Photographer's Note

She looks like she is thinking "where would I rather be? anyplace but here"

The girls that you see sometimes on the street in japan with the fake tans and inches of makeup are sometimes called pandas because of the stripe of makeup around the eyes. this girl has it a little bit but not full blown. but she fits with the kogal image that you see around Japan allot. There are a few other pictures around trek earth of these kind of girls. Most of them are in High school.


I heard that recently there is a tred for these girls to join something that is akin to gangs and part of proving themselves they have to be burnt by cigarettes on their arms. I heard this froma friend of mine when I saw a panda girl on the train with about 20 pairs of burn marks up and down her arms. Im getting off topic but....


This girl was just bored as one could be standing out in the heat of summer handing out advertisements to people walking by.

is there a theme for japanese kogals/pandas? maybe there should be. I have a few of these girls snaped.
