As promised! Tokyo really pushing it out in all directions and in all styles-I was packing the steel flat fronted jeans to avoid embarrassment. Sadly the lens on my Canon SLR packed in after the first week in town, and took a little while to acquire another, so some of these pics have been taken on a point and shoot and aren’t so impressive, nevertheless- you get the idea…..
Props to Hiroshi-kun. Total legend running our favourite hat shop in Harajuku- C-Plus Headwears. Tom and I dropped a few hundred here and could easily have spanked some more. Go there!
Mega popular Bridgestone single speeds are everywhere.
Guys at W-BASE in Harjuku doing a cracking job on limited edition frames and some BMX’s that your mum wouldn’t buy you.
Managed to catch up to this dude with his mini Masi with matching tyres.
Nuff said. Heaps on show here- special place for the bike indeed. Eishin-kun and I thrashed it from Harajuku to Asakusabashi in under 15 mins, me on a mountain bike with slicks, him on fixie…. I lost count of the traffic laws we broke in the first 2 minutes. Wicked fun!
What do think? Got any pics from your travels in Japan you’d like to share- get in touch!
