A Lolita fashion contest was held in Shimotsuma, Ibaraki Prefecture, as a means of promoting the city, northeast of Tokyo, where the 2004 movie “Kamikaze Girls” was shot.

The movie, released in Japan under the title “Shimotsuma Monogatari (下妻物語/Shimotsuma Story)” features heroine Momoko Ryugasaki, played by actress Kyoko Fukada (深田恭子), who dresses in Baby, The Stars Shine Bright.
