KAWAII, an internationally celebrated word from Japan
The colorful pop culture born from unique Japanese culture: fashion, music, anime, games,
characters, and cosmetics, has become quite the boom around the world. Many
refer to all of them as “KAWAII.” This keyword is often used to used to comment on style and fashion and has now become part of the daily vernacular of the youth culture of many countries. Furthermore, the Harajuku, Akihabara, and Shibuya districts of Tokyo are regarded as the birthplaces of KAWAII culture, and the world’s fashion industry keeps a close watch to catch the latest designs coming out from a range of edgy designers based in these areas.
Main Purpose of HARAJUKU KAWAii!! produced by (talent agency based in Harajuku) ASOBISYSTEM (a talent agency based in Harajuku), is to “create culture rather than trends,” and endeavor to support and nurture unique content that born in the heart of Harajuku such as music, fashion, and life-style. Today, “Harajuku culture” has evolved into “KAWAII Culture” and has gained global momentum crossing borders and further diversifying. To evolve beyond a short-lived trend, we and the organizers of J-POP Summit look to continue to support, promote and diversify Japanese culture, and help create local content in each country. Ultimately, we hope to see new forms of pop culture take root and evolve around the world.
