UNIFORM | Tokyo Jazz Coffee Shop


Photo of an unidentified youth in a Tokyo jazz coffee shop by Michael Rougier, 1964.

"The girl smoking and brooding in a Tokyo coffee shop represents a problem brought on by the abruptly changing society of Japan since the war. She is part of a phenomenon long familiar in countries of the Western world: a rebellious younger generation breaking from her country's past."—an excerpt from "The Young in Revolt", LIFE Magazine's Japan issue, September 11, 1964.
