Harajuku 原宿

I am working on a school assignment to create a sugoroku すごろく (Japanese old-school board game) with Tokyo 名所 ("meisho" meaning "name-places" or more colloquially, famous places). In the name of school-assignment, I am therefore being the obvious tourist and taking pictures everywhere!

This is Takeshita Street, which is pretty popular with young folk (若者), and has a lot of cheap clothes. I really like the sign on this street! As you can see, it is pretty crowded!

LEFT and BELOW: waiting for the train at the Harajuku Station (原宿駅). The neat thing about Harajuku is that there are tons of fashion billboards!
