A walk on Washington's birthday, other instersting sights.

The dramatic entryway to this restaurant in Harajuku caught my attention. The dark wall with the lit red cutouts seemed to draw me in. The reflection of the shapes in the ceiling was also visually interesting.

Oh well, I'm not sure if the food or drinks are any good. But if you want to visit, the place is called "StaiR".

It seems that you don't have to be a top tier brand like Prada, Cartier, Fendi, etc. to have an interesting and visually striking shop in Harajuku.  Even blue collar workers can find something appealing at Carhartt. In the US this brand is associated with construction workers and public works employees.  However, after reading the article associated with the last link it seems they are more upscale in Europe and Asia.

The property values in this area must be sky high, but this house is only a couple years away from looking like this one in Hiroo.

If you come for a visit please keep Harajuku green!
