Favorite Japanese Street Snap Blogs

In September, I had some major fun outings with my local lolita comm and Japanese Club! Going out to eat at a Japanese restaurant (hibachi, which is actually an American concept of teppanyaki), going on a brewery tour in lolita, and eating southern style food in the Midwest for dinner. I've also been buying accessories off taobao through Taobaotrends (shipped!). My Taobao GO from my comm also got shipped (we waited for some dresses to get made... orz) Other things in the mail is my dream print~ It's the Chess Story Marriage D'Amour High Waist Skirt! I've always regretted not paying full price when it popped up on the fb sales group.

Speaking of fashion, I follow a few Japanese Street Snap blogs that are well known amongst Tumblr jfashion fans! Do you like street fashion? I hope that you'll decide to follow them too soon~

Japanese Streets

This website is the oldest out of the bunch? It is the one that I followed first when looking for street snap blogs online. The most well known monthly magazine is FRUiTS, which spread the word around the world with its compilation books (1, 2). You can get it at cdjapan or Yesasia (cdjapan is actually cheaper than buying it through Kinokuniya, although the wait is longer for SAL shipping)

Tokyo Fashion

This is one of the more well-known street fashion blogs on tumblr, partially because it has collaborations/photoshoots with style icons like Minori (shironuri) & Hirari Ikeda (jfashion, model). They also do "feature" articles of fashion parties and events around Japan (mostly Harajuku). Harajuku Fashion Walk has been photographed for a long while too! It helps that it has an official tumblr to share the pictures. I always take inspiration from the avant garde hairstyles and fashion.

Tokyo Faces

This blog just got on my radar recently since they probably took some photos of lolita, cult party kei or fairy kei girls. I ended up following them because they have an RSS feed! They also have a tumblr~


This is a curated blog of street fashion all around Japan (not just Harajuku!) by the Japan Fashion Association. You get a ton of different fashion styles like crazy OTT Harajuku or The only downfall of this website is that you cannot subscribe via an RSS feed nor do they have a Facebook page...


A newly found addition for me, it's been around for a while. Somebody reblogged a repost of the photos and this site is fresh and has an open feeling to their photographs~ They are also really fast at retweeting stuff (like a minute after I tweeted about it, they retweeted me! O_o;) People join their page and tweet their coord to @ridsnap and it gets retweeted? The best way to keep track of this site is through their Facebook page!


Another find while looking for more street fashion blogs. It's quite nice and has a gritty real feel compared to the other ones mentioned earlier.

Fashionsnap.com Street Snap

Wow, I really like the styles in this blog! I love that it has a girl with a tiger head backpack on one of the snaps~ Every snap has such a clean look to it.

This has a list of various street snap blogs/websites. It is pretty comprehensive but I gotta hate the Comic Sans~
