For the first time in its history, the Harajuku Fashion Walk left Harajuku. With over 20 people, we explored Tokyo’s Asakusa and Ueno districts. After visiting the historical Buddhist temple of Sensoji, we walked through the backstreets where we discovered a Harajuku style pig, a Japanse ghost on stilts, and some excellent chocolate covered bananas.
Later, a smaller group checked out Ueno Park, and Ameyokocho, Tokyo’s last black market.
The next Harajuku Fashion Walk will take place on Sunday, January 31. Once again in Harajuku. As always, we will leave at 2 PM from the Takeshita-dori exit of JR Harajuku Station. The next Special Edition Harajuku Fashion Walk will be on March 6, when we go and sweep the streets of Tokyo’s Akihabara. We will depart at 2 PM from JR Akihabara Station’s Electric Town Exit.
