I’ve been very absent from Thursday Doors in recent weeks/months, due to various other things going on, but I’m determined to get back into it. And since Norm (who usually hosts TD) is on a break, I thought it’d be nice to support the guest hosts.
Harajuku is a district in Tokyo that’s renowned for it’s quirkiness and bizarre-ness. It’s the “kawaii” district. I was trying to think of an English word that would adequately encompass all that Harajuku is, but “out there” is probably the closest (and that’s two words, not one).
You can basically just search “Harajuku” in Google Images, and the bombardment of colour in the results is kind of a good representation of the vibe of place.
Of course, when my friend and I visited, it was kind of early morning, and on a national public holiday, no less, so it seemed kind of toned down…
But in a place like Harajuku, I knew I was bound to find some impressive and interesting doors. They did not disappoint.
Thursday Doors is usually run by Norm, but is guest-hosted by Joey this week. You should visit her blog to find links to more doors (and read some of the stuff she posts the rest of the week too!)
