Leopard print and loitering outside Kabukicho Donki’s



If you’re going to loiter on the edge of Kabuckicho, might as well be in front of Donki, which is short for Don Quijote (my apologies, Spaniards!). The store’s claustrophobic with its narrow aisles packed with odd merch. Fortunately, you can experience most of it from the sidewalk!

Flaming across Shinjuku Dori

This flaming outfit crossing Shinjuku’s widest boulevard had me dumb-struck. How is it possible to be *this* gay in Tokyo? Although many hetero Tokyo outfits can easily pass as trannie by USA standards, this early summer outfit is over the top: starting with the fur-topped short booties, the leopard print hand-bag, the large fried hair, and the certain swagger.
