Gal culture flourished in Shibuya at the end of 20th century. In the late 1990s, young girls filled Shibuya’s Centre Gai Street and began reating a unique cultural movement that would eventually spread throughout Japan. People came from all over the country to gather in Shibuya, having long dreamt of dressing themselves in the latest outfits from Shibuya 109. This book presents the vivid scenes that unfolded in Shibuya in 1999.
