Tokyo's Cutting-edge Fashion

 

If you have even a little bit interest in fashion, Tokyo is the place to go. Especially young Japanese who feel the need to express themselves through fashion, don't hold back, which results in the wildest of styles. A combination between traditional Japan on the one hand, and post techno pop culture on the other, results in a feast for the eye for any traveler to Tokyo.

Tokyo Fashion Week

 

Right in the tail of the various fashion weeks in cities such as Paris, Milan and New York, the whole circus travels to Tokyo and sets up camp to present the latest styles Japanese designers have on offer. For fashion lovers, the perfect time to visit Japan is doubtlessly during MBFW Tokyo! Although many showcases are on invitation only, there are also many parties for people like you and me.

Beginners' Crash Course in Tokyo's Street Fashion

For those who are beginners in the 'fashion arena', you will have to get familiar with what's out there before you get down and dirty in the racks of shops and department stores.

He met us at our hotel and talked us through the Tokyo Rail and Subway system which once you understand it is very efficient. We saw the Imperial Palace Bridges, Zozoji Temple (which is lovely), then we had time in Ginza including time in a quaint...

We had a fairly diverse group of people. Akihabara is, of course, known for its electronics shops and for catering to various "Otaku" interests. However, Yuko adeptly guided us through not only those areas, but to other places off the main strip so that we would all have a good time. She also courteously helped plan the tour around the opening times of the shops. Very knowledgeable, helpful, and p...

We spent a very interesting half day with Masato. He is an extremely knowledgeable guide telling about Japanese daily life, customs and habits.

“ Garden Tour and Tea Ceremony ”

1 day ago Traveler: Kira -   Tour Guide: Hiromi

Hiromi was a good guide; she was friendly and happily answered my many questions and helped us with a Suica card mix-up. I was a little disappointed that our tea ceremony was in a hotel rather than a real tea house, however we booked our tour only a week ahead of time and Hiromi said that March is a busy month, so I understand that perhaps it wasn't possible. And, after the official tea ceremony w...
