Let’s talk about the Showa era (1926-1989), its sub-cultures, fashions, economy and its relations with the world, including a visit to a retro-cool café from that age.
This unique tour involves an occasional visit to a Showa-style café to talk about a highly influential and energetic time in Japanese history: the Showa Era
After the Pacific war ended in 1945, Japan enjoyed an extraordinary and rapid economic growth at a pace of double-digit GDP, and people started following a semi-westernized way of life. Looking back at that time now, the fashions and sub-cultures seem so distinctive and worthy of discussion. By learning of such a transition in Japanese life style, you will feel how unique and, indeed, how lovable Japanese people are.
