Takeshita Dori, the heart of eccentric Japanese fashion

Takeshita dori: the crazy alley in Harajuku. Colorful crowd, costumed, grimaced, with colored hair, discolored; vintage, avant-garde or cosplay shops. A showcase for crazy, unconventional and trendy Japanese youth, Takeshita Street has become a must-see when visiting Tokyo.
