What is Tsurikawa?
Stolen from trains by local young gangsters, also known as bosozoku, the tsurikawas were originally attached to the inside of cars so passengers could slide their wrist through the ring and safely hang their body outside the window.
They quickly became the symbol of reckless youth/bosozoku started to attach them outside heavily modified bikes and cars to show rebellion and disrespect to authority. Nowadays, hardcore Japanese car enthusiasts are still flaunting them to express their freedom.
It’s your turn to uphold the tradition!
