Harajuku

Was listening to Gwen Stefani's The Sweet Escape album and there's a song titled Wind It Up (Harajuku Lovers Live Version). At the same time, received a newsletter from Maxis and at the corner of the newsletter, there is a Harajuku Doll Contest.

It made me so curious on what Harajuku is all about. Did a google search and found this at Wikipedia. Harajuku is actually the area around Harajuku Station on the Yamanote Line in the Shibuya ward of Tokyo, Japan. Never been to Japan, so don't know where exactly the place is. Harajuku Tokyo is a major fashion and shopping region and its famous for Harajuku Girls.
To what I understand from the small "research" I did, Harajuku is famous for the "cosplaying" (meaning "costume" or "roleplaying"). Well, it's not a common thing to do "cosplaying" in Malaysia here and people will look at you one kind even if you're just dressing up a little bit more "special". Taiwan is getting more famous on this "cosplaying" thingy right now. Got to know about this from the Guess Guess Guess show.
By the way, anyone interested in going to Gwen Stefani's concert? Feel like going but LKC is not interested in this kind of music. Kinda addicted to her songs lately...

If I could be sweet
I know I've been a real bad girl

I didn't mean for you to get hurt
Forever, we can make it better
Tell me boy, now wouldn't that be sweet?
Sweet escape
