Japanese fashion scene is renowned for being anything from avant-garde to downright bizarre. What I find interesting is the number of subcultures present in Japanese fashion, and the way that people actively take part in each. In any of Japan’s main fashion districts, you’ll see a range of colourful street fashion. Below are just a few Japanese fashion subcultures to get acquainted with.
1. Mori Girls

The Mori Girl subculture is one of the most recent Japanese fashion subcultures to have emerged. Mori Girls took to the scene as late as 2007. As mori means ‘forest’ in Japanese, the style of dressing revolves mainly around an earthy aesthetic. Quaint dresses in earthy tones best exemplify the Mori Girl. Loose layers, natural makeup, and vintage accents complete the look.
