The Harajuku Fashion Walk, with deep Japanese roots, is slowly becoming an international event.

Bookmark and Share

The Harajuku Fashion Walk started as 100% Japanese affair. But just two walks before it reaches the magic number 20, it is now truly turning into an international event. At yesterday’s Harajuku Fashion Walk, out of a total of 62 participants, no less than 22 people were from outside Japan. Almost a third! And an increasing number of cities around the world are now organizing their own Harajuku Fashion Walk. The Harajuku Fashion Walk is slowly becoming a movement.

Kjeld Duits About the Author

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.

Nice! And a few familiar faces there! :) This must’ve been fun! How many miles/km did you walk? I suppose a consideration of comfy shoes would be important? :)

I love seeing so many people from outside Japan taking part too! It’s just nice to see people bonding over fashion like that _ Lovely pictures.

@Adam: It brings out her forehead real well, don’t you think?

@Kimi: I don’t think many of the participants consider comfort when they dress for the HFW. ^_- We don’t really walk that much. Harajuku is not that large and the HFW takes only 2 hours, with a 30 to 45 minute break in between for shooting photos and socializing.

@Jenni: Yes, it is a very interesting and unexpected, but nice development!

@Kjeld that’s so cool! Yeah I can survive high heels for that long a time. I imagine the HFW will get incredibly popular very very soon!

@Kimi: It will be difficult if the number becomes too large—on Sundays, Harajuku streets are quite crowded…
