Japan Week brings New York City a Taisho-inspired café. The Taisho era was Japan's Jazz Age. it transfigured the Japanese character. New types arose, enter mobo and moga--modern boy and modern girl respectively. Mobo would be dressed in bell-bottom trousers, a floppy-tie, brightly-colored shirts and round-rimmed spectacles. Moga would give up her kimono in favor of "Western clothes" that accentuated her body. Guys grew out their hair, while girls cut it short. And where did they hang out? In the new European-style cafes, serving coffee, whisky, wine and hot sandwiches.
