You’d think when faced with the entire gorgeous island of Okinawa I would be on a beach somewhere blorping like a contented lazy seal. But no I’m some sort of gyaru insect and gyaru malls are the bug zapper that draws me in.
Proof that gyaru is everywhere in Japan, gyaru mall chain OPA has one in the main city Naha (那覇オーパ) http://www.opa-club.com/naha/. It’s actually on the main drag is a mix of discount brands and more popular gyaru stores like Egoist and Lip Service. Sadly though it closed this July. I don’t know what the gyaru youth will do now, but I guess the declining youth population had a big deal to do with it in Okinawa. Shucks.
I will miss you Okinawa gyaru mall! I hope Okinawa still has some gyaru stores in it somewhere else!
