Showa Retro (昭和レトロ) is a Japanese aesthetic based on the nostalgia for the Showa era, although the aesthetic focuses on post-World War 2 from the 1950s to the 1970s. Its main charm is the overall "unpolished" feeling that most modern era aesthetics are lacking.

Visuals[]

The aesthetic is characterized by a mix of traditional Japanese and Western tastes as a result of foreign popculture rapidly influencing the country in the post-war period. This reflects in the interior design in particular as even ordinary households started replacing typical Japanese furniture such as tatami mats with western designs. There is a heavy focus on primary colors such as red and green as they were easier to produce during that time where printing on garments was not yet common.
