For some reason, I find Japanese modern architecture like traditional houses beside the streets very aesthetically pleasing.

Makes me feel nostalgic too.

Tokyo is alright in itself as a big city, but it's a big city.

You want comfy? Shimo-suwa is superior.

I like how there are so many self contained districts in Tokyo. You’re in an intimate setting but part of a much larger city you can explore if you feel like it

Sounds like it could either be from the late 1980s/early 1990s or from the mid 2010s ngl
What genre would this music be classified as?

Would this music be considered vaporwave? Not familiar with vaporwave but have heard of it being popular as an alt genre tbh

future funk is a derivative of vaporwave... it's basically vaporwave + french house/disco + 1970's-80's japanese city pop
1970's-80's japanese city pop doesn't sound much different than alternative 1980s music from western countries tbh just the lyrics are in japanese instead of english

It's subtle, but it's tapping into that vintage futuristic vibe of 70s-80s Japan, when everyone thought the Japanese economic powerhouse was unstoppable and Japan was going to take over the world. For example, the original of this song has both an American and Japanese version, but the Japanese version is used due to its aesthetics.

Yeah can see how that subtle theme comes up ngl
It's all somewhat culturally revelant to inceldom imo because many people in Japan that shame grass eater and herbivore men wish those men could be hard working, innovative salarymen that could again lead to Japan being an economic powerhouse with ambition instead of stagnation.

Shouldn't be so surprising that Japan and America have a lot of cultural similarities at some points in time after WW2 tbh
Sadly a lot of what is known as Japanese culture today is an artifact of American occupation and the Japanese being beat down after WW2 and not allowed to have an army presence or be too ambitious or show any real show of strength lest they get put back in their alleged place by other foreign powers.

But tbh as artificial as it is the world would be a lot better off if that kind of hands off attitude instead of sabre rattling (like the US, Russia and China and many other nations like India and Pakistan do) was more prevalent.

Yeah, you can also see the choice in source material as a rejection of the trajectory that America degenerated into with rap and over-sexualized illuminati-pop trash in the 90s and onward.

Many rappers lowkey are interested in/obsessed with anime and Japanese culture which is why the artificial post WW2 Japanese culture is also getting corrupted. Hiphop and rap culture is like a virus that homogenizes the culture to the lowest common denominator @BummerDrummer

Oh absolutely. The song in the OP was actually promoted by a rapper (Etika) before he killed himself due to unrelated issues as to what music should sound like, instead of the crap it's turned into. It's why it has 2 million views.

I see. Didn't know Etika was a rapper tbh thought he was just a streamer. Either way the way rap and hiphop culture forcibly assimilates surrounding cultures is very real tbh
And out of people that dislike rap and hiphop notice most of them aren't females and that rap and hiphop is misandrist in a sense that men that are low status are shit on constantly. You don't see that as much in other music genres.
