Jingu Bridge. Shibuya, Japan
Note

One of the images that's come to be associated with Japan by Westerners is the “Harajuku Girl.” Gwen Stefani made this term famous in 2004 with her Love. Angel. Music. Baby. album, but Harajuku has been the centre of street fashion in Tokyo for much longer than that. And the place most associated with the phenomenon is Jingu Bashi, the pedestrian bridge between JR Harajuku Station and Meiji Shrine.

Jingu is a pedestrian bridge that connects Harajuku to Yoyogi Park / Meiji Shrine. On Sundays especially, you’ll see cosplayers, Gothic Lolitas and other alt-styled youths congregating here.
