LATEST TREND & TRADITIONAL CULTURE

Harajuku is a birthplace for many of Japanese fashion trends well known as “kawaii culture” in Tokyo. Especially, the Takeshita-dori Street is gathered by young people from all over Japan and the world to look for latest “kawaii” trends. Leave from the spot of latest cultural trends, then head to a historical place, the Izumo-Taisha Great Shrine where it is believed that all of the myriad deities throughout the country gather to this consecrated place in Shimane Prefecture. Great trip to have enough traditional cultural experiences and to see what's like latest Japanese trends.
