Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the Tokyo debut of Meeting Modernity. As a little fun giveaway, I designed and made a bunch of sets of Néojaponisme buttons for opening attendees. If you are interested in procuring a set, feel free to get in touch.

    Hi This is Michael Furmanovsky, author of the rockabilly article in the Japan Times. If you are interested, I can send you the academic article on which it is based. I don’t anything about the street fashion book you mention, but from what you have written it looks like he has not done the kind of research that I have done based on numerous primary sources and interviews. I have since written an article about Watanabe Pro which was just published in Japanese and am now writing one on the eleki boom.
    Thanks for taking the trouble to read and comment on my article

    Chigasaki’s not quite Yokohama, but the next time I’m out that way I’ll give it a visit.
