This chapter considers the question of young people's proper relation to work and play, which helped shape the approaches to the urban middle classes, first examining the discourse on protecting young workers, which changed along with Japan's educational system during and after the First World War. It also describes the street toughs and professional delinquents, and introduces the concept of the modern girl or moga.
