Recently I just got back from a Tokyo trip and I saw the most amazing shoes that I think are only available in Japan. I can tell you that in Japan, they carry the most colors available for any brand that you know, be it Nike, Adidas, New Balance or Merrel, they sure paint their shoes like they are gonna be partying in it, I manage to capture some of the pictures of the shoes as I was afraid that some wielding katana samurai will come blazing down the aisle telling me I cant take any photograph in their store, well ok I was stopped at the Nike store, but I manage to sneak a few just before he asked me to stop.
As for the shoes I have not seen any of them on the SEA market, Ok maybe one or two of them I have seen em in retail stores.. but do check out the rest.. They are totally in crazy colors, I believe Japan has always the privilege of being able to wear crazy colors and getting away with it, I was wearing em funky Pink Puma Faas when I was there and I would say I fit right in.
Do you like em Pink Shoes? well I sure do .. Enjoy the Slide show .
I was browsing for sites and places to see in Tokyo when I stumbled upon what Japan considered as a National Treasure, but this treasure is a live one, and his name is Jiro Ono, this chap has been dishing out sushi all his life and now there is a documentary on him alone, I am glad that I have come to know about this person, I hope to get a glimpse of him when I am there, also did you know he was the the only Sushi chef to have gotten a 3 Michelin Star for his humble little restaurant, and by “Little” I mean it can only seat 10 at one go! That’s how small it is and yes Reservations I heard must be at least 1 year in advance.. wait for it …
you no speak Japanese sorry they don’t take your reservations, so doing more research I found out that they currently do take Gaijins reservation.
