Directed by: Hideta Takahata, Shuta Tanaka
My rating: 5
Per Japan Film Festival 2015:
The story unfolds in Harajuku, the melting pot of Tokyo and the forefront of popular sub-cultures transmitted everywhere. The lives of many young and dream-filled eccentrics intersect. Teenyboppers, narcissists, tourists, and workers from various countries – cutting-edge filmmaker Shuta Tanaka humorously captures the amalgamation of cultures found in today’s Harajuku in an ensemble cast comedy.
This was a fun flick that brings you into the young hip and happening fashion and food scene of Harajuku in Tokyo.
Also included: some martial arts and sighting of Korean boy band idols from Bee Shuffle
