What is Japanese Lolita? Let's check the points to note when visiting shrines and temples and sightseeing in the ancient capital

I want to wear Japanese-style clothes when visiting shrines and temples, sightseeing in ancient cities such as Nara and Kyoto, and historical places such as Asakusa and castle towns.

However, it is difficult to put on a kimono, and it is also difficult to clean it after getting dirty.

"Japanese-style Lolita fashion" is useful for going out to such historical locations.


When visiting shrines and temples in Lolita fashion or visiting ancient cities, it may be necessary to be considerate of other tourists.

We will introduce about Japanese Lolita fashion, recommended coordination, things to be aware of when sightseeing in historical sights, and more.

 

What is Japanese Lolita fashion?

Japanese Lolita fashion is a combination of traditional Japanese clothing such as kimonos, hakama, and yukata, and European-originated dress fashion designed in the Harajuku street style of Lolita fashion.

It is called "Wa-Loli" for short in Japanese.

The characteristic of Japanese Lolita, which can produce unique glamor, is the fusion of traditional Japanese clothing culture and Western-style dresses.

The design changes greatly depending on the mix of styles, and you can see various types of styles in Japanese Lolita.

There are a wide variety of Japanese lolita fashion design authentic items such as decorative obis, real kimono, yukata and belt arranged in Lolita style. There are many trends, including Western-style jumper skirts.

The design points of Japanese lolita fashion are clothes that incorporate the design elements of kimono and hakama. Collar designs that match kimono, blouse with long sleeves like kimono, and fabrics with Japanese patterns like kimono and gold thread that feels like an belt and prints with classic Japanese patterns.

Japanese-style Lolita fashion is representative of Japanese-style Lolita fashion, combining Japanese-style accessories such as clogs and Japanese sandals with a voluminous skirt with panniers from Lolita fashion. 

The roots of Japanese Lolita are "coordination that blends Japanese and Western styles."

The Japanese-Western fusion coordination of Meiji retro and Taisho romance is wonderful, isn't it?

Wearing a kimono is difficult, but many people think that they want to go to modern architecture, antique markets, shrines and the Setsubun festival with coordinate that feel the Meiji retro and Taisho romance.

After the Meiji Restoration, a lot of Western culture came into Japan, and it is said that female students were the first to adopt it skillfully.

From the culture of wearing kimono and hakama until then, the style that was born by jumping on the trend to incorporate Western culture even a little, is often seen at modern university graduation ceremonies. It seems that it was a style that blended Japanese and Western styles such as lace-up boots and kimono and shawls. Exactly Japanese loli fashion!


Even in modern times, even if you want to wear a kimono, it can be difficult to maintain and difficult to put on.

While you have to be careful about storage, Japanese-style lolita clothes have the advantage of being easy to wear with buttons even though they have a kimono-like design.

Japanese lolita The clothes are easy to move around when visiting shrines, cherry blossom viewing, theme parks, etc. Even if you wear a modest pannier, you will look good, so it is recommended for trips to ancient cities and shrines.


When going to places that are expected to be very crowded, such as going to Hatsumode(The new year’s visit to a shrine) in Lolita fashion, choose a time you can avoid the crowds.

If you are going to popular sightseeing spots in Lolita fashion, wear panniers as sparingly as possible.

Of course, when you go out to shrines, temples, or historically named places in Lolita fashion, you should follow good manners, and please be careful not to take portraits during busy times.

If you are a Lolita who wants to take pictures and are going to a tourist spot, we recommend you to visit the tourist spot when the gates open in the morning.

There is no problem with taking a few commemorative photos as long as you do not disturb other worshipers, but please always remember to be considerate of those around you.


If you go to Kyoto in Lolita fashion, you can enjoy the natural beauty of the four seasons, such as Arashiyama's "Togetsukyo Bridge" and Sagano 's "Chikurin no Michi", where you can meet the atmosphere and natural beauty of Kyoto. Let's enjoy a photo session in Lolita fashion.

There are few people in the early morning hours and the air is pure. Visit Daikakuji Temple, Jojakkoji Temple and enjoy sweets at a teahouse...


Going out to Kyoto in Japanese Lolita fashion during the cherry blossom season is also very nice.

Just thinking about wearing Japanese lolita fashion, eating around the temple towns and castle towns, and visiting historical buildings makes you excited.

 

If you go sightseeing early in the morning, you can enjoy the world view even more without people appearing in the photo. So I will recommend it. Please enjoy it.
