Japan: Characters and Conformity

Categories: East Asia, Japan

Andy Gray has been visiting Tokyo's Yoyogi Park and chronicling the characters he finds there on his charming photoblog Japanwindow [1]. This week he puts up pictures of the 50s boy-gang wannabe Rockabilly guys [2], a group of joyful African-inspired drummers [3] and hillbilly jug band Tokyo Limelight Circus [4]. Marie Mockett at Japundit compares U.S. and Japanese teenage conformity [5] and reflects on the social stereotypes of both countries.
