In the early 1970s, photographer Kohei Yoshiyuki joined the throngs of voyeurs who would do their “peeping” in Tokyo’s Yoyogi Park. The photographs were shown at the Komai Gallery in 1979. Post modern in the extreme -- dig the triple transgression of the exhibitionist couplings, the peeping toms and the photographer capturing both -- the show was a sensation in Japan.
Meiji Shrine (明治神宮, Meiji Jingū) is a shrine dedicated to the deified spirits of Emperor Meiji and his consort, Empress Shoken. Located just beside the JR Yamanote Line's busy Harajuku Station, Meiji Shrine and the adjacent Yoyogi Park make up a large forested area within the densely built-up city. The spacious shrine grounds offer walking paths that are great for a relaxing stroll.
Gothic Lolita for short, is a Japanese teen or young adult who dresses in amazingly elaborate Gothic looking babydoll costumes. On the weekends these women walk the streets of Tokyo and Osaka and fill Yoyogi Park and Harajuku neighborhood where they pose for tourist’s pictures and sit around looking pretty. They are beautiful, glamorous, doll-like manifestations of their favorite Visual Rock stars.
