Takeshita St. No place does ado­les­cence like Tokyo. If it’s Sun­day, around 1-4pm, out­side the main gates of the Meiji Shrine will be a horde of Gothic Loli­tas whose make-up would have Mary Quant swiv­el­ling in her mini. With your back to the shrine en­trance, zip right and around the cnr to en­ter Yoyogi Park where you’ll see Elvis and friends, pre­sum­ably on meds. Nip back to the shrine en­trance and go left, cross­ing and fol­low­ing the slow mov­ing con­veyor belt of black hair left to find Takeshita St. At the end, cross straight over for Hara­juku St.’s fun bou­tiques. Turn right at the last junc­tion, with Lons­dale on your right, and carry on to swish Omote­sando Dori. Cross the foot bridge, u-turn 180˚ and 3/4s of the way down is Mon­toak / 6-1-9 Jingu­mae / 5468 5928 / mon­toak.com / handy for a pit-stop marti gar­gle.
