ganguro cafe shibuya tokyo


Is this new or old? In Shibuya, a fashion center of Japan or a town for young, “Ganguro Café” opened in January 2015. Didn’t everybody say “ganguro gals” are endangered or extinct now?

By the way, do you know…or remember ganguro gals?

Ganguro gals are young women who tan their skin, wear unique makeups such as dark tan foundation with contrasting bright eye makeup, and have their long hair bleached or dyed in bright color like blond, orange, partly pink, etc. This fashion started to appear in the early 1990’s in Shibuya and Ikebukuro areas. It reached its peak in the latter half of the 90’s and started to fade out upon the commencement of the new century. And now, we hardly see them either in Shibuya or Ikebukuro. Are they really gone?

Well, no!  They have survived!

And, the café bar where ganguro gals cook and serve has opened in their sweet hometown, Shibuya. Right when you step in the café bar, ganguro gals will welcome you. You can enjoy their food and drinks, of course. Communication and taking photos with ganguro gals will probably be fun as well. Moreover, ganguro gals will entertain you with their “Para-Para” dance show. Then, if you come to like the ganguro makeup, there is an option to wear ganguro makeup.

Maybe…maybe a ganguro experience in Shibuya will be a good story from your travel to Japan when you are back home.
