コンパ @ 花団

This is a scene from Ayumi-chan's hometown. This is the izakaya that she used to hang out at with her friends, called 花団 (Hanadan) . The gathering taking place hasn't changed much in ritual since those days. It's called コンパ (konpa) and it involves a group of guys and girls getting together for a sort of group date where they get drunk and act like knuckleheads. This particular izakaya allows the underage kids to get drunk and go crazy. Apparently it's good for business. We were lucky enough to witness this ritual, like looking into a scene from the past. The sound is really what it's all about. Click the image to play...
