Wax Wane On Japanese Ivy


As a follow-up to our interview with “Take Ivy” author Toshiyuki Kurosu, here’s a post we discovered recently on a blog called Wax Wane. It features some photos we hadn’t seen before of Japanese Ivy enthusiasts in the ’60s, as well as some magazine covers such as the one above, and some of those cute little Japanese cartoon characters.

The post also references a LIFE article from 1964, “Teenage Wasteland. Japanese Youth In Revolt.” The photographer, Michael Rougier, on assignment in Tokyo, is pictured below looking vaguely like Robert De Niro. — CC

    I don’t give a toss about “Japanese Ivy.” Never have, never will. Is there something wrong with me?
