Harajuku Girls Tokyo Singing Group

Leave a Comment

Harajuku is a place in Tokyo where, on Sundays, Japanese youth will gather to strut their stuff wearing all sorts of odd clothing combinations. Additionally, there are sometimes informal music performances, and these girls pictured above were part of a singing group (that in truth wasn't very good).

A couple of guys in their Sunday's finest pose for pictures near Harajuku Station in Tokyo. Many teenagers and young adults congregate around the station and its adjoining park on Sundays to show off their sometimes rather extravagant costumes. This is is a way to rebel, in a small way, against the enforced conformity of Japanese society. Ironically, many dress up in groups of similarly-clad friends.

Goth-Loli Fashion Harajuku

Harajuku I, originally uploaded by little-wings.

I visited Harajuku today, not my first time there by far but my first time on a Sunday (when all the Japanese kids dress up and promonade on the bridge by the Meiji Shrine). It wasn't actually as crowded as I thought it might be, but I'd gotten a late start, and I think some people had already gone home.

Generally, there are several styles of Japanese cosplay: A lot of the youth on the bridge were dressed in what is sometimes known as the "Goth-Loli Fashion" (short for "gothic” and “Lolita"). This essentially involves increably fancy goth-style babydoll outfits. For examples, you can check out the links below.

"Harajuku Girls" yes... this is what some of them look like. Basically every Sunday if you go to Harajuku station just outside of the famous area called Harajuku you'll find kids and teenagers dressed like this and in other fun and outrageous costumes. This place is a hot bed for creative expression and overall a great public space for performance artists and musicians. And yes... they all love to be photographed.

Another one of my favorites from my Harajuku Girls series of photos. This will probably be my last from this series until I'm able to go back to Japan. I hope you liked them.

Harajuku Phose

Harajuku Phose Cosplay


A collection of Harajuku inspired crisp, preppy separates has an easy feel. Fine seersucker blouses and cropped boxy blazers appear in multi coloured ticking stripes. Capes and oversize cardigans are layered over clean cut gingham shell-blouses and skinny and carrot leg jeans. 1970’s style blue jeans, slouchy shorts and ra-ra skirts work with cute logo Ts in young, primary colours while 50s’ style summer dresses add sophistication. A palette of red, blue and white dominates, highlighted with degrade citrus lemon and orange. Brightly coloured t-bar flats, doctor and bowling bags complete the story.
