutshell:This place really shows you the contrasts in Japan (traditional vs modern)
Yoyogi Park is one of the most famous parks in Tokyo and is conveniently located next to the Meiji Shrine and Harajuku... more travel advice
Actually Shinjuku and Ginza are not "off the beaten path" places, but rather famous shopping areas which you must visit... more travel advice
