Okay fine, I admit. Harajuku girls got style

It was a weekday. I decided to take a stroll down the Harajuku street.

To see with my own eyes what are all these fuss about Harajuku girls in Tokyo. What do they have that I don’t?

I took almost every opportunity to snap photos while taking this ‘stroll’ in Harajuku. I couldn’t say I have seen a lot of goth-looking girls or cosplay outfits, as I have said, it was a weekday.

But seriously, Tokyo teens sure know how to dress up. Even better than girls in Kuala Lumpur, better than those superficial girls in Singapore, better those spoilt rich kids in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Compare to Tokyo, people in Malaysia dress in a way as if they just come out from the stone-age. Shame on us….

Let me present to you….

*drum rolls*

The girls on Harajuku street!

IMG_2640


Do keep in mind this is just a typical weekday. What you see here if what they wear casually every single day in Tokyo.

IMG_2645
Don’t you know blue hair and blue shirt combination is out this season?


IMG_2642
Hmm, this girl got style..


IMG_2647
I like her fashion sense, such a fashionista


These are photos I took randomly along the street,

IMG_2654


And these girls are the people I pass by, in a 30 minutes walk around Harajuku.

IMG_2648


Even the most normal looking looks really decent with style.

IMG_2641


IMG_2662


There are also Harajuku boys,

IMG_2652
Woo, I like the way you walk with you shirt hanging by your wrist, are you trying to create the 'wind' effect


IMG_2655


IMG_2660
Back to girl again. “out shopping missy?”


And there are funky couples too,

From the normal


IMG_2661


To the cool,

IMG_2663
I really like her white skirt, from side view it look almost gorgeous


To special ones,

IMG_2664
Casual to the left and formal to the right pls…


This dude stands out

IMG_2672


This is my favourite girl of all

IMG_2671

she looks a bit sian


This one spend too much time in the dog pound

IMG_2666
If you notice carefully, her hair bun is the biggest in thing in Japan right now


IMG_2668


This photo was taken because the guy walking my way looks like some celebrity strutting across the street.

Which is the total opposite of this photo,

IMG_2674
Please ignore the black poodle on the right


IMG_2676
I love her red hair, which match her red top, and red stockings


Even the larger size ladies in Japan are never reluctant to dress up, which is something I admire a lot.

IMG_2669


IMG_2670


IMG_2680
“Oh no, don’t take photo of me, I’m shy~”


Oh look! There’s a man in this very cute scooter!

IMG_2678
Wash eye, wash eye


And this is Harajuku town,

IMG_2679
Washing washing…


Suddenly saw a cute girl in the distance.

IMG_2684


Okay back to Harajuku girls.

Some girls here dress, well, uniquely.

IMG_2673
Did she just come out from CandyLand?


IMG_2677
What’s with the hat and the umbrella? Oh see the high bun I mentioned earlier on the right.


IMG_2675
These two caught my attention. You think?


And from here onwards, I kinda walked into a street of the tall and beautiful.

All the girls in this street are either slim, tall or pretty, or all.

IMG_2685
Slim and pretty


IMG_2688
Slim and stylish


Oh lookie there, kimono girls crossing the street.

IMG_2689


IMG_2692
A bit weird but still pretty, tall and slim


IMG_2691
Cute and white


IMG_2687
The kimono girls again


IMG_2686
Ohhh, I love her hair, oo.. I love her dress too, and her shoes, she looks like doll


Walking babies here are so stylish too, 3 by 3.

IMG_2690
Baby on the right is so cute.


IMG_2696
A bit fierce but I like her outfit.


IMG_2697
Again with the pretty, slim and tall.


IMG_2695
Oh no, she’s looking at me. Don’t care, still take, I like your hat.


IMG_2699
Pretty pretty


The aunties here also very trendy one wo, see the way they dress.

IMG_2698


IMG_2694
I think she is an aunty? No? She’s not??


Introducing Harajuku Groupies,

IMG_2700
Do-Re-Mi-Fa


Back to pretty girls,

IMG_2701
Pretty and sexy


IMG_2705
Where do they do their hair?! It’s like they came out from a magazine!


IMG_2706
Nothing special, I just like the school girl uniform


Even though they are teens, it never fail them to be fashion victim.

IMG_2713


IMG_2716
Silver shoes and black stocking, I don’t know man.


IMG_2714
Sorry, I just love their school uniforms.


We all know that human is the only species whereby the male group is generally less attractive than the female’s. But you gotta admit, in Japan, guys excel in fashion.

IMG_2703


Well, compare to other males in other countries.

IMG_2708


I think.


Harajuku is a good place to do your occasional shopping too.

IMG_2712


Very occasional.

IMG_2709
Omg, I love this dress!! Don’t you? I don’t know where I am going to wear it but I just love it!


IMG_2710
So goth, so cool!


IMG_2711
The white one on the right is my favourite.


In Harajuku, even the male mannequins look so funky.

IMG_2667





End.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I agree that Nicole is prettier than the Japanese girls... Prettier than most girls also, that's why she did Miss Malaysia =D

    Maybe there're other more happening places to check out the fashion scene in Japan?

    ReplyDelete
  16. the girls are quite pretty but i dunno, i never really catch their fashion sense haha looks kinda tacky. and how do you manage to take close up pics of them without them flinchin??

    ReplyDelete
  17. where are the Goth japs? or any Malice Mizer fans? you did'nt meet any?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think some of them should be arrested by the fashion police. I'm calling Interpol's fashion investigation department right now!

    ReplyDelete
  19. totally agree with nicole.Over here, I notice girls in KL either overdo the sexyness (we're not complaining,but not fashionable lah) or just plain practical clothing.

    ReplyDelete
  20. the clothes are cool bt the girls jz look plain lame....Sometimes if ugly girls overdress they will look more ugly...

    ReplyDelete
  27. my goodness... loads of pictures.. how long do u need to wait to upload these pictures?? and how did u take those pictures without them realising it?? do u ask for their permission first?? i mean, as a blogger, do u do dat? or u just snap anywhere and anyhow u like... nicole?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm surprised nobody has commented on your ...... yet.

    "Superficial girls", "Spoilt rich kids"...These people are found everywhere, not just in Singapore, Taiwan, HK. Plus people in Malaysia dress like they're from the stone-age? Can't believed no-one has disagreed with you on this.

    Half of the photos you posted have people who dress up the same way as any normal person who could be walking around town of Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong..basically anywhere.

    The other half of the photos will include people dressed up basically as the way whisperer mentioned - like Halloween. I don't see how it's a shame for Malaysians to not dress up like they 'just came out from CandyLand'.

    With that said, Tokyo teens dress up better than those in KL, Sg, HK, Tw?
    ...
    Wow, you call yourself a traveller.

  29. "Plus people in Malaysia dress like they're from the stone-age? Can't believed no-one has disagreed with you on this."

    No one disagreed because it's just a metaphor lor...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh.. I love this post. Cool photos about their wearing... Love their style.. (I mean some)

    I am wondering.. do you just stood in the middle of the road and snap these photos? lol... Anyway.. good job!
    :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. cool pics. i wouldn't dare to snap pics like that. not even brave enough to ask permission. hehe.

    they might look 'biasa' but if you're actually there and see these people with your own eyes, you would feel a little different and wow-ed a bit. it's just different.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Nicole darling you are so lala LOL **

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, never seen so many japanese dolls in my life!

    ReplyDelete
  34. althought u have that all nice pics, i vote u as the hotest babe among all....gogogo, nicole

    ReplyDelete
  35. who are u to say that S'pore girls are superficial, hong kong & taiwan kids are spoilt rich? are kl/m'sia girls or kids so good that u didnt even comment about? if u feel ur qualities are so atas, then don't travel to other countries. Pui !

    ReplyDelete
  36. Dear Anon from above,

    So you consider that my statement of Malaysians "stone-age" dressing is good?

    ReplyDelete
