David Bowie in JAPAN (1947-2016)

Woke up on Monday to a Noa's WhatsApp message "David Bowie died". It was like gut
wrenching. It’s rare to feel such intense collective grief at losing somebody we knew so well,
and not at all. Over the course of six decades, Bowie has become a universal hero;
a schoolboy from Bromley who became a Zeitgeist-setting pop culture icon.
Bowie's music takes main part in our playlist at hibino over the years.
We decided to bring some iconic images from the 'Japan period' of David Bowie and actually the Japanese point of view to Bowie.

From 'Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence', 1983
