My Secret Japanese Lifestyle
As an avid fan of Japanese culture and fashion I often participate in the local Gyaru communities around the world. Bringing you the annual Canada Gyaru: Winter Summit in Toronto and the Gyaru fashion show at Anime North 2016.
During the Canada Gyaru: Winter Summit 2016 we went for a stroll through on The Path in Toronto, the largest underground shopping complex in the world with 4 million sq ft of shops including a photoshoot.
Next, bubble tea at Tea Shop 168, one of the more popular bubble tea shops in Toronto located just north of Dundas Square. For dinner we headed to Kinka Izakaya located on Bathurst & Bloor, in my opinion, the best izakaya in Toronto with an authentic layout and delicious dishes. I ordered their supreme unagi bibimbop bowl and a cold beer.
We ended the evening at BMB karaoke down the street in Korea town. Sadly, there weren't rooms available to hold all of us so we had to split up. Afterwards we said our goodbyes and ended another succesful Canada Gyaru edition in Toronto.
In my opinion; Gyaru is not just fashion or makeup, its pushing the boundaries of street art and Japanese fashion to its limits. The Japanese are often years ahead with fashion and style that's why I love shopping in Tokyo, to usually hunt for the craziest stuff I can find (although lately I've been more conservative).

To watch the 360 VR video above you'll need a pair of 360 VR goggles which you can practically pick up at many promotional stores in big cities for free or for $10 depending on the store, since it is just a piece of plastic and please let me know in the comments below if you'd like me to release more 360 VR videos in the future.
