A Day at Chinatown - 10MO8 SHUPPAN x JAPANESE STREETS

130723-7499

On a brooding day in July, 10MO8 SHUPPAN and JAPANESE STREETS went on a fashion trip to Yokohama Chinatown

When we visited Ueno Zoo last year, eight members of KK 10MO8 SHUPPAN managed to make it. This time we had six.

The trip was rudely broken up by a violent thunderstorm that shut down one of the most important train connections between Tokyo and Yokohama. But until the weather interfered, we had enough of a chance to explore Yokohama Chinatown.

Yokohama Chinatown is one of the largest Chinatowns in the world. There are about 250 Chinese themed shops and restaurants in an area that was first populated by Chinese immigrants in 1859. Since the 1970s it has become a major sightseeing spot, and the streets are crowded with tourists.

That was quite insightful! A couple of questions: can one find those nike platform sneakers the man in the Gucci shirt was wearing online? Were you with Aran from the start or did you somehow bump into him along the way? xD – - otherwise that china town is really really huge!

@Kimi: Glad you like this feature. I have asked Li Lium about the NIKE sneakers. Will update you here if I hear anything. We had set up a time and place to meet Aran as he arrived a little later.

@Kimi: Li Lium sent these shoes to Shoe Repair Kanamura, a small business in Chiba Prefecture. They have a special resoling service. It costs JPY 6,500 (USD 66.00) for 3.5 cm, and JPY 8,000 (USD 81.00) for soles over 3.5 cm. Their site is only in Japanese and I doubt that they understand English. Maybe there is a shoe repair service in your region who can do this?

@Kjeld WOW! That’s awesome! Yes, I live in LA. I’m sure there is a service/shop that does that! It would be interesting and different to have a couple of platform sneakers like that! Thanks for the feedback! :D
