10 Japanese Trends That Are Almost Too Weird to Be Real

The land of the Rising Sun is no doubt majestically beautiful and charming. It has a stunning ancient culture, kind people, and awesome sights. Yet for us non-Asians, it sometimes appears to be extremely weird. There are trends we don’t really understand like their addiction to face filter apps that enlarge the eyes to extreme sizes or their love for various face-training devices.

Bright Side has collected 10 trends for you that seem almost too crazy to exist. Enjoy!

1. Decora

You may easily get what this style is about, as its name comes from the English word “decoration.” The style originated in the late 90s and was popular in the 2000s, but now it has come back with a renewed vigor.

The make-up is mostly natural to make the people who dress in this style look more child-like, but the most interesting part begins when it comes to accessories. They’re bright, and there’s a lot of them. When we say “a lot,” we mean this. The style supporters use everything: face stickers, glitter, colorful band-aids, bobby pins, clips and bows, bracelets and necklaces, multi-colored socks, stockings, and leg and arm warmers — basically anything they can find and put on to show their inner child to the world.
