Tokyo Idols’ Update by Next Subculture Leader, Shinshi Okajima -Vol.1 : What is Subculture? (Part 2)

For the first volume of this series, we’re exploring the meaning of the word “subculture” unique to Japan. In the first part, two experts on the topic, Akio Nakamori and Sayawaka, came to give us their thoughts on comparing and contrasting subculture and otaku culture deeply rooted within it, as well as “the circumstances that brought opposition to otaku culture”, “subculture of the 90s”, and “the period background of otaku and subculture’s existence”. For this second part, we’ll mainly be hearing from Mr. Sayawaka on topics such as “the difference between otaku and subculture” and “the way subculture functions as a word to ridicule”.
