Today was a public holiday so wherever we decided to go.. it was going to be hectic. Harajuku and Omotesando was so busy! I’m guessing all the countryside people came in to Tokyo for the long weekend to do some shopping. We first headed to Takeshita Street.. and feasted our eyes on the interesting alter […]

As well as being a great place for a picnic there’s a Planetarium, Observatory, Art Gallery and a Japan Open-Air Folk House Museum. After going for a brief walk around the place and […]

I wasted a whole day trying to find a damn coin laundry. I had googled that there was one in the suburb next to me – and it didn’t seem that far but once I entered the winding pathways of the concrete Daikanyama jungle.. well I was screwed. I wasted 3 hours walking around.. passing […]

I headed out to Shimokitazawa – an area that’s quite well known amongst youths for second hand shops, record stores and other little hole in the walls such as cafes.

Thanks to a great long time fan and friend of my music. I got to visit the J-Wave Radio station 81.3FM the biggest in Tokyo.. streaming to over 1 million people at any one time. It was a huge radio station.. with some cool artefacts too. Like a signed surfboard by The Beach Boys. Disco […]

Mission’s, Koenji

Today was a simple day.. I walked for a very short period around Daikanyama, next to Ebisu where I am staying. I just wanted a rest day so I took it easy and set up my apartment ready for the next 2 weeks. I got to Mission’s at Koenji for sound check to find that… […]

Final Day in Osaka

The hotel we stayed at was so nice. It was the biggest hotel room I’ve seen for Japan. I got a suite that had a huge bath tub and bathroom, luggage wardrobe and a huge king sized bed. I enjoyed a face mask and bubble bath courtesy of the hotel too. Haha I really relaxed […]
