Morning all. This shot is of Harajuku station in Shibuya, Tokyo. The station takes it's name from the area on the east side - Harajuku. A very fashionable area for the young - especially for shopping. Loads of fashion for the teenagers in this area. However on a Sunday, it is also the custom for young girls to dress up in the best - no matter how eccentric that may be. They then display themselves in their rigout on the bridge near the station. Passers by may photograph the girls - in fact they are very happy if you do. Sod's law, the day we went there was only one girl there Sad.
V2 is one of the favourite fashion shopping streets - that is correct it is called Takeshita Street Grin
V3 which outfit do you think I should have bought TongueWink
V4 having been photographed, the girl is checking out the picture.
Will catch up when I can over this weekend. Thanks for C&Cs on previous upload.

Looks a fascinating area, Moira, as for the outfit, hmmmm, maybe the gold blouse and white trousers in the centre of the pic? Carol

Four fabulous shots giving us great cultural insights. Hmmmm, it seems from the shots and what's available in the shops that they have lots of taste there, and all of it is bad!

You should definitely go for the gold lamé micro shorts, with the gold lamé corset top and shrug, very you and guaranteed to cut a dash at your local, but don't tell Mikbee about it as a) he hates pristine metal and b) his mate Big Aggie would be furious at you for copying her style!
