You can rent DOGS??

Okay, I need some proof of that. I'm a dog fanatic and whenever I'm overseas I miss my dogs like heck. =)

Takashita dori & Harajuku 2008/1/18 14:14
Be sure to go into harajuku on a sunday if you can make it. If you exit the station on the side WITHOUT the bushes, you'll see takashita dori, one of the most famous streets in the world to any fan of FRUiTS, TUNE or KERA magazine. No matter your interest, take a stoll- it never disappoints. But don't talk to the jamacan blokes who ask you to see their stores, they are boring as hell and you feel pressured to buy. tHE EASIEST THING TO DO IS NOT TALK TO THEM AT ALL! They aren't dangerous, but just don't do it. I felt very uncomfortable. What ever your age or interest, be sure to stroll takashita dori at least once- you won't forget it in a hurry. You will know which road it is as it is pedestrian traffic only and there are gates at the entrance which look like flowers.

Secondly, as you exit the station (same side), turn to your right and walk up the hill parallel with the train lines. You will come to qa bridge on your right with a large pedestrial accessway, this passes over the lines. If you are here between 10-5 (best time is about 3) you'll see the famed Harajuku cosplayers- YOU WILL NOT SEE THIS IN EUROPE! Make sure you take your camera. If you want to do something more traditional, walk through the giant wooden Torii gates after the bridge (slightly to your right) and have a stroll through a forest in the middle of the city. You will arrive at a very impressive Shinto shrine, about ten minutes stroll, and throughly worth it.

Final tip: when on Takashita dori, have a crepe- they are awesome!

Hope this helps.

R., you can find a lot of cosplayers in Europe. :) Ok, they are not Harajuku cosplayers, but some of them also have an... interesting fashion style. Just come to the Japan Day in Duesseldorf, Germany to see a big cosplayer meeting. ^^
