I think it's...interesting to flip through XD. The photobook itself is horribly expensive, and I'm not too much of a fashion manic to spend my money on it.
But everytime I'm at the bookstore I'd look through the book to kill time and amuse myself.
I've never walked through the streets of Japan so I can't compare these people's fashion to anything.
I do want to say that some of the outfits are pretty wacky and out there, and I dislike 40+ year old women donning "cutesy" clothes; it looks sick.
