内容記述
This paper highlights a recent change in Japanese men and masculinities in\relation to the idea of place, home and domesticity. In Japan, the prevalence of\non-regular employment in the labor market has drastically increased since the\1990s. This has hit younger men in particular, as they fi nd it diffi cult to establish\themselves in line with the existing gender norm of men as breadwinners.\The author examines three types of newly emerging masculinities in Japanese\youth: (1) soshokukei-danshi (literally, herbivorous boys), (2) otaku\(nerds, obsessives) and (3) netouyo (the internet right-wing). Herbivorous\boys, who prefer the home to the public space, present a mirror image of the\corporate warriors of older generations, who focused almost exclusively on\their jobs, rejecting domestic involvement. Otaku place themselves in imaginary\homes either in cyberspace or in commercial maid cafés and are escaping from\a commitment to real others. Netouyo turn to Japan as their home and defend\it by using an exclusionist discourse that targets neighbouring nations and immigrants.\They have some diff erences.\However, lacking vibrant and bodily others is a common feature for these\masculinities. Viewed together, as young Japanese men experience growing distress\about their social standing, it becomes apparent that they are homebound,\seeking a sense of domesticity.
