Japanese Freeters: The Changing Attitudes of Youth
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, I look at the various Japanese viewpoints and opinions concerning "Freeters;" atypical workers in Japanese society. My research consists mostly of firsthand accounts and opinions, gathered through interviews, blogs, and surveys, all from the perspective of both freeters and non-freeers. I also consider to what extent the "Westernization" of Japan has influenced this phenomenon and the overall implications of the changing views of Japanese youth.
