KERA Magazine is a popular Japanese punk fashion magazine. Originally known as KERAOUAC Magazine, the name has become synonymous in recent years with the rise in punk, Lolita, and gothic fashion trends in both Japan and international communities.
The first issue of KERA was circulated in October of 1998 with a strong focus on punk fashion and current trends in rock music. The magazine was among the first to include a section with photographs of the street fashion in Harajuku with Harajuku Street Snaps. The street snaps section also covered fashion on the streets of London, Berlin, New York, and other districts of Tokyo. While at first a bimonthly publication, KERA has since become a monthly magazine with a circulation well over 120,000.
