Word of the Day 2/28/2005

Harajuku Girls

Popularized in the United States by the Gwen Stefani song "Rich Girl", Harajuku Girls refers to the hip, young teenagers who hang out in Harajuku, which is a shopping and entertainment district in Tokyo. Supposedly the kids who line the streets look like they were ripped out of a manga cartoon. I can't wait to go there.

I'm not a fan of Gwen S., nor her mass-marketing of Harajuku girls; however, I was in Tokyo and they are the bomb. They're cool about allowing you to take pictures with them, but they can be short with you as their goals is to get in fashion mags.
