What is the Harajuku fashion walk The “Harajuku Fashion Walk” originated in Tokyo Japan. Every month, people gather outside Harajuku Station to go and walk the streets of Harajuku showcasing some of the most popular Japanese fashion such as Lolita, Visual Kei, Gyaru, Decora, fairy kei, And more.
Harajuku became famous in the 1980s due to the street performers and wildly-dressed teens who gathered there on Sundays when Omotesando was closed to traffic. Omotesando is a very long street with cafes and upscale fashion boutiques popular with residents and tourists alike. Once it became pedestrianized on Sundays it was the perfect place to meet, play music and wear your most favourite outfit with friends.
