    What an interesting hat! I really wonder know the design explanation… Traditionnal hat mixes with a personal touch? Stylist creation? Very intriguing, really playful!

    The urban troubadour, nice! Eye-popping creepers and shorts. Thanx for sharing!

    Such a contrast from the kimono looks posted earlier. Love the leopard kicks!

    Good sense of proportion, with a keen eye for color. The fishnet effect is diminished by the undergarment, however.
    Maybe, he’s listening to Ryuichi Sakamoto.

    the streets hustled with the energy of cascading neurons, splaying forth rivers of transmitters and chemical junk.

    for him, looking about the muck, it was eat or be eaten.

    I don’t know how I feel about this. And that’s precisely why I adore your website as much as I do. It’s an explosion of wearable art, thank you for being an inspiration every single day!

    I really like the jacket he is wearing. His whole outfit is very interesting. So much to look at.

    I know I will be in the vast minority here, but all of these Japanese kids look kind of sickly, vaguely hostile and like they’re trying way too hard to be “different” for my taste. I realize it’s a cultural thing, but give me a happy, healthy Parisian lass any day.

    This is definitely an interesting look but I like how comfortable he is. He’s just being himself.

    Not to insult your work Scott, but this gentleman rather looks like that PUA Mystery from Las Vegas. Just an alternative view!

    Oh well! If you must!

    @Lis-Have you heard of the “homogenous” Japanese society? Oh, yes, they have to try very hard to stand out. Really a matter of confidence to be one of many.

    amazing photograph
    LOVE your blog :)

    I think I agree with Lis. They try so hard to stand out, that they all end up looking different the same way. And the expressions on their faces are really very unfriendly and far too serious for someone wearing a big mushroom on his head. You just know there are ten other people with the same big hat nearby. But it seems like other people like it here.

    i have been living in Tokyo for the last 10 years. i don’t particularly care for the look above, but it seems to me perhaps your judgment is too harsh. i wonder if you have spent much time here…doesn’t seem so.
    i am a bit disappointed that the photos from tokyo seem to be mostly of a certain array of young people. but that is what stands out to foreigners most when they are here. it is a special culture, after all, even if it is not your (or my) favorite.

    Scott, I think this may be my favorite series of yours to date! They are fascinating, these photos from Tokyo… Tokyo street style is like no other! Everyone is so individualistic and yet they all have a similar influence… You are a street style anthropologist, documenting a most fascinating form of expression.

    Knits! He’s wearing so many knits at once – I suspect his hat is knitted and felted. I wonder if he did any of that himself?

    Great capture Scott!!
    Like his outfit and the street shot really gives a good impression how the subject blends with his surrounding …or stands out.
