Seeing Self-Expression in Tokyo

by in japan, photography, tokyo, travel

I love Tokyo for it’s people-watching, societal rules, busyness, conformity and attempts at self-expression. One of the best places to observe this self-expression in teenagers is in Harajuku, a common area outside Harajuku station, at the opening of Yoyogi Park and adjacent to Takeshita-dori, a Japanese teenager’s shopping haven.

Each Sunday is a sight to see as Tokyo teens gather to socialize and show off their cosplay and anime-inspired fashions. Proudly posing for the tourist paparazzi, this is one of the few places in Tokyo where the Japanese enjoy being photographed by gawking tourists.
