POGT_top_01.jpg
Girl’s culture in Japan is a multi-faceted entity. Whether it’s popular idol groups like AKB48 or artists aspiring to global notoriety like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, in recent years it’s the women who are leading the way for Japan, both on the world stage and the underground. In this age of Internet media and social webs, just about everyone is familiar with all the networking tools available online, and more and more girls in Japan are taking advantage of these tools, implementing them in their own unique and creative ways.
In [POWER OF GIRLS from TOKYO] asianbeat and MIG (“Made in Girl”) producer, Taguchi Maki, will introduce you to the next generation of Tokyo girls setting the trends in Japan’s girl culture.
Creators, designers, artists, DJs, fashion icons – these are the girls diversifying Japanese pop culture and expanding its global reach.
