This photograph was taken in the open space of the TOKYO DOME city, Tokyo. In the open space, many groups of the girl who wore colorful and novel clothes were seen on that day. It seems to costumes a little differet from the girl who sees well in Harajuku or Akihabara. They wear clothes like the hero who comes out in comics. The hair of the head is dyed to color and appearance like comics is carried out. Commonly, it is a race called Otaku. Otaku is a general term for the fan of the subculture born in Japan in the 1970s. It is supposed that it has a peculiar behavioral pattern and culture. It originates the name limited to the fan of anime and SF as only used partly, generally it began to be known to a bubble boom term. The fan of a larger domain is included and the actual condition is not clear now. Generally, although it(Otaku) has deep concern in a certain hobby and things, the other extensive knowledge, and sociality are explained as a missing person. It seems to the narcissist who is doing such a dress as part of self-expression. I withhold at this place for judgment whether this is good or bad or ignores.

sarą forse perchč queste ragazze hanno un aspetto esotico, ma quiesto ritratto mi piace in maniera particolare, anche per l'ottimo taglio che hai dato alla foto, oltre alla particolare nitidezza e luminositą dello scatto.
Sono anche molto piacevoli i colorie attira in maniera particolare l'abbigliamento vivace della ragazza di destra.
Un ottimo lavoro, come d'altronde sei solito fare.
Ciao e buona giornata

I don't know anything about this kind of subculture, but young Japanese are famous for their love of "cute" things. I think it is catching on among young people in Europe as well. This is an unusual picture but very interesting and very colourful.

This culture has even influenced some young people here in Scandinavia too. Your capture here is very interesting and it is also a very attractive picture with a good composition and very pleasant colours.

The girls in haute couture seem to be happy and content with their lives.I believe that contentment is the very basic need of being alive and kicking - about what we feel and do.The girls are are cute too.Well done.TFS.

This is a wonderfully composed, technically excellent delight to the eye. Once again, I am impressed by the tidiness of your framing.

Hello Mikio - I find this sub-culture quite bizarre but fascinating too. I have seen some TV documentaries on this and I still don't really have a clue as to what it is about. However, the costumed girls make a brilliant subject and I can see quite clearly how much effort (and expense) goes into their 'look'. This pair seem to be based on Alice-in-Wonderland. A superb documentary shot. Warm regards Rosemary

I will say, no matter where in the world an unusual dress code if it's not a costume party.
Photo is of perfect quality.
Respect my dear friend

Spotted those girls in a diff. style from what yusualy seen in Japan, and reading the note I see you do not approve - but to my view, this Otaku is rather better self-presentation, than a punk mode.
Anyway, you found a nice POV over, and taken well their profile with colored hair. Nicely case presented.

Good catch which brings them to life as they are unaware of your lens, they attract the eye for obvious reasons but at the same time providing a great record shot Their outfits and colours shine through to brighten up the grey day, a picture that tells a story and nice taken and presented in a superb manner. Good narratives too and much appreciated. Congrats

Hi Mikio !!
we are back from our 9 week trip visiting 7 countries....... fabulous.......
I like this photo and I also like your comments but I am still interested in your personal views ??????? I think that it is pretty harmless...... youth exploring the boundaries...... as long as there is NO DRUGS and excess alcohol...... I think that is O.K.
