Some of them also wear fake bandages and blood and carry items, such as cell phones, halo kitties, and photo stickers, which symbolize modern Japan. The varied fashion style of these girls is beautifully displayed by ‘FRUiTS’, the most popular street-fashion magazine in Japan.

Their purpose

Why are these Harajuku girls wearing such outrageous clothes every weekend? Is their love for fashion that drives them to do it? The answer is no ‘. There are many deeper reasons behind it. The weekly ceremony that lasted only for a few hours allowed them to not only spend their free time and money, but also to momentarily escape the strict rules of male-dominated Japanese society.

However, these girls are very fun loving, polite, and beautiful. They want to pose for photos with you if you ask them to have fun.

In short, Harajuku district is a must-visit place on weekends for everyone visiting Tokyo. If you really want to see a unique blend of tradition and modernization of Japanese society, surely you do not miss the opportunity to meet this beautiful fashion icon and Japanese beauty star.
