Welcome back, gorgeous! We’ve missed you.
And, thanks, for correcting Beyonce’s lyrics in Partition. The gentleman clearly “Bill Clinton’d all over my gown” in the back of the limo.
Alas, dear readers, this is my final Seijin no Hi photo. Perhaps the culmination of all the other photos. For reasons not made clear to this foreigner, the joyous 20 year olds are posing with one of them in the air with his legs spread wide. A particularly fetching boy seems to be reaching his hand towards legs-spread-wide’s groin.
I can only imagine how much more fun happened after they got drunker. There’s something practically Muslim about how almost all Japanese socializing is same sex. I love it!
Soon there was a horde of hot young 20 year olds combining traditional dress with big fried hair and excess testosterone. It didn’t take long for them to start falling all over each other, lit cigarettes in hand. I hope that they needed to pose for me, as much as I enjoyed their antics. I especially like how you can see inside the fallen boy’s skirt, I mean, “hakama” (袴).
For some reason, many Japanese assume that I spend lots of time in Roppongi. I always want to remind them that I neither work for a multinational bank, nor frequent female whores. But rarely, work or a culture event forces me to confront this most “foreign friendly” neighborhood. This slutty Christmas dress epitomizes my absolute horror at being in Roppongi or in any way associated with what goes down there.
This image of Sakurai Sho in a fall skirt is a palate cleanser after yesterday’s iccky story about frustrated Japanese heteros and the foreigners who can’t stop thinking about them.
Given the continued heat in Tokyo, it seems early to be thinking of wool, but that’s fashion and commerce I guess.
What do you think of skirts on men? This super-layered look makes Sho-san’s hips seem extremely wide and lady-like. Are the below the knee pants and tweed jacket supposed to add some masculinity to this look?
What do you think? Would you dress your man like this?
Tokyo has some of the world’s most well dressed, primped and spoiled pooches. Hoodies, purple jean skirts, glitter all make these doggies look good. Tokyo is also full of hair accessories and special baby carts just for dogs. Bottom line is you’re not looking good if your doggie isn’t!
The “pair look” is huge in Japan. When opposite sex couples dress up in matching clothes, glasses and hair, does this make them somewhat “gay”? I love the collapse of difference. Do couples do this where you live?
Snapped in Yoyogi. Not sure if that’s a skirt or a dress over pants.
