In the late 19th century, the area around Harajuku Station was mostly rural, but as Tokyo began to rapidly urbanize in the early 20th century, the area developed into a residential neighborhood. After World War II, Harajuku became a popular destination for young people. And indeed, the american soldiers were based on the neighboorhood at the Yoyogi Kôen. Since then, the young american soldiers start displaying fashion from America. Little by little, curiosity gains the young people from Tokyo and japanese shops selling american/foreign brands appeared, gathering more and more interest everyday. After American soldiers left Tokyo, Harajuku kept its reputation as a fashion hub for youngster.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Harajuku became a center of Japan’s burgeoning youth culture and fashion scene, with many young people flocking to the area to participate in the latest fashion trends and subcultures, such as punk, goth, and Lolita. In recent years, Harajuku has continued to be a popular destination for young people, and it is also a popular spot for tourists interested in Japanese fashion and culture.
