Shopping Harajuku
5 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

Basement boutique Dog has wooed some unusual customers with its blend of outlandish vintage and reworked clothing – not least Lady Gaga, who’s been known to visit incognito on her trips to Tokyo. Indeed, those with a taste for the theatrical will appreciate its remakes, which include replicas of costumes from Gaga’s own shows (and a few Madonna numbers). If you’re looking for something a little more wearable, its range of indie designer remakes are also worth browsing. Opened by Kai Satake in 2000 (and followed by a Koenji outlet in 2009), the shop’s dark, graffiti-covered entrance is easy to walk past without a second glance – let the metal-clad mannequin that stands guard outside be your guide.

This a little shop in the backstreets of the Harajuku neighbourhood in Tokyo. It's loud and full of amazing finds. These clothing are unique so they come at a price but it is well worth the treck to find it. I spent a good hour trying on the various clothes.

The staff are friendly and helpful. They did not mind that I spent time playing dress up in there.
