Fleeting impressions of Tokyo

Just some impressions from my stopover in Tokyo.  Fashionistas swarmed.  No-one writes about this phenomenon better than my friend Ted Polhemus who is a world expert on youth subculture.  His books include Fashion and Anti Fashion, Popstyles, Social Aspects of the Human Body, Bodystyles, Rituals of Love and Boom so dive in there if you want to know more.  http://www.amazon.com/Streetstyle-Ted-Polhemus/dp/0956278817

The girls wearing kimonos were tourists from Hong Kong by the way!
