About us

Real people. Real Clothes. Real cool!

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 started JAPANESE STREETS on November 22, 2002.

This makes JS one of the first fashion blogs on the net, and the very first to cover Japanese street fashion in English.

Japan’s Latest Trends at your Finger Tips

JS uploads many thousands of photos every year and regularly publishes interviews with designers and artists. Since 2005, JS also covers the Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo.

The site additionally offers a simple fashion directory with information about Japanese fashion magazines, fashion brands and fashion schools.
