Harajuku Urban Intrigue

Filed by: The Author of tIoGT
Harajuku is one of the few places in the world that is constantly changing at a break neck speed. It seems as though a day doesn’t go by without an amazing new shop opening where an old one failed. Somehow though it still somehow manages to maintain a laidback, small town feel.

No matter how much time people spend wandering about its twisting alleys, most tend to come away feeling they’ve missed seeing something important.

Its hip little shops, cafes, and salons, give it an edge over other places like Ginza and Omotesando which are slowly being developed into stale, boring open air strip malls.

Whilst there recently I stumbled onto these things.

They were standing guard outside a hip little shop having been constructed out of an unfamiliar species of moss held in shape by nearly a very fine thread.

The thread was almost invisible to the naked eye and impossible to detect unless you got very, very close.

They were living and breathing and attracting a lot of attention on another fine day in Tokyo.
