I never got around to posting about this event— better late than never, I guess! Royal-T Cafe, Bubblepunch and Zippercut host a monthly(ish) event called ‘Japanology’. Each month, they pick a topic of focus about one of Japan’s many, and most of the time deviant, subcultures. In September, I attended a movie screening and lecture about Bosozoku, aka biker gangs in Japan!

There was a small photo booth set up with a vintage motorcycle as prop for the models. It was fun hanging out and pretending to be a ‘yanki‘ for the night.

I admit, I use to daydream about joining a Japanese girl biker gang! This was as close as I could get, I guess…
