Weird Japan: Unusual trends that only exist in Japan

Shironuri living art


The art of white, powdery makeup called Shironuri has been singlehandedly revived by a woman who calls herself Minori. While Shironuri itself dates back to the 9th century when it was used by wealthy women as a symbol of status, Minori has brought the trend into the 21st century. She combines the makeup with elaborate outfits and intricate backdrops in order to turn herself into a living work of art.
