Shibuya has become a major attraction among young teenagers in Japan and abroad. Many flock to the popular fashion district to check out the latest styles that everyone wears on the streets of Tokyo.
One can say that Shibuya is the Japanese version of Milan. Even though it does not rank among the top cities known for high fashion such as Paris, Milan, London and New York, Japanese fashion is in a class of its own. Fashion plays a major role in young people’s lives, especially teenagers because they want to stand out from everyone around them.
Too many times, teenagers feel that they have to conform to society’s standards to become a part of society. As a result, it causes them to rebel. Therefore, fashion helps them to seek their own identity and meet new people that share the same interests. Being youthful provides them with the opportunity to express themselves freely and develop a greater perspective on who they really are as human beings.
Shibuya will remain a popular fashion district in the world among young people for many years to come.
