Japan is home to many odd things, and fashion subcultures are among their strangest and most interesting.
I spent a good part of the afternoon just enjoying the sights and snapping some of the Japanese fashionistas:
Girl tries to stop traffic with her fashion statement.
"A-are you wearing the -" "..Chanel boots? Yes."
Sharp shiny sharkskin suit.
Fur muffler, fur-trimmed heels.
High-schoolers after shopping at 109.
Obviously, hip-hop's not quite dead yet.
Some bared their legs in the cold.
While others covered up.
