Kjeld Duits About the Photographer

Inspired by the stunningly creative street fashion that exploded on the streets of Tokyo and Osaka in the late 1990’s, photo-journalist Kjeld Duits launched JAPANESE STREETS in 2002. This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion.

strange but beautiful watch!!!

This gets said all the time, but she doesn’t look Japanese at all, but also quintessentially Japanese at the same time. Her hair is wonderful, and also her nose. :)
Did you happen to get a good look at her belt closure? Looks like a safety pin!

@petitesam: Oops, I kind of overlooked that somehow… I should have made a detail shot of that, it looks really cool.

it’s the details that add a lot to this outfit, like the belt and watch and earrings. she looks very well put together!

She has a very pretty face! I love her gorgeous earrings and kooky watch!

BEAUTIFUL name. I’ve never been to Japan, but something tells me that that’s not a typical name. Maybe that’s because all the Japanese people I do know have names like Yumi, Yuki, etc. Ok, I admit, those are the only two common Japanese names I can think of among friends I know. The only other Japanese female I know is named Kumiko, and I think she said it’s not common. I do know (only through facebook and i’ve never talked to him on there before. you know, the whole adding for decoration type thing?) a guy named Keisuke?

@Etsune: Actually, Kisara is a very uncommon name. Kumiko is actually quite common. Even a Google search in English gives 1,570,000 results. But perhaps the kanji (Japanese characters) for her name are unusual. Even when the name itself is common it can be made unusual by using uncommon kanji. Here is a helpful list with common first names in Japan. Incidentally, Kisara is not on the list, Kumiko is.

@Kjeld Duits: Ahh, I understand. I think my friend Kumiko may have thought that I would have seen it as strange because I’m American. She’s a native of Japan and has been going to college here in America, and she speaks English well for someone Japanese, considering the huge culture gap there is when it comes to language…
Anyways, at least my hunch about the name Kisara was right. It really IS gorgeous.
Anyways, I have a question for you. Since you’re currently in Japan and surely know quite a few Japanese people, I have a few name questions. I plan on moving to Japan when I’m older (Just turned 16 last week) and out of college, and I have a thing about naming my children uncommon names: I REALLY want to. Are Misa and Moira common names over there?

Jun 30, 2010 (4423 days ago)

@Etsune: Wow you sure start thinking early of names for your children! Neither Misa nor Moira is a common name in Japan at the moment. But Japanese names change every ten years or so. Although there are lots of exceptions, you can usually make a fairly good guess of the person’s age here just from the name.

@Kjeld Duits: Yeah, you’re right, I do. And I can guarantee you I most likely will not use them. Three years ago, I was thinking of COMPLETELY different names. Then again, that was before I was struck with the beauty of asian culture lol.

Jun 30, 2010 (4423 days ago)

wow. simple and quite classy, not too overdone like some of the people here.

I am beyond in love with that watch!

@andrea: Me too! It is kind of Art Nouveau-like, don’t you think?
