Japanese hip-hop dance is said to have begun when Hiroshi Fujiwara (藤原ヒロシ)returned to Japan and started playing hip hop records in the early 1980s.Fujiwara is known as the godfather of Harajuku culture and is a globally influential streetwear designer, including being the pioneer for Nike’s “HTM” line, and the “Fenom” line for Levis.

Eri Yamada (山田恵理), student of Vantan Design Institute, loves hip-hop, and has been dancing for 6 years.

“I get bored with most things really easily, but I’ve never gotten bored doing dance. Through dancing I learn efforts will be rewarded.”Yamada said.

This year, Japanese education guidelines require all seventh- and eighth-grade students to take hip-hop dance classes as part of their physical education curriculum.

Japanese teachers take on hip-hop.


私の趣味はダンスです。今年で6年目で、ジャンルはHiphop,JazzHiphop,Jazzです。飽きっぽい性格の私ですがダンスだけはやめられないほど必要不可欠なものです。ダンスを通して、上へ上へ上り詰める向上心を育て、努力をすれば何か必ず報われるということを学びました。 (By山田恵理)
