It’s true that some salarymen wear the boring and cheap clothes, and have poor hygiene. Yet some really out-do themselves in self-presentation. I love the super saturated blues of the Goyard bag and pin stripe-suit, the complementary tones of hair, tan, and shoes. Why is his tongue sticking out slightly in the above photo?

I love this CNNgo story that asks if Shibuya is Japan’s Jersey Shore. BTW, in Japan MTV calls the show, “Macaroni Rascals: The Jersey Shore Life.” Who is more tanned, who has bigger hair, who is more bedazzled, and who is showing off more skin “real estate”? Both geographies hold a special fascination that pairs bad taste with exuberant display.
Update: Or maybe Suma Beach in Kobe is the Kansai Jersey Shore, as Julie in Japan suggests.
