As Halloween nears, whenever I teach late, I come home to find a different cast of characters galloping triumphant through my house, including Howl’s Moving Castle, pirate vs.
And the background music in our house these past few weeks has been Psy’s “Gangnam Style” with its driving beat and in all its many variations (UC Berkeley Style, Michigan Style, Gundam Style, My Little Pony Style, Umma Style, Lungi Style, Klingon Style, Mitt Romney Style). For several weeks, which is unheard of in internet time, folks have been loving and discussing and parodying Korean rapper Psy’s music video, “Gangnam Style.” With its cool style and critical social commentary and fun dance moves, it is now the most viewed YouTube video ever. However, all alarms went off when I realized that Psy is going to be a huge Halloween costume this year.
Then as the reviews of this year’s most sexist and racist pre-packaged costumes began to pop up, I began to fear that Psy costumes might also add other additional accessories like black bowl-cut wig and buck teeth and taped-up eyes to make sure that he is fully “Oriental-ized” (sic). So now I am knee-deep in monitoring this year’s crop of “Sexy” costumes and “Oriental” costumes. However, I am pleased to discover that the courageous “We’re a culture, not a costume” poster series out of Ohio University in Athens are back again this year. I love Halloween, all fun and candy, imagination and creativity, but I would challenge folks to be more creative and not assault others with tired old stereotypes.

Iconic landmarks such as the Kintai-kyo bridge, built in 1673, and the Great Buddha of Kamakura, first constructed in 1252, appear much the same at the beginning of the 20th Century as they do today. But while the monuments themselves may look unchanged, the surroundings are now packed with tourists and often surrounded by skyscrapers to house the ever-growing population which has more than doubled from 49,852,000 in 1910 to 128,056,026 in 2010.

It was only when Commodore Matthew Perry of the United States Navy steamed into the bay in Yokohama with four warships - the Mississippi, Plymouth, Saratoga, and Susquehanna - in 1853 that the channels of communication were forced open.

I love what Asian Americans in particular have been doing with “Gangnam Style,” although I am also wary that some of its crazy popularity might rub a little too close for comfort to laughable Asian male stereotypes—is the mainstream laughing at or with Psy? I know Psy does not really look like that, but tired old stereotypes are particularly virulent at Halloween time. But this unique collection of images taken 100 years ago are some of the first ever insights in to rural Japan before it was opened up to the rest of the globe. But as Japan began to catch up with the rest of the world powers, it began to exert its brutal power by declaring war on surrounding countries such as China.This provoked condemnation from the West and tensions with America began to further escalate over its control of Japan's oil resources, eventually leading to Japan's attack on Pearl Harbour and entry in to World War II.
It is a really interesting historical snapshot of Japan and its cities 100 years ago.'It has come to us from a person in the south west who has had the album for a while now. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount.

A raucous combination of cosplay and Halloween, the spirit is festive, the creativity fun, the details impressive.
I am so depressed by the thought of women dressing up as Pho King Hot sexy take-out food containers (with light-up boobs) and bizarre geisha-ninja-prostitute-farmer conflations, even worse when these costumes are on little girls. She team-teaches Asian Pacific American History and the Law at the University of Michigan and University of Michigan Dearborn. The collection of pictures - the first ever used to promote tourism in the country - show geishas relaxing in pleasure gardens while workers pick tea leaves from the fields.

Dance cheesy.” I will be eating leftover Kit Kats and hoping that the only yellowface I encounter at my door this year will be Big Bird, perhaps accompanied by binders full of women or by horses and bayonets. It was around this time that this collection of photos were taken to show off Japan to the outside world, which had previously been rigidly introverted and anti any foreign or outside influence.
Photographer Kozaburo was the first to produce tourist shots for Japan with an album of 51 collotype black and white photographic prints, which were painstakingly inked in by a team of 100 colourists, and gave Europe one of its first glimpses of life inside the previously secretive state.
