10.March.2018 | FASHION / FEATURES / SPOT

Hello everyone! My name is Shiota and I am the curator of MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

There are many photo spots in Harajuku gathering much attention on TV programs and SNS.

 

In this article, I will introduce to you some recommended photo spots in Ura-Harajuku with a staff member of “MOSHI MOSHI Kimono Salon,” located next to MOSHI MOSHI BOX. Even places that you visit often look different when you are wearing a kimono. Just try, and you will see!

The kimono she is wearing is yellow/green which are colors that suit this spring season. The color of the obi (band) is the same as the color of the kimono so it has a settled-look and it is suitable to walk around town in this kimono.

We took a photo in front of the cute shoji (paper door) of MOSHI MOSHI Kimono Salon!
