My personal favorite cultural melting pot PARK Harajuku today took to their SNS accounts to share that they'll be changing locations from the current Takeshita Street shared-store with 2.5 SPINNS into their previous "Cat Street" building. In a post made on the internet-inspired fashion store's official website, they shared that the move will be bringing PARK back to their roots both figuratively and literally. They also shared that the move will be completed on April 28, where the store will be hosting a renewal opening.
I'm sure for many, your initial introduction to the colorful stylings of PARK Harajuku would have been the anime series URAHARA, an anime co-produced by both Crunchyroll and Bilibili which used the store as it's setting. For me, I happened to stumble upon the store during the last time they changed locations back in ~2015, where lines wrapped around the corner, and I simply had to find out what all the hype was about. Having spent a considerable amount of time talking to all of the store's staff since then, I've held almost a longing to visit their previous location, so this is a little exciting.
There are few locations in Tokyo that I would recommend as highly as PARK Harajuku, so I urge everyone to both visit the current location, as well as check out the new store when it opens on April 28. Acting as a springboard for aspiring creators to get their products available in a real-world location, rather than exclusively on the internet, I can't help but support them every step of the way. If you're interested in checking out further information about the move, the original posting can be found here.
