I know a place in the UK (in London) so I'm sure there has to be somewhere similar in the states - try and find a japanese centre of somesort and they'll stock a selection of magazines. Good luck!

Japanese embassies and consulates usually maintain cultural centres offering the latest newspapers, magazines and journals. Sometimes you're even allowed to borrow them.

in the US

try contacting the Kinokuniya bookstore....they have them in several locations throughout the two coasts, as well as the website here:

http://www.kinokuniya.com/newyork/location.html

you should be able to order them....assuming you don't mind paying the prices.... :D

Sadly Japanese street fashion has become a myth, five years ago it was real crazy, but now the fashion has changed and the majority of the folk's you saw in Fruits are now wearing hip hop clothes.
You will be suprised at disappointing it can be, Harajuku has changed lots recently and they built this big 'mall' type thing for all the indepenant fashion butiques, so like its all gone crazy!

oh no!

na, loads of 'visual gays' and gothic lolitas, but not many horror goths or real crazy, crazy homemade original fashions.

oh that’s sad :(
I see masses of people here that don’t really dare to be themselves, it’s sad if this is a common phenomenom...I always support people who are creative, wear what they want to wear etc...I think the worst are the teenagers, who just "have to" have the exact type of jeans etc.
Please,please,crazy people,don’t give up,you’re my inspiration :)
