Tokyo Tuesday: Harajuku, Sumo and clubbing [Feb. 21st, 2014|06:01 pm]
Tuesday 11 february

Back to Harajuku (loved it there so much), like being in pink Goth world meet Alice in wonderland, each time you enter a shop you discover another 5 floors of more, real labyrinths. Floor after floor of Lolita heaven but all damn too small

what happen when you do photobooth there instant manga eyes :)

 After shopping we rushed back to the hotel to go to a Sumo Hall to see some Sumo wrestling.  This wasn’t quite as successful as it was a special events and as a result more sumo being interviewed and dueting  cheesy songs on a big white and pink stage! Great for fans dull for us unable to understand, finally after a few hours we got to see some action. Not really my thing as all very slow to start with all the ceremonies and over in a second. I guess I am just not a sport watcher of any kind. http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2080.html

We escaped before the end to rush back to hotel, super fast change and find our way to Heavy Pop club, we knew we were on right track when we were given direction by a goth Lolita rabbit (which I had taken a photos as she looked amazing)
Heavy Pop was a wonderful weird mix of music and fashion, where Goths wear a lot of pink and colours,  looks like cute animals and Lolita’s. It’s like being in a manga version of a Western nightclub. Everyone on dance floor faces the dj and a few do choreographies. At one stage everyone stopped dancing to gather everyone together to take a team photograph of all the club-goers.  One other weird fact about Tokyo you cannot smoke in the street but you can in clubs.

Tokyo definitely is a different world then we're used to here.
