Himba girl going to Japan

Himba people in Namibia are well known for their traditional clothing, hairstyle, jewellery and otjize paste, a cosmetic mixture of butter fat and ochre pigment, which gives their skin and hair the signature reddish brown colour.

ナミビア北部に住むヒンバ族は昔ながらの服装、ヘアスタイル、装飾品、それに赤茶色の皮膚と髪で有名。オークルとバター脂肪を混ぜたペーストを体中に塗るため、赤茶色になります。
