Yamamba ('black face') style, Tokyo, 2002

Tragically, the kogal (black face) or more extreme yamamba (ogress) look once ubiquitous on the streets of Shibuya is now a rare and archaic sight. These three wonderful examples were photographed waiting for the first trains home after a night out their favourite club in October 2002.
