Takeshita-dori is the cutting edge of Tokyo fashion - the Asian center for the trendy. If you are a tourist, you may not find this in the guidebooks, but what a great place to people watch - fashion magazine shooters mingle and snap away at the eclectic mix of colors and fabrics.

Most of the people there are just hanging out, but they have made sure they are hanging out dressed just perfectly.

Implications - Tokyo is now added to the list of major international cities with a significant influence on fashion. The Takeshita-dori is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike hoping to stay ahead of broader fashion trends. Some of the street's stores are even known as 'antenna shops,' which manufacturers use for test marketing.
