Bikini model, Actress, Founder of Bushy Park Bambi Watanabe x Atsushi Fukuda
“BushyPark was launched in September this year, an underwear brand based on a gender-free concept. ”
“I want to know more about LGBTQ.”
“If Japanese boys and girls are struggling with their identities, I was led wanting to change this issue in Japan. In Taiwan, same-sex marriage is okay, so why can’t it be done in Japan?”
“I hear lots of stories from friends in Nichome (Tokyo’s gay district) and I wondered to myself how I could use this platform as someone who has worked in the adult entertainment industry. All of my fans were males, so I chose to focus on underwear.”
