Scanned photos on Thanksgiving. Just finished up subway sounds last night. 'Crowded Train' is a rare study in infrared flash by Ikko Kagari on the practice of 'chikan' (groping women on the train or subway) in Japan. I think it is from the 1980's but not sure. And maybe book title is wrong. Very underground and not easy to find the right info as it varies from source to source. Any Japanese here? What is the present day views of chikan? It looked like the gals were willing participates back in the day. Or were they just too shy to put up a ruckus? Araki made a little book on sex shops of Japan. Vintage stuff. They had a nightclub for practicing chikan in a fake subway car.
