Anti-fur protesters at the entrance to Takeshita Doori/Street

This week your favourite cheapos take a stroll down Takeshita Dori Harajuku. Squeezing through the school girls, socks, crepes and rabbit bags, Chris, Greg and his daughter give you a running commentary on what the cheapo can find amongst the stalls and shops of the legendary Takeshita Dori.

Takeshita Dori is a narrow pedestrian only shopping street (or shotengai 商店街) just across from Harajuku station and is a popular area amongst the younger crowd, well more specifically the teenage girls :). It’s been known as an epicenter of fads, fashion and Crepes since as far back as the 70’s.
