Lifting the lid on Japan’s underground Chicano culture

I have a new piece out in DAZED, exploring how Japan’s underground is channelling a culture often negatively associated with LA street gangs and Lowrider cars.

Shot on location in Tokyo, Osaka and Hyogo, Chicano is a new documentary from one of my friend’s here in Tokyo. It’s an exploration between the similarities and differences between Chicano culture in America and Japan, and how the scene is not all about gang culture, but has a deep-seated root in family values.
