Harajuku Girls for a Day

What does Finland and Japan have in common? You can Wikipedia all you like, but you are probably going to end up with the same answer as us...not much! Well atleast that is what we thought but it seems as if we were oh so very wrong.

The answer is Harajuku Girls! While we are not entirely sure that any 'real' Harajuku Girls exist in Finland, we have definitely spotted some Finnish Harajuku Girls in Japan. We even have the pics to prove it!

Inspired by some of our personal favs; Kera and Fruitsthese girls were on a two week Tokyo pilgrimage when we spotted them on a sunny corner in Harajuku.

In awe of their popularity and intrigued by their inspiration we just had to stop for a quick chat and photo op.

Decked out in Takuya Angel, a much loved Harajuku label, one of the students confessed there really wasn't any kind of street scene quite like the Harajuku one in Finland. A bit of Cosplay here, a bit of dress up there but no true scene to speak of. Both students surprisingly spent a hard earned fortune on their dress ups, on a much dreamt about Tokyo shopping spree.

Surrounded by the rest of the Harajuku crew, not content just to shop and watch, these cosplayers were rewarded for their audacity with endless requests for photos and the chance to be Harajuku Girls for a day.
