Here’s someone that most of you will recognize instantly – it’s Yone! Yasumasa Yonehara is one of Japan’s most famous fashion photographers. This Harajuku street snap is over a month old (which is why Yone is wearing long sleeves), but we thought we’d publish it at the same time as our feature on his recently-opened Tokyo shop Moshi Moshi Kawaii Harajuku.
Yone’s had an office in Harajuku for over 15 years, and we always see him wandering around the streets (often with several models). Even though he’s famous, Yone is always super friendly and he stops to talk to everyone. So, if you ever run into Yone in Harajuku, make sure you say say “Hello!”.
