Harajuku, defying the authority

Years ago in Harajuku the rockabilly scene was all the rage, dying out partly due to a governmental crackdown on noise pollution. Offenders were occasionally hauled down to the police station and forced to sign a form that says, ‘sorry.’

Last year a new licensing program was put in place (with government-run auditions). Now street performers are back, this time with a more 60’s Beatles/Stones influenced aesthetic.
In Harajuku, a street rocker in the background with a white guitar (love it!) and the sweatshirt in the foreground with a fine bit of Japlish: I will take my thing …certainly someday.
