Shibuya, a town that supports Japan's Skateboarding Culture
In another blog before, I told you that Shibuya is "a city that creates Japanese subcultures."
Today, many IT and venture companies have expanded into Shibuya, and it is no exaggeration to say that Shibuya is a town that continues to create Japanese subcultures.
In preparation for Halloween, the town of Shibuya has already taken various measures. "Shibuya", which is also a town of the IT industry, has already announced that it will hold "Virtual Shibuya Halloween Festival 2022" to avoid congestion on the day of Halloween.
Currently, due to the corona crisis, work style reform in Japan is progressing further, and the number of people working without going to the office is increasing. However, young people in Tokyo almost always go out to the town of "Shibuya".
It has its own purpose, but in order to skate "skateboarding", which has been rapidly increasing in the number of athletes in Japan in recent years, in search of fashionable goods for skateboarding, Shibuya's There are also young people who flock to skateboard shops.
I think there are many people who wonder, "Is there a connection between that super-city Shibuya and skateboarding?" This time, I will briefly introduce the background and the products of TrendyJapan.net.
Q1. How did the town of Shibuya establish skateboarding culture among young Japanese people?
A1. Shibuya Miyashita Park opened in 1953 and reopened in 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic. From the park, it is said that the establishment of Japanese skateboarding culture began. In fact, Nike sponsored this park for six years from 2011 to 2017, and it is said that skateboarding culture has been established among young Japanese people since then. Today, it has been reborn as a park that is typical of Shibuya, a city that creates subcultures where you can enjoy many kinds of sports, like bouldering and skateboarding, events, fashion, and dining.
By the way, the number of young people in Tokyo who do not use "cars" as a means of transportation is increasing rapidly these days, and it seems that they are using "bicycles" and "scooters" exclusively as one of the means of transportation. Therefore, there is no "parking lot" in this park, but there is a "bicycle parking lot" instead, so please be careful when using it.
Today, there are many skateboard street fashion shops scattered around Shibuya Station and Harajuku. TrendyJapan.net collections inspired by skateboarding and Shibuya will be introduced below today.
You can check and purchase Skateboard and Shibuya Collection from TrendyJapan.net from above.
This time, we would like to introduce two products. First of all, let me introduce the symbol of Shibuya's meeting place, "Hachiko" T-shirt!
This is a T-shirt designed by simply processing a photo of Hachiko taken by the founder himself with Photoshop, and naming it in Japanese kanji as "Shibuya dog" meaning Hachiko, the dog of Shibuya. We currently only sell high quality thin Gildan t-shirts. The perfect item for layering in comfort in winter. Why don't you wear a T-shirt with a cute bee, which is the symbol of Shibuya, Tokyo, and feel like you are walking together?
Next, we would like to introduce a sparky hoodie designed using the founder's favorite unisex hoodie made by Gildan! This design is also based on "pictograms" created in Japan, and the founder made full use of Photoshop to color the pictograms in many different colors and layer them evenly. I designed it with the image of a graffiti sticker that puts letters on the board.
This hoodie has a double-lined hood with a fleece lining, so you can spend a warm winter. In fact, the founder has an allergy to wool, mohair, etc., and cannot wear a sweater in winter, so he has several types of hoodies with brushed lining. Similarly, it is a perfect piece for those who want to wear a hood in winter.
In fact, the subculture created by Shibuya is commonly known as "pop culture", and as the word suggests, the number of young people wearing colorful outfits has increased in the city of Shibuya due to the influence of the corona disaster in the past few years. Considering all possibilities, this collection has everything from chic colors to pop designs, so be sure to check out the Skateboard and Shibuya Inspire Collection!
