“In a city like Tokyo, kawaii is everywhere”
the quality of being cute, or items that are cute.
Kawaii can be a product, a fashion, a cartoon, a hair style, just so long as it’s uber cute! Kawaii can be a super pink doll dress with ruffles to a loaf of bread with a smiley face.
Kawaii is slowly growing in the UK, with more and more people adopting the kawaii style. Facebook has even added kawaii smileys and emojis to their messaging app.
The word “kawaii” originally comes from the Japanese phrase 顔映し, which literally means a person who is blushing. It is now a much more broader term, meaning something like cute and pretty.
