Tokyo Metro is so much more than a functional means to go from Point A to Point B. On “de-training,” I was briefly blinded by this fountain of damaged and teased (men’s) hair. It amazes me to think how much time he devotes to this personal sculpture, without a doubt to impress the ladies. When I recovered, and stepped back, I was equally impressed with his incredibly girlie, flouncy blouse.
What is hotter than a white suit and a fountain of jet black hair shooting high and spilling low? Nothing! This couple looks very much in love, and there’s a bonus third skinny guy.
Kabukicho is now full of ads for this new (?) host club called Smappa!, which seems a blatant rip-off of SMAP, the boy band now entering middle-age. The Smappa ad for Shun-kun above hilariously promises 夜のロハス, night-time lohas.
Lohas means Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability, and applies to a 30 something female demographic. What has made hairspray and men’s make-up sustainable? I think actually, like the club name, it is a blatant attempt to connect with larger pop culture themes (like a bad porn title that mimics a Hollywood blockbuster).
From their incredibly complete Smappa! website, I have borrowed these staff images. Scroll to the bottom to see their onsen/ryoukan holiday. These boys are well-documented. Check their Smappa website for more!
