Sorry so many questions.
Had anyone gone to Shibuya 109 [I am sure people have] ... It seems to be the best place to get fashionable clothing. My only question is how much should one expect to spend in these stores?
I am mainly looking to buy tops/accessories since I LOVE Japanese fashion and hope to buy quite a few things there. I looked up some shops and the average price of shirts seems to be [$30 - $60] .. shoes [$60] & didn't get the prices on accessories [like bags].
I don't know the answer but I want to! I will be in Shibuya next year, can't wait to shop it up!
Ardy: Yeah doesn't it look so nice in there, there's like over 100 stores, Lol. Or at least it seems like it. That's deffinetly a day [or more] stop. I'll deff. be going there more than once ... esp now since I got another job .. so I'l have twice what I thought I was going to have to spend.
Starlight: I am going there to work, in Fukushima, but I am stopping in Tokyo for a couple of days. Totally looking forward to Harujuku as well! Great if they had something like Nordstrum rack but for all the asian brands.
Ardy: Ahhh are you going to teach english? I'm going for the TESL certificate in September ^^ ... I want to teach in Korea though.
Fukushima is pretty far away from Tokyo, but how long are you staying to work in Japan for?? Harajuku seems awesome, I want to take pics w/ some of the people there, Lol.
Yeah its like an hour and half by train. No not English, I am going to work at a Hotel, in reception. On a six month contract. Harajuku for sure, those girls have got some skills when it comes to eclectic style.
I took pics with harajuku girls but unfortunately they were on a polaroid and I don't have a scanner to put them up online. However, one of my host sisters frequently went to Shibuya for shopping and I remember her telling me that there are some cheap and some expensive stores but that they're all really good. I'm kinda jealous now....I didn't really have the freedom to do what I wanted to in Japan
Ardy: Ohh a hotel how nice ^^ Are you going to be a receptionist? Business part? Maid?
Yes the Harajuku girls have some crazy style. Haha. Don't think I could pull it off, but I give them props.
NantesFC: Awee :[ Did you go on a class trip or something? I can see that being restricted "stay in your groups people!!" :P
Starlight: Receptionist. Looking forward to it big time, I will be arriving after a two month trek in India... so the orderly life style of a scheduled job in Japan will be very much welcomed.

NantesFC some cheap stores eh, awsome... I like a good rumage for a deal! I just purchased a new camera and good wide angle lens for my next couple of trips, but now I am thinking I should get a portrait lens for those spunky Harajuku girls!
