This outfit almost make me lose my mind. The bottom is fairly standard, neon tennis shoes with wings. Above that are stockings that scream Rocky Horror Picture show. The shorts and matching top look like someone robbed grandma’s couch. And there’s so much more. I have to thank this kid for confusing me completely.
Anti-Christ spotted in Koenji with SanTanuki
Underneath a “Wild Layers” wig, in “bitter cinnamon blend” color, a person claiming to be the Anti-Christ was spotted in Koenji. It was Friday, Dec 21, 2012, and the world might have ended that very day according to Mayan prophecy. Instead, he shared a fish sausage with SanTanuki and a sad smile with a restaurant worker after a delicious bowl of Vietnamese soup.
Ever wanted to sit on Santa’s ballz with a drink in your hand? Santanuki party is this Friday in Koenji.
Consider yourself invited! Some friends are organizing this event, and I’ll be there.
Friday, December 21, from 8.30 pm
Koenji Kita 3-1-1, Asahi building 1F

I bought a tie here for $1.25
I love this mash-up of Ronald McDonald and KISS! The store staff was super friendly, and I found a tie for 105 yen. Koenji is the best!
Police pair outside Bluebird hair salon
Even crazy hail does not deter me from a Tokyo anti-nuke demo. Over the next week, I’ll be posting my bonus entertainment from the serious energy issues: admiring a wide variety of uniformed police. There must have been hundreds of uniformed officers on duty, doing nothing.
My favorite of all was this synchronized pair, securing the Bluebird hair salon with the power of their ear pieces. It must be nice to work with a buddy.
Hunky dancer with very tall pole
Strutting with a two meter pole at waist height is an invitation to dream. Are the children too innocent to understand? The white booties and oldie-time undies add something irreplaceable.
Sexy seniors dancing at Koenji’s Awa Odori
The dancing is comical and drunken in appearance. Each group coordinates their outfits, and practices the difficult steps and arm motions. The seniors looked like they were enjoying themselves, and were unequaled in their lascivious abandon.
Sexy hot dog seller at Awa Odori
The appeal of these pork products is self-explanatory, no?
Naked guy encourages booze buying at Koenji’s Awa Odori
Just over a week ago, Koenji had its fantastic Awa Odori festival, and I took many photos of participants, food & booze sellers, & other attendees. I’m going to post them over a few posts and a few days.
This barely legal guy literally has the price of beer scrawled across his naked back. I love the very DIY, un-hemmed red fundoshi he’s sporting, and the brazenness of his pitch. Check out below where this customer is juggling his cigarette, man-bag, and wallet to get boozed up as quickly as possible. This is Japan when it’s not working.
Sexy acrobat in Koenji
This past weekend Koenji hosted a street fair with dozens of performances happening outside the station and along the shopping streets. It’s called Bikkuri Daidogei, or Surprising Street Performance Festival. Since it was a performance, I took the opportunity to admire this sexy acrobat. The neediness of street performers, craving public attention, certainly draws me in. Plus, I love creative makeup.
