This research is directed to the study of the manifestations of nipo-Brazilian pop culture associated with Japanese descendant in Brazil and artists from other origins who share the aesthetic of Japanese pop culture. The purpose is to study the development of processes of mediation of culture and information contained in the manifestations of nipo-Brazilian pop culture and the new virtual cultural spaces which manifests itself under the influence of current information technologies and communication. For that, is necessary to understand aspects of Japanese culture and tradition that were brought by immigrants and incorporated and adapted by their descendants in order to form a distinct sense of "Japonesidade" that can be perceived in art manifestations.
