So I was surfing YouTube last night and noticed a featured Asian clip that looked pretty interesting, so I clicked on it. Once it started playing, I could tell that it was a music video, but I really had no idea what was in store.
Turns out, this is a video of Yazima Beauty Salon’s latest single, titled “Hamaguri Bomber” (I think). Keep reading to check out the video and the information that I found out about this j-pop music band.
The group is made up of DJ Ozma and the duo Tunnels who play three characters named Margaret Camelia Yazima, Naomi Camelia Yazima and Strawberry Camelia Yazima. They perform in drag as characters that were “discovered” in Las Vegas. Here’s the video:
Based on the research that I conducted, I can’t tell if these guys are actually transvestites or have just found a cool novelty that is fun for them. If you know more about this group, please leave the info in your comment, I’d love to know more about them.
I do suspect that the Japanese are more tolerant of crossdressing in general because of the different television shows I’ve seen on the internet. By the way, do you know what crossdressers are called in Japan? I’ve heard the term ladyboy but I’m not sure if that’s derogatory or not. Here’s another one of their music videos:
In any case, it was very cool happening upon this Japanese pop group, they look like they are having an absolute blast doing this and the music’s pretty good too. I hope to see more from them in the future.
