Following on from our 16 page Bosozuku insert in Dice issue 53 here is some info about the girls who are very much intrenched in the Bosozuku lifestyle. Bosozuku ('violent run
tribe') consists of biker gangs which rebel against the strict rules of
Japanese cultural in favour of a life on the road. Also
known as the 'kaminari zoku' (thunder tribes) when it began in the
1950s, the group focuses on disrupting traffic in any way possible
including running red lights, driving recklessly including speeding and
traffic weaving, illegally modifying their bikes and ignoring noise
are traditionally characterised by their modified motorcycles which
often include elements from American choppers and British café racer
style bikes, as well as their elaborate costumes. Typically, traditional outfits
resemble kamikaze or samurai style jumpsuits, with gang names, mottos
and defining symbols and pictures embellished on the back. Otherwise,
retro pilot boots, long overcoats and matching pants style which were a
custom of the 70s Bosozoku fashion, derived from a combination of old
kamikaze and US Navy uniforms. The Bosozoku girls bring their own style to gang fashion, however. Long, multi coloured, pointed nails,
bright pink and red bikes adorned with stickers and painted pictures
while still maintaining luscious long shiny hair, glossed lips and the
typical tattoo. The women of
these Japanese gangs say they are breaking away from gender stereotypes
by challenging the domestic roles expected of women in modern Japan. In their own words, they are all about proving that 'Japanese women can wipe their own ass’. Many
of the female members were introduced to the gang culture from ex
partners before deciding they wanted to ride as well. The gang’s
activities are focused on road disruptions but they have also been linked to gang violence. The girls are also out to prove that
the subculture is not a dying one, despite Japanese National Police
Agency reports stating that the number of recognized Bosozoku members
nationwide, hit a record low of 7,297 in 2012. This is down from the recorded 42,500 members at the subculture’s peak in 1982. The
reduction in member numbers is considered to be a result of a police
crackdown and subsequent road traffic law revisions in 2004, which gave
more power to police. The 15th generation gang uniforms are passed down from rider to rider
and can not be washed, according to gang law. Just wearing a uniform can
get you arrested in Japan.
