The October weather in Japan can be described as absolutely perfect- warm, sunny and slightly crisp. In Tokyo, those kinds of days only call for one thing: a wander around Yoyogi Koen, the largest park in Tokyo. On Sundays especially, it gets very animated, with families and young people playing and lounging about. This weekend, the Hokkaido Fair was held in Yoyogi Koen, which featured different foods from that northern region of Japan: fresh grilled seafood, miso ramen, soup curry.
Those lazy afternoons are also perfect for a stroll around Harajuku, to bask in everything one can imagine when thinking of Japanese subcultures. Takeshita street caters to the gothic lolitas and faux punks, while tree-lined Omotesando carries all that is luxurious and upscale. And, tucked in all over Harajuku are countless vintage and secondhand shops full of treasures.
