Harajuku- Mod & Lively Young Japan

Harajuku brings a colorful change to the black suits of Tokyo business districts which claim most areas of the city. On Takeshita-dori, shops sell all kinds of mod clothes and trendy accessories to mostly young Tokyoites. Walking the back allies close by, I found the altered building of Design Festa- a feast for the eyes with all kinds of graffiti and 3-d wall scultptures. Next weekend, we're going to their two-day art exhibit with over 6000 artists at the Tokyo Big Sight Convention Center. I can't wait to find out what we'll see. Sunday, we go to Shogun country- Nikko and next week I'm off to Kyoto for a week.
