About Harajuku

Post by kyoshi on Sat Apr 26, 2008 2:59 pm



Harajuku Station.


Harajuku refers to the area around Tokyo's Harajuku Station, one station north of Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. It is the center of Japan's most extreme teenage cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for grown-ups and some historic sights.

The focal point of Harajuku's teenage culture is Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street) and its side streets, which are lined by many trendy shops, fashion boutiques, used clothes stores, crepe stands and fast food outlets geared towards the fashion and trend conscious teens.

In order to experience the teenage culture at its most extreme, visit Harajuku on a Sunday, when many young people gather around Harajuku Station and engage in cosplay ("costume play"), dressed up in crazy costumes to resemble anime characters, punk musicians, etc.



Shops, cafes and restaurants for all ages are found along Omotesando, a broad, tree lined avenue, sometimes referred to as Tokyo's Champs-Elysees. Omotesando Hills, a recently opened shopping complex along the avenue, has been attracting particularly lots of attention.

However, Harajuku is not only about teenage culture and shopping. Meiji Shrine, one of Tokyo's major shrines, is located just west of the railway tracks in a large green oasis shared with Yoyogi Park, a spacious public park. Beautiful ukiyo-e paintings are exhibited in the small Ota Memorial Museum of Art.




Famous Streets:

<<-- Takeshita Dori
The symbol of Harajuku and birthplace of many of Japan's fashion trends, Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street) is a narrow, roughly 400 meter long street lined by shops, boutiques, cafes and fast food outlets targeting Tokyo's teenagers.

Omotesando -->>
Referred to as Tokyo's Champs-Elysees, Omotesando is a one kilometer long, tree lined avenue, serving as the main approach to Meiji Shrine. Numerous stores, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, including several leading fashion brand shops, stand along the avenue.

<<-- Omotesando Hills
Opened in February 2006, Omotesando Hills with its intriguing interior design, consists of six floors (three of them underground) of upmarket shops, restaurants, cafes and beauty salons. Several apartments are located on top of the shopping complex.

A wide array of Snoopy goods is sold in this store, located directly across Harajuku Station.

<<-- Daiso Harajuku - 100 Yen Shop

<<-- Louis Vuitton
The Louis Vuitton Omotesando store was opened in autumn 2002 as the company's largest store. The public store makes up five of the building's ten floors, which are designed as a stack of trunks rather than conventional floors.

kita secara iklim en musim beda ma jepun.
environment-nya pun beda jauh...
mungkin di jakarta ada sih tempat2 yang hampir serupa ma harajuku.
tempat anak muda pada nongkrong, ga cuma anak muda, but segala usia.
lokasi-nya strategi bangetz, di tokyo, distrik shibuya, kawasan pedestrian.
siswa/i dari distrik laen di jepun sering masukin Harajuku sebagai daerah tujuan study tour.
tiap minggu ada cosplay, segala usia ikut ngeramein..
mungkin kalo di indo tempat buat cosplay-nya ga ada yang serupa ma Harajuku.
Pengen banget dah bisa liburan ke sana :x

mau gimana lagi.. kebanyakan emang orang jawa sih.. terkadang ada juga para pendatang yang mungkin merasa "ini rum bau2 jepun tapi orangnya jawa smua, yang dibahas gajebo pula" mereka datang beberapa kali ke rum.. mungkin berharap situasi yang dia jumpai saat pertama kali masuk hara, cuma kondisi yang bukan merupakan kebiasaan.. skali dua kali mereka tetep nimbung, abis itu gag pernah balik lagi.. entah karena merasa kecewa atau udah nemuin rum laen yang bner2 jepun, gag tau deh.. :scratch:
