Tokyo has been one of the most-sought-for cities when it comes to fashion. Traditional or modern, the creativity has never died down. They still pursue uniqueness and pose identity in their fashion trends today. The traditional kimono and its simpler counterpart, the yukata are still identified as uniquely Japanese, although it also resembles the Chinese hanfu and the Korean hanbok. The Japanese traditional dresses are still used in major occasions, art performances, and festivals in Japan today.
Fast forward to the modern fad in clothing, the elegance of the kimono has turned into kawaii culture and wearing anything cute. The Lolita fashion, a style that resembles the looks of Victorian Era dolls, is the most common among all the kawaii fashion styles. Besides, the hipster and rocker style “visual kei”, and the eccentric gyaru are also up with the Tokyoite fashion trend.
Here at Pop Japan, we pride ourselves on being one of the most passionate promoters of our nation. It is our strong belief that Japan has the ability to offer anyone a very fulfilling life.
