Japanese Ladies Fashion in Shizuoka 1: “Cutie” waiting inside the station

Sissi at With a Glass mentioned she would like to see more pictures of Japanese fashion, especially ladies, when she found one inserted in a report on a Japanese Festival!
I agreed it might interest quite a few people in spite of the title of this blog.
Mind you, it is a slightly risky job to take such pictures although a mobile phone camera is easier to use and less conspicuous than a real camera!
I don’t want to ask people to pose (unless they ask!), so I do have to be discreet and has too miss out a lot of great pictures!
Shizuoka is actually considered the hardest Prefecture to sell in Japan and it is a constant trial area for the big Tokyo companies. “If you sell in Shizuoka, you sell everywhere!” has become a proverb in Japanese fashion.
The weather being mild all year round fashion is easy to wear here although Shizuoka Fashionistas are vain and fashion slaves to the point of wearing long booots on the 1st of September even if it 35 degrees outside!
I am not inerested in taking pictures of anorexic and obese fashionistas (I wouls have to start another blog!) who have no sense of balance or harmony either!
Let’s hope I do not get arrested in my efforts to discover some cute ladies to show you!

I called this particular picture,[ “Cutie” waiting inside the station], as “cutie” is a fashion genre indeed. The young lady (18+?) above is not a complete “cutie” with frills in hair and the like, but the socks and the skirt definitely are.
I must admit she is actually quite cute!

  1. Robert-Gilles, thank you so much for introducing this new series of posts! (And thank you for the link to my blog!). I’m looking forward to see more Japanese fashion tendencies (or groups?), which seem to be sometimes completely different from any other country.
    You are totally right: she is cute! (It the style called “cute” in Japanese or is there a Japanese word? kawaii?).
    By the way, I have recently read about the concept of “iki”… It’s apparently not only about fashion (maybe food?) and sounds extremely interesting.


    1. Dear Sissi!
      You are most welcome!
      Actually you are right this is more or less a mixtyre of cutie and kawaii, but in Japan the borders are easily crossed!
      As for iki I will have to ask my friends in the fashion company for which I occasionally do work!


      1. We shall now address you as our fashion police / ambassador from now on! ^ _ ^ Work hard to bring us more fashion trend photos from Japan! Good luck!~


      2. I’m afraid I have no option left but totake on the challenge! LOl
        But don’t expect me to be too fast at the beginning although I promise to work hard at it!


      3. *Salute!* We shall all wish you the best of luck and stealth in your fashion prodigy! (^_ ^ )/
