You probably have heard about male androgyny in Japanese pop culture but this will expose you to the world of women presenting as men, a tradition called “danso.”
Danso—women dressing and performing as men—has been an element of Tokyo girls’ underground culture for years, but with a recent boom in otaku visibility has become more and more popular.
