COSPLAYERS & SWEET LOLITAS ON HARAJUKU'S JINGU BRIDGE. PHOTOS OF JAPANESE YOUTHS, LOLITAS STREET STYLE.
Jingu is a pedestrian bridge that connects Harajuku to Yoyogi Park / Meiji Shrine. On Sundays especially, you’ll see cosplayers, Gothic Lolitas and other alt-styled youths congregating here.
The bridge isn’t as busy as it was in the old days of Harajuku “pedestrian heaven,” but it remains a marvelous spot to see and be seen.
What better place to be inspired before shopping for Gothic Lolita Punk clothes in Harajuku? (Maps and a store guide for your reference.)
Many of the teens bring food and hang out here all day. Most ignore the swarm of tourists that snap photos of the action.
Have you stepped foot on Harajuku’s infamous bridge?
