WHAT I'VE SEEN IN TOKYO THIS WEEK

  1. Aging Harajuku girls.
    15 years later...
  2. The new Converse White Atelier shop
  3. The Greatest Show on Earth
    Robot Restaurant 3rd Anniversary. Best $50 spent.
  4. Secret bar
    Japan is the land of treasure hunts and secret spots. Walk into a subway station, find Jiro. Stumble into an underground cave and find the coolest clothing boutique (Loveless). This bar is a tiny room that fits an elderly Japanese man, his thousands of records, two turntables, and space for a few guests. You can disappear your night here, easy.
  5. The skyline pt. 1
  6. The skyline pt. 2
    The layout of Los Angeles. The density of New York.
  7. Tradition
    Having lived here for a bit, Japanese life can be frustrating, maddening at times, when it comes to culture clash. But then you consider the age-old customs, rituals, and deference, and you wish it was like this everywhere else in the world.
