JR & Tokyo Metro

What’s the opposite of casual?

The heat cannot stop fashion. Not in Shibuya.

Restaurant architecture draws vision to headless butts

Is this the most moe restaurant in Nakano? The stand-up soba and udon restaurant, with its half curtain, stands across from busy Nakano station. The restaurant design, including the one step up, forces the gaze onto a row of headless butts, as if on stage.

Time to buy your lucky rake, and enjoy Japan’s most beautiful people

The Shinjuku San Chome station of the Tokyo Metro is all dolled up for this year’s Tori no Ichi festival, where you can buy lucky rakes and eat and drink with Tokyo’s most gorgeous people. In a fluke of the lunar calendar, this year there will be 3 events in November: tonight and tomorrow, Nov 14 and 15, and Nov 26 and Nov 27. I’ll try to be there as often as possible.

If you’re in Tokyo, I highly recommend it. Apparently, Asakusa is more traditional. Hanazono shrine in Shinjuku is, I believe, the most gorgeous, power spot in Japan.

Here’s some photos from past years:
