Day 2 home from Japan. My boy and I stayed a couple of days after the gang to visit Kyoto, but ended up staying in Tokyo … too much to do and see (and buy!). Man oh man, shopping is definitely the thing in Tokyo and I had fun contributing to the economy :)
Shopping in Harajuku was the most fun and the people there definitely the most colorful. So many photo-ops, but I felt awkward snapping pics of people- though you’ve got to assume that if one is rocking a Little Bo Peep outfit complete with staff one wouldn’t be too averse to a little affectionate attention.
Besides shopping, we walked around a ton, saw lots of different neighborhoods and went nutso with filming for KarmaloopTV. Everything from a dance class led by Junko, the Dance Hall Queen of Japan and a lookbook shoot at Joyrich to interviews with singer Ai (who loves Hellz Bellz!) and the fellows from Undefeated. Check in with KarmaloopTV to see the clips as they get posted. Finally, we (the kloop gang) did a day long shoot with Yasumasa Yonehara, a WeSC activist and, like, theeee photog of cool Tokyo. I’ll let you know where/when those pics become available.
Check out some of my snaps below.
