Red is the special color in Japan. It symbolizes joy, celebration, justice and long life. Red underwear are actually sold in Sugamo ‘Harajuku of elder people’. Senior citizens buy them to wish for longevity.
Speaking of ‘Harajuku of elder people’, just last week real Harajuku, the Mecca of youngsters became like a panic because Lady GAGA appeared here. People who happened to see her tweeted in Twitter, this made things bigger.
When Lady GAGA visited Japan this time, she was colored in green. She said she meant to imply that ‘Japan is safe’ with the color ‘green’ and hoped people around the world come back to Japan.
I really appreciate her support as a Japanese!
