new Tokyo Rock Catwalk
Visual Kei Bands Big in Japan

Visual Kei refers to a Japanese pop music movement characterized by eccentric, flamboyant looks, striking make-up, unusual hair styles and elaborate costumes coupled with androgynous aesthetics. Tokyo Rock Catwalk is the first ever book to fully introduce this made-in-Japan pop culture to an overseas audience. Along with stunning full-color pinup pics and photos from some of the most exciting live performances, members of Visual Kei bands and some of their most loyal fans talk about where this phenomenon came from, how it fits into Japanese society, and how the West is waking up to this outrageous movement.
