An excellent article about Japan’s “Jazz” age and its way to a liberate and modern society. Meet mobo, Japan’s modern boy in bell-bottom trousers, floppy tie and colored shirts, and moga, Japan’s modern girl in dresses which accentuate every curve and hollow. Learn the time’s fashionable philosophy of “Dekansho” and inhale some Japanese socialism before Japan makes its way towards militarization and extremism, which finally culminate in Japan’s participation in WW II.
