Previous  |

The first thing that comes to mind when you mention spring in Japan is sakura!(cherry blossoms)

Cherry blossom season is still a very cold time of year in Japan, but sometimes you just have to sacrifice a few things like warmth and comfort for the sake of fashion.

As the sakura reached full-bloom we paid a visit to Maizuru-koen to check out the fashions of hanami 2012 and show you how the locals do it in style.

Fukuoka hanami fashion report 2012!

1.Two Friends

The first people we met on our fashion snap expedition were these two. We caught them fluttering about here and there looking for the best spot to set up camp and relax underneath the blooming sakura.
Spring colored stole as focal point

Her stole captures the colors of spring and is certainly an attention grabber for this outfit.
The chemical denim jacket and white cotton pants are also a great match!
