The Nippori neighborhood close to the Nippori Station (serviced by the Yamanote JR line) is the place to go if you want very cheap, fashionable clothing Tokyo’s teenagers wear. Crammed stores like Pop Girl and Heiwadō (ヘイワ堂) are much cheaper than similar shops in Shibuya and Harajuku, and their outfits are just as weird and crazy as well. On top of it all these stores have a huge amount of stuff with strange Engrish that we all love so much.

Now this was easy to spot: "Beutyful" on this striped girl's t-shirt.

The highlight on this cat-oriented t-shirt is "Bloeing away the cobwebs".

This was from a collection of very strange and over-the-top punk style t-shirts. Please note the place where the "Open House" sign is pointing at.

No Engrish, but still a ridiculously overdone t-shirt for Japanese males in my humble opinion.

  1. Hi, Boris

    I am always amazed by the Japanese, their culture, their way of life, their technology, but I can not understand the way they think, their movies…

    PS: Excellent blog Boris
