    Going to Japan

    Discussion started by Gunm - Sep 23, 2005

    So i decided to take all the money i saved up working my shitty college job and take a trip with it to Japan, Hong Kong and China.
    Unilke last time where I kept frittering away my cash for the trip, this time I got every last cent and sank it in towards one bad ass trip package. I leave oct 2nd and get back on the 17th. I promise one hell of a photo thread when i return.

    Now, I need to know where a guy can go in Tokyo and Hirajuku for the following....

    1) Shops for the illy impossible-to-find-stateside shoes (Most importantly the Doze Green special editions that just came out)

    2) Where do i go to see all the hot MSK action? Are there particular alleyways to go to see the who's who of graffiti?

    3) Places to eat?

    4) Cool stores?

    Any other advice, suggestions would be appreciated...

    Tokyo

    Hong Kong

    no trip to tokyo would be complete without a run-in with the Yakuza.
    Take a shitload of pictures.

    have fun.

    Not sure mayyyyyyyyyyyyyy-ne....


    "Hot MSK action in an alleyway" seemed pretty straightforward in its gayness.

    Ive heard great things about moss burger, tiny little burgers that are supposed to be super tasty.

    Also, take advantage of your ethnicity if you know what i mean.

    Mos Burger sucks ass. It's like 7 dollars for a shitty small burger.

    It's called Harajuku by the way. Why do you want to go there? It's nothing special, just a bunch of gothic people. There are a couple graffiti stores there though. You can take the train almost anywhere so you'll probably be spending a lot of time on the train.

    Edit: Try to aviod the Seibu Line as often as you can. It's a yellow train, and it takes you to places like shinjuku, but it's usually in the country somewhere.
