Harajuku is the heart of adolescent and youth culture.
We are attending an outdoor Rock 'n' Roll party that thousands of young people participate. Girls in printed, colorful airy skirts and “fourreau” skirts, boys in jeans and leather jackets improvise with a simple pace or they synchronize in small groups with the same steps while the elders are looking at them in wonder. The music floods the dance from the dozens of cassette players that they carry with them. Intense dance figures, that some young people make to stand out, are also distinctive.
Rock'n 'roll made its appearance in the 1950s, and it refers to a state of an overwhelming joy and excitement, and the lyrics were about the joy of life and love, the dance was subversive and bold, provoking the morals of the-then-society. So Rock 'n' Roll was born of a youth who wanted to resist and differentiate herself from the conservatism of the time.
