Japanese pop culture rules. The nutty hair-dos, goth style, cool music, photo booth arcades and wacky fashions are 100% fawesome and I just can’t get enough. Makes me want a big, steaming bowl of ramen. MMMM…
Now that I’ve sufficiently generalized an entire country’s popular culture (and poorly at that), I must tell you about the sure-to-be awesome J-Pop Summit Festival, happening this Saturday in Japantown’s Peace Plaza. The event is hosted by New People, the kick-ass, three floor store/theater/cafe offering the latest films, art, fashion and retail brands from Japan.
The day-long funstravaganza will offer a Gothic and Lolita fashion show, live painting, awesome bands, a gourmet food court and to top it all off, a Harajuku makeover contest. If this sounds like your idea of a good time (which it should!), do your best Gwen Stefani circa 2004 impression and get schooled on Japanese Cool.
