Kawaii, most commonly translated as “cute.” It's a concept that seems to encapsulate so much more than that: from the fashionable streets of Harajuku to the big-eyed mascots that watch over Tokyo's wards, it's practically inescapable.
Kawaii things are usually soft, bright, round and small. They aren’t aggressive or belligerent, they give you peace of mind and a sense of security. The physical attributes considered kawaii are basically those that coincide with childlike features.
