NileGuide Expert tip:
Show up on a Sunday to ensure the spectacle is on
Gothic lolitas and cosplay kids come out to strut their stuff every weekend on Harajuku's Cosplay Bridge, right between Harajuku and Yoyogi Park
. Harajuku is the epicenter of Tokyo's vibrant youth culture, and plenty of fashion houses and entertainment venues tickle the fancy of trend-hungry hipsters. Nekko Dori (Cat Street) is filled with high fashion boutiques and vintage stores, with prices to match. Or, head down Omotesando
Dori for some more grown up shopping. Pictures with your favorite kids in costume are generally graciously accepted, but do be sure to ask first.
