Today is Seijin no hi, Coming of Age Day, on which Japan celebrates those who have turned 20 this past year. Lots of super garish kimonos for the girls, and more sober kimonos for the gyaruo peacocks who mix tradition with huge fried hair.
The image above is courtesy of Julie in Japan, one of my favorite foreign bloggers in Japan. Why are Canadians so cool?! Julie is the perfect blogger: original, prolific, fun, and incredibly sweet disposition.
Last year my post did not include any original images or even found ones of young male fashion outlaws. I’ll be trolling Nakano today hoping to find some good snaps with the new camera.
Dear readers, please send me or link to any good images you create or find!!
