Tokyo is one of the world’s largest urban landscapes but these days many of its trendy citizens are dressing as if they’re heading to the nearest mountain, kitted out in a colorful mix of high-tech jackets, hiking boots and trekking packs.
On any given day, it’s possible to find both men and women layering colorful or patterned tights under shorts or sporty skirts. The look has become so popular with women that it has even spurred a new fashion term: “yama girl” or “mountain girl.” And while some enthusiasts are actually putting the gear to use and heading out of the city, others are just wearing the items around town.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
