J-Fashion Magazines

One question we get asked over and over again, is where you can buy Japanese fashion magazines.

Bookmark and Share

Two places to check out are the JAPANESE STREETS Japanese fashion magazine directory and the JAPANESE STREETS Shopping section.

Another great option is online pop culture mega-shop J-List, a loyal sponsor and supporter of JAPANESE STREETS. Here are some of the magazines that you can order from J-List.

FRUITS

FRUITS

Thanks to its book editions, FRUITS is now the best recognized Japanese street fashion print magazine outside Japan. Thin and simple, it nevertheless manages to introduce some of the best trendsetters in Harajuku as they roam the streets. The original urban street fashion magazine that made Harajuku famous all over the world.

Gothic & Lolita Bible

Gothic & Lolita Bible

Published several times a year, the appropriately named and amazingly thick (125 pages!) Gothic & Lolita Bible is the last word on gothic and lolita fashion in Japan. This gorgeous full-color magazine features photographs of new items, specials on popular brands, introductions to shops, illustrations, detailed how-to’s and tons of tips and other info. Because the magazine is so incredibly well-illustrated it is worth buying even if you don’t speak Japanese and already read the English version. Each issue also comes with gifts such as stickers, and a complete pattern for making your own outfit.

KERA

KERA

I often run into the photographer who does the street snaps for KERA and am always amazed at their system. The moment he arrives on his spot in front of Harajuku GAP, people start to arrive to get their photos taken. They e-mail their friends to inform them that he is there and the word gets around in no time. It shows in the quality of this magazine’s street snaps. It gives an excellent overview of what is hot on the streets of Tokyo right now, from punk to Goth-Loli.

Besides snaps, KERA also features photographs of models, apparel by itself, articles about JPOP artists, and make-up tips and accessory information. A must-have if you are interested into the fringe urban fashion that Harajuku is famous for.

Like the Gothic & Lolita Bible, it is a massive magazine, but the editors somehow manage to print a new issue each and every month.
