HARAJUKU STREET STYLE: PUTUMAYO, VISUAL KEI MUSIC STORES, KAWAII KIDDYLAND.
If you haven’t made it to Tokyo yet, fear not – Harajuku remains ruled by Gothic Lolita Rococo Punk. I took some more photos of the two Putumayo boutiques; you can see photos from last fall here. Dog, the secondhand cyber/couture store, is also a must-visit.
The same goes for 6% Doki Doki (see interior photos here), any store with a bunny-head mannequin, and the incredible Kiddyland (a 5-story shop stuffed with Sanrio/San-X/Ghibli character goods).
Next, I headed to Shinjuku’s Edison music store, known for its Visual Kei and J-rock selection. My friends joined the long lineup for Versailles concert tickets. Good thing that there were band outfits, signed posters, and cardboard cut-outs to pass the time!
