I finally am getting a chance to get my photos together of the street style I spotted in Tokyo. Like I had mentioned, the fashion and styles in Japan are quite different from us in the western hemisphere- cute, daring, eclectic. The looks are distinct but with a broad range, from Harajuku doll to traditional geisha to goth girl. Some styles are quite obvious and some just show hints of inspiration from within their culture. Seeing all of the trends that fill the streets on the other side of the world is so inspiring, and also a reminder to me of how small we are. This is just another one of the many reasons I love traveling. For the times when we get caught in the hectic schedule that life becomes, stressed about daily worries, for when we start to forget the bigger picture. When I travel, I am reminded that my activities back home in my world, as important as they are to me, are not the center of the universe. Traveling always gives me a refreshing and welcome change in perspective that we all need every now and then.
Do you travel? If so, what is your favorite part about it? If not, how else can I convince you to?
