Checking in from Sendai~ [Nov. 22nd, 2013|09:08 pm]
Lolitas in Japan


Hello everyone. My name is Ashley. I'm 27 and I'm currently living in Sendai. My husband and I are both Canadian and we moved to Japan about 2 years ago.

We're both English teachers, although I can only work part time due to my visa. I teach mainly preschool, but I do also teach a few other classes. It's fun and keeps me on my toes. For my wardrobe, I'm currently mainly a sweet lolita. I tend to buy AP or BTSSB things. I have picked up a few classic pieces along the way, but my wardrobe is pretty small at the moment.

My Japanese ability is pretty limited... The first year we were here, we worked at an English manor house themed hotel resort thing and it was in our contract to never speak any Japanese at all while on site. And now, I'm trying to make up for lost time. If anyone is in Sendai and would like to study together, please PM me or something. :)

If there's any lolitas in or around Sendai who would like to maybe meet up, please let me know! :)

Utsunomiya/Tochigi Lolitas? Also, Mbok question. [Nov. 14th, 2013|10:46 pm]
Lolitas in Japan

[Tags|, ]

Hi there! Last month, I started my year long Study abroad trip here at Utsunomiya University in Tochigi Prefecture.  While I've been here for a little more than a month, I've yet to really go out and explore the lolita shops around here, or anywhere for that matter.  I've only been into lolita for about a year and a half, but I really want to take full advantage of my study abroad opportunity and make tons of new friends along the way! So I was wondering if anyone is in my area? or if anyone would like to talk?

Oh, I also had a question regarding Mbok. I've tried twice now, but for some reason my foreign credit card (visa) is not being accepted into their system when I try to create an account. I saw that there is a way to get around the credit card requirement using a cell phone, does anyone have experience with this? Thank you!

Moving to Ibaraki [Jul. 19th, 2013|08:01 am]
Lolitas in Japan

I am moving to Ibaraki in about a week's time. I was wondering if there is an active English-speaking lolita group in Ibaraki, or in Tokyo. I'd be willing to take a long train ride on weekends to meetups. I will be living in Hitachiota. If you guys know of a facebook group I could join, that would be really helpful. Thank you!

Looking for a community and friends in Kobe City and Osaka! [Jun. 15th, 2013|10:21 am]
Lolitas in Japan

Hello everyone, I am moving from Canada to Kobe City in August and I would love to be able to meet some local girls! Can anyone direct me to anyone, or any community that I could join? I am also working on my Japanese, so I would love to get into the local Japanese lolita community as well, and not just limit myself to meeting other English speakers(although, of course I'd love to meet you too!). Does anyone know how to find Japanese lolitas online? I would love to be able to set up some lines of communication before I arrive in my new home.

Looking for friends in Kyoto [Apr. 6th, 2013|04:50 pm]
Lolitas in Japan

Hello!  I'm Lilith, and right now I'm in Kyoto for a year of study abroad (though I will be returning to the States in August).  I only recently got into lolita, thanks to AatP's Elisabeth items, so I would like to make some friends in my area.  Since winter may have finally decided to end, having a picnic might be fun!

I am studying Japanese language at Ritsumeikan University.  My other interests include the Takarazuka Revue, reading, writing, and sewing.  I am a little shy, but I like to practice my Japanese by chatting with the salewomen at stores when I go shopping, so I end up visiting the BTSSB/AatP store in Kawaramachi a lot, even if I haven't amassed a great collection of clothes yet.

Lolita fashion [Feb. 18th, 2013|02:21 pm]
Lolitas in Japan

I'm new so I hope I am not doing anything wrong. I am studying fashion design and I am doing my end of year range on Lolita fashion, so I need to get a better understanding as to what the community is like. I hope I am not stepping on any toes, but If you would be so kind to answer me these questions and either message them back to me or E-mail me (rossouwmonique@gmail.com). I would really appreciate it! Again I am merely trying to learn more not advertise.

1. What is Lolita in your opinion?

2. Why do you like Lolita fashion? What attracts you to it.

3. When Did you start wearing it? and Why? and where do you generally wear it to?

4. What do you like about it?

5. What don't you like about it?

6. What do you find is lacking? (Accessibility, fabric quality, tailoring quality etc.?

7. Any other useful information:

Thank you and sorry for any inconveniences I may have caused.

Looking for a lolita friend in Japan :) (Tokyo or any area!) [Feb. 14th, 2013|06:47 pm]
Lolitas in Japan

Hello, I am going to Japan soon, around 23rd February. I will be there for about 3 months to take a Japanese course.
Well, I love Japanese people and culture since childhood, and it has always been my dream to have a Japanese friend.
I have known some Japaneses through my school's short-term exchange program, but the exchange students are diverse; I mean they have different preferences and hobbies from me. So, it would be great if I have a friend who likes lolita and girly stuff as well ><.
Maybe, we could have a picnic or an afternoon tea!
I also plan to have a strawberry picking trip or a visit to Sanrio puroland too.
I will be staying in Kichijoji (Tokyo).

Opps, I forgot to introduce myself.
I am 16-17 years old and love classical lolita.
I come from Bangkok, Thailand.
I have been studying Japanese for 7 years, and know upper elementary French as well.
I like tea, cinnamoroll and manga!
