About Pleasure in Japan

In the spirit of the Showa era, Japanese men found their rhythm in a trio of indulgences: savoring good drink, embracing the thrill of gambling, and succumbing to the allure of romance. This lively and daring lifestyle, while steeped in hedonism, was a symbol of the era's unspoken masculine code. It whispers to us a timeless mantra, 'To revel is to live. Such is the essence of being a man in Japan.'
