Director Mark L. Lester modeled this police action drama on the Hong Kong style, guaranteeing plenty of over-the-top action sequences. Dolph Lundgren stars as police detective Chris Kenner, an American raised in Japan. He is given a new partner, Johnny Murata (Brandon Lee, making his Hollywood debut), a Japanese raised in America. The two are made for each other – Chris doesn't appreciate American culture, while Johnny doesn't much like Japanese culture. One thing they both enjoy are the martial arts, of which they are experts. The two are assigned to L.A.'s Little Tokyo, trying to nab the notorious Yoshida (Carey-Hiroyuki Tagawa), a drug manufacturer using a local brewery as his distribution center. Yoshida, a member of the Yakuza, has brought the residents of Little Tokyo to their knees. But Chris has personal reasons for wanting to get Yoshida – as a child he witnessed Yoshida murdering his parents. When Yoshida rapes and kidnaps Minako (Tia Carrere), a beautiful lounge singer, it's the last straw and Chris and Johnny set out for Yoshida's heavily guarded home for a big showdown.

In truth, most will be unaware of the vibrancy of the Japanese "neo-mod" scene, an apparently thriving collection of (mostly Tokyo-based) bands paying tributes to the classic sounds of the 1960s. Thankfully, this compilation from Acid Jazz is the perfect introduction, showcasing the garage-rock, Small Faces and Who-influenced sounds being pushed forwards by the likes of Shotgun Runners, The Furs, The Hair, and The Crawlin' Kingsnakes. While some of the English vocals have a distinctive Japanese lilt, otherwise this material could have been recorded in Kilbun, circa 1965. Loud, energetic and blessed with more than a frisson of excitement, Swinging Japan is an enjoyable eye-opener for those with a love of mod culture.

We Are Not Garbage!: The Homeless Movement in Tokyo, 1994-2002

We Are Not Garbage!: The Homeless Movement in Tokyo, 1994-2002 (East Asia: History, Politics, Sociology and Culture) by Miki Hasegawa
Routledge; 1 edition | April 26, 2006 | English | ISBN: 0415976936 | 208 pages | PDF | 1 MB

This book offers a full history of a homeless movement in Tokyo that lasted nearly a decade. It shows how homeless people and their external supporters in the city combined their scarce resources to generate and sustain the movement. The study advocates a more nuanced analysis of movement gains to appreciate how poor people can benefit by acting collectively. It also draws attention to potential difficulties faced by lower-stratum movements aided by external allies. In particular, the study highlights how actions of the state can undermine the relations between aggrieved allies in such a way as to limit gains.
