This holiday I was feeling lonely after my girlfriend left me.
With several days on my own, I was facing difficult times. So I set myself a little challenge. I decided I would approach as many girls as possible and ask to take a photo of them. My task taught me a lot about Japanese women and I even made some new friends in the process.
As you can see, they smile a lot, although the business lady kept it sexy and very cool. The fashion in Japan is diverse.You rarely see two girls who look the same way.
I identified a few trends, for example the baggy jeans as in photo one. But the women in Japan are as individual and different as the stars in the galaxy.
Yuki, Clothes shop
I saw her in a clothes shop. I asked if I could take her photo and she agreed, I got her a vanilla crepe from Dipper Dan for her trouble.
Matsumoto, Narita Airport
Female flight attendants are one of the reasons I never complain about flying is being able to see women like her. I’m very happy that they always wear skirts and some kind of heeled shoe.
Two schoolgirls, Kamakura station.
I briefly considered not approaching them but did so anyway. They were both very tall with short skirts and I’m sad that you can’t see them in the photo. Japanese school uniforms are considered the best in the world and a popular fetish item. You rarely see girls wearing trousers.
She swept across my path as I was walking to the bus station. She looks amazing.
Lisako, Hakata Ekimae
One of an army of women I kept seeing in the Hakata business district of Fukuoka. She didn’t mind posing in the slightest, even though it was raining.
RISA NAKANO, BUS STOP
Reona Yamasaki, Kitakyushuu City
She kept laughing and smiling, I took a photo as she was eating a red bean bun.
Mina, radio announcer
She had a knock-out body and perfect makeup.She was so friendly and open.
Haruka and Yukie, Dogo Onsen
Woman on the bus to Canal City Hakata.
My top turn on? Two words: wedge sandals. For some reason they drive me crazy. I think women know this, which is why they wear them.
