Entry Description

I took this picture at “Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku” located 4 minutes away on foot from Harajuku Station of JR Yamanote Line in Tokyo, Japan. This place is at the center of Omotesando/Harajuku area where Japanese fashion culture has been kept created and dispatched. Despite the famous Meiji Jungu Shrine and luxury international brand stores lined in the area, you find regular people living ordinary lives once easily you step into alleys. This town contains a gorgeous and dramatic side and very common and ordinary side, and I believe this fact makes Omotesando really attractive. I take many landscape pictures by seeking the wonder of the nature. On the other hand, I am also interested in new pop culture, modern architecture, and industrial design. Omotesando satisfies my different interests with full of new stimulations.
