Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
On the other day, I went to Harajuku, which is famous as a high-fashion town.
There are sooooo many people around the Jingumae big crossing.
I know It's as always on weekends, but I noticed that it's a special day....
The very last day of the Laforet Harajuku Grand Bazar!
Laforet Harajuku has been a leading fashion center in harajuku area for more than 25 years.
When I was a teenager, I was so excited to visit there for the first time!
Twice a year in the end of summer and winter, they have a big sale called ''Laforet Grand Bazar''.
During this sale, there's a big discount and many young people from all over Japan gather to get clothes.
Especially on the last 2 days (Saturday and Sunday), they give bigger discount. (70% off, all in flat price etc)
There are even some people carrying suitcases! (maybe packed with many clothes)
For me, there were too many people to enter the building, but I was so curious about the huge balloon artwark at the entrance.
I approached there and found...
It's decorated on the real tree!
And on the backside...
The tree inside can be seen lol
If you're interested in this sale, please plan your trip to Tokyo in the end of January or July!
You may also be able to find another unique artwork in the next grand bazar!
This is all for today, see you around^^
