NHK KAWAII TV VIDEO CLIP: LA CARMINA, BEST TOKYO GOTH CUTE FASHION STORES & CLUBS! CLOSET CHILD ADDRESS, SAGAMI-ONO.
At long last, I’ve uploaded my appearance on NHK Kawaii TV!
Last fall, La Carmina and friends were featured on the popular program, which airs on Japan’s national network. Each show covers cute Tokyo style, trends and people.
Watch the clip above and on Videofy.
Funny story: I insisted that the NHK cameraman shoot me from high angles. Glad I did. Everyone else featured in this episode was shot un-flatteringly from below!
Thanks to all my spooky crew who took part, and made the shoot a success. Here are behind-the-scenes photos, including addresses and access:
Speaking of shops: you know my favorite is Closet Child, purveyors of secondhand Gothic Lolita Punk and Visual Kei goods. Yukiro went to the new Sagami-ono location, and sends us this report:
A lot of people know there’s a Closet Child in Harajuku, Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Yokohama. (See maps, photos and reports in La Carmina’s Tokyo shopping guide.) But most don’t realize there is an excellent once in Kanagawa prefecture, south of Tokyo (30 min on the Odakyu Line).
The Sagami-ono store is divided in two sections.
1) Gothic and Lolita brands like Alice and the Pirates, Algonquins and Moi-meme-moitie
2) Rock and punk labels like Vivianne Westwood and Hysteric Glamour.
They had a lot of brand clothes and jewelry on sale, so it was even cheaper than usual. If you bought three secondhand items, you got another 20% off. We just had to buy a bag each.
I found a pair of Gothic-looking pants from Algonquins and a Medieval top from Ozz On. These are two of my favorite brands since they have outstanding designs and textures.
We really enjoyed the visit and would love to go back soon. Closet Child Sagamiono is located very close to the north exit and not hard to find. Tip: the sign is white, not the usual brown color.

Please take a few minutes to watch my NHK Kawaii TV appearance. Did you enjoy the report on my work as a Goth fashion blogger and coolhunter? Do you agree with my approach towards underground cultures?
