Harajuka= Western Influence+Japanese Girls+Massive amounts of Drugs+Fashion gone wrong.

Japanese people who try to be trendy are more dangerous than any weapons of mass destruction.

Yes, Mononoke, they do.

To see more girls like this, check out the Gothic & Lolita Bible, a Japanese publication that is a fashion magazine for the "gothy" J-peeps (boys and girls). Because, after all, we mustn't leave out the guys... There are the boys that like to dress like this, too. Take Mana for example, who the girls in the gothy frilly blue stuff in that one picture are trying to dress like.

Im not one to hate on the way someone decides to dress, but at that age, what in the world is influencing them to dress like that.

I absolutely adore Harajuku. On sundays is when they gather but sometimes you get the occassionally gothic or gothic lolita on the other days. There is a bridge right ourside of the exit that leads to a temple. It's a huge pedestrian bridge, so people just sit around and talk to everyone. The area is not just for the goth scene. On Takeshita Street there are goth, rock, fruits, punk, hip hop, hippy, etc etc style. On the street parallel to it, there are trendy stores like Louis Vitton, Gucci, and the like. Definately an interesting area. I recommend checking it out if you're into that sort of thing. I dont get down there nearly as often anymore, but I do try to go once a month or so.

haaaah. It's wiggidy whack, yo. XD

I want to go to Harajuku and dress all fun....

When I worked at House of Anime, I was like the resident gothy consultant or something. The owner would call me into his office and show me a bunch of gothic lolita items and ask if I thought American goths would buy them, since they are so popular in Japan. Some things were really cool, but others...like the maids hairpiece things...were likely only items that Jrock fanpeople or cosplayers would wear. And, since he planned to sell these things at cons, I figure they'd probably do fairly well. *shrugs*

Personally, I wouldn't wear the frilly goth stuff. I'd go for the much more simple look... With perhaps leather, or vinyl, and fishnet. *nods*

OMG! I don't see how you can think they look Goth! The whole basis for Goth is wearing Black. They are the opposite of Goth, they look like Anti-Gothic. I admit, the look has a certaint appeal. Some of them do look pretty hot, but I just can't call them Goth. It's more like some crazy punk style, if you ask me. Oh, and yahoo Images is a good place to find more pics.
Oh, and by the way. I couldn't find it under Harajuka, but I did find it under Harajuku.

EDIT: Here's a pic

Personaly, I really love the Harajuka Girl style, I myself dress like this.. o_o; But, you have to realize that not all Harajuku girls dress "Gothic" Some Gothic Lolita is very pretty, and if you can pull off wearing it then I say go for it;Nevertheless, I've known many people to wear Hello Kitty stuff, like things from Sanrio ( Like what I wear ) It's very fun. ^^;;

Here's my picture:

...Yes, It's different, but if all of you can understand and like/love Anime and Manga, that I am sure that you would all understand why Japanese girls dress like this, well.. some of them. ^^; I'm not pointing fingers at anyone, and I'm not trying to make a fight.. but I really do dress this way.. and I wouldn't like people making fun of it. Thanks. ^__^;

Hm. First and foremost, I never realized that goth was labelled through clothes. Harajuka Girls (though that name is politically incorrect, for I think it is done by both genders] are far from goth. Their fashion is a self-made form of art. I find it interesting and cool.

I would love to be a Harajuka Girl; unfortunately, I lack the creativity to become one.

People, people. It's spelt HARAJUKU. It is a place in Tokyo. the term Harajuku Girls was coined by Gwen Stefani.
