S1E7: Subculture Mania

Anyone with an interest in Japan will definitely have seen pictures online of all the weird and wonderful fashion out here: from girls dressed like 18th century toddlers to guys that look like they walked right off the set of the musical Grease.

In this episode of Nihongo Master podcast, we talk about the weird and wild Subcultures of Japan!  Anyone with an interest in Japan will definitely have seen pictures online of all the weird and wonderful fashion out here: from girls dressed like 18th century toddlers to guys that look like they walked right off the set of the musical Grease. Contrast that with the sea of business suits you’ll see in every train station during rush hour, and it’s easy to see why their eccentricity stands out so much.

Podcast host Azra says, “The more conservative the culture, the weirder and wilder kinds of nonconformism you’ll find on its fringes.”
We’ll look at five different unique subcultures to find out who they are, where they came from, and what they wear. Expect the usual suspects like biker teens and the Harajuku Girls, but also a few which might be totally new to you.
