Fashion in Harajuku is … uhm … let’s just say … not the usual.
And guess what! That is the usual scene in Harajuku every weekend.
The fashion craze and different trends are unbelievable. The craziest I’ve seen was a guy wearing a pair of sunglasses covered with jewels. I couldn’t imagine how he can see through that shades. When I was there, the trend was people wearing a towel around their neck.
Try to Google Harajuku girls or lolita girls (google image) for more.

Following the tori gates lead to Meiji Jingu Shrine.
The pathways are filled with greenery.
Along the way are these decorated sake barrels.
When you visit Meiji Shrine …

From fashion craze to old fashion, modern to traditional, nature to concrete, Harajuku and the Meiji Shrine area are surprisingly right next to each other. Both exhibits the many juxtapositions you can find in Japan.
