Please see the special chapter on Horiren, the First: “The story of a fearless wabori artist who becomes a Buddhist monk.” (p. 128~) featured in Irwin Wong’s book “THE OBSESSED: OTAKU, TRIBES, AND SUBCULTURES OF JAPAN”
Whether it be Cosplay, Rockabilly, HipHop or Gothic: when the Japanese immerse in a subculture, they do it like no other.
With dazzling photography, on-the-ground interviews, and cultural essays, this book showcases a kaleidoscope of scenes and *individuals* drawn from Japan’s many countercultural groups.
