Male Homosexuality
and Popular Culture
in Modern Japan
Mark McLelland

  • There has recently been much discussion in the field of lesbian and gay studies about Dennis Altman's theory of 'global queering' which outlines the influence of the Civil Rights' Movement in the US and Europe on the development of lesbian and gay 'identities' which then, through the 'globalising' influence of post-industrial wage-based economies, consumerism, the mass media and tourism, in turn begin to affect indigenous understandings of homosexuality in societies where traditionally there has been no notion of a personal identity founded on the gender of sexual object choice. In this theory, the US is often assumed to be somehow in advance of the rest of the world and the models pioneered in that country for increasing the social space accorded to lesbian and gay lives are generalised as suitable models for lesbians and gay men in other countries to adopt.
  • Japan, as the world's only fully 'modernised' non-western culture, is an important testing ground for Altman's theory. To what extent have indigenous Japanese understandings of same-sex desire, fashioned in a religious and political climate quite different from that in western countries, been influenced by western models of lesbian and gay identity? Until recently, it was impossible to answer this question for, even five years ago, there was practically no information available in English about homosexuality in modern Japan and there was only one book and a handful of academic papers concerning Japan's well-attested historical tradition of male homosexuality.

    This page is an introduction to the Japanese culture, predominantly relating to Japanese festivals that the country celebrates. How many I 's do you have? How many ... Wie viele Ichs hat das Japanische? and Wie viele Dus hat das Japanische? Japanese Numbers Japanese numbers are probably the same with Chinese ones. But every numbers has more than two pronunciations. Japanese Month Names The Japanese usually refer to the months by numbers, though each month has its own particular name. Japanese letters The Japanese use Chinese letters in their alphabet, since they discovered that it was a more convenient way to express their traditional words, as well as European ones. Using this foreign, Chinese invention and arranging it to serve themselves is just one of the peculiarities of Japanese culture. How to write english Name with "katakana" I got a request of telling the way of transcripting english Name in japanese letters. "Richard" as . I wrote a page here although it may be incomplete with several confusions. ROHMA JI

    33. Brief History
    A brief overview of the history of tattooing in japan and the culture surrounding the art. The article is written by Keibunsha, The japanese Tattoo Institute.
    Brief History of the Japanese Tattoo A s the power of the common people and working classes of Japan grew in the latter half of the Edo period (circa 18th century) horimono, or traditional Japanese tattoos, began to flourish as art form. Using images from traditional water colour paintings, woodcuts and picture books of the time as designs, the ultimate reward for the patience and endurance of pain would be a tattoo of immense beauty. To experience and enjoy Japanese horimono tattoos it is important to understand their history and background, and it is also important to continue to preserve the traditions behind them. The origins of traditional Japanese tattoos can be traced back to the latter years of the Edo period in Japanese history.
    In 1603, the then ruler of Japan, Tokugawa Ieyasu, centralised his shogunate government in Edo, what is now Tokyo. In the 200 years following this, the established feudal system began to stagnate, and in opposition to the martial upper classes, the common people of Edo began to develop their own separate, unique culture for themselves. Rejecting the centuries-old strict ethics and morality of the Confucian beliefs of the samurai and taking up themes based on duty, ninjo (human experiences and feeling), fashion and comedy the townspeople of Edo increasingly began to enjoy novels, drama, comic tanka songs and theatre. Books such as kokusenyagassen by Chikamatsu Monzaemon, Honchohsuikohden and Satomihakkenden by Takisawa Bakin and many other publications, along with picture books and artwork all combined to develop into a system that became a massive outlet of cultural expression for the ordinary people of Edo.

    Origami ... Modern Literature Calendar Festivals Annual Events Four Seasons Costume Kimono Footwear The Basics Popular Dishes ... Alcohol Search: Topsites Japan For many people, the mention of Japan conjours up images of weird masks and extravagantly made-up actors twirling red umbrellas on a stage and elegant, kimono-clad ladies demurely pouring cups of tea in tranquil cherry-blossomed temples. Well, even today you can still experience all that kind of stuff, if you know where to look. The traditional arts in Japan are exactly that - traditional. Solemn awareness of the history and intimate knowledge of the past-masters of your chosen form of torture, sorry, expression are essential if you wish to practice at the highest level. These ancient 'ways' are not for the faint of heart, but many foreigners come to Japan each year to enlighten themselves through their study. For the rest of us, just a nibble at this great banquet of culture will be more than enough. But the Japanese do know how to kick back and have fun, too. You might be surprised by just how wild a Japanese festival can get! Snow festivals, fire festivals, fertility festivals - you name it, they have it. When it comes to food, the Japanese are as enthusiastic as anybody on earth. And the changing seasons bring new delicacies. Spring also brings the cherry blossoms - symbol of life's all-too-brief span and a good excuse to get drunk and dance around in a cemetery! The beauty of summer fireworks and autumn's spectacular changing leaves can also take the breath away.
