|Look at all that sushi! It's glorious!|
|Heaven on a skewer.|
Danny and I were caught by surprise by the fashion in Japan. Korean fashion has a "group" mentality... girls wear 80's style baggy shirts and mini skirts, and men wear polo shirts a capri-type pants. Now that is a generalization, so of course it's not everybody, but it sure feels like everybody! So since we see the same fashion all the time, we loved how individualistic the Japanese are when it comes to fashion. We saw a rocker style, a lingerie style, a European style, a trendy style, of course a Japanese traditional style, and what I thought was most interesting: a "human doll" style.
|Traditional Japanese Style|
You can probably picture most of those styles in your mind, but let me explain the human dolls because they are interesting! At first I thought that all Japanese are constantly on their way to a costume party, but these are just ways they dress on a normal day! The human doll girls were a sight to see... they had circles of blush on their cheeks, huge bows in their hair, and we even saw one adult woman carrying a stuffed animal to complete the look. It must be a commitment to dress to the nine like those women do, but they really do look like dolls walking the streets. (I'm sad that I could never get a good picture of them, but I got one of them from behind.)
|Wow that's a lot of color!|
I call these styles: "Brit Pop Chic" and "Rocker Chic"... I don't know about you but when I pictured Japan, this isn't what I imagined ; )
Here we have "French Chic" and "80's Chic"... can you imagine how long it takes to get your hair to look that perfect?
|Even the accessories are intense.|
|Bon Jovi Chic ; )|
|Danny in Americamura|
We have been out of America for so long "Americamura" was as close as we could get, but now I'm curious if the fashion will be as interesting to me once we finally go back. Either way, Japan is a GREAT place for a lot of things, but the food and the fashion, in my opinion, top them all!
