rooms 27 - September 2013 Day 1

Sep 11 2013: One of Tokyo’s most important fashion exhibitions, rooms, is taking place again this week. JAPANESE STREETS picked a few favorites

Kimi: Awesome!
Kjeld Duits: @Kimi: It is quite an imaginative and daring project, I thought. How many trade exhibitions would allow something like this. It shows the healthy respect for creativity the organizers have. And yes, we are extremely happy about the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!
Kimi: Wow! Get your portrait drawn by an artist in a bath tub! LOL! Cool event. You must be excited about the Olympics, huh?



Jul 30 2013: On a brooding day in July, 10MO8 SHUPPAN and JAPANESE STREETS went on a fashion trip to Yokohama Chinatown

Kjeld Duits: @Kimi: Good luck!
Kimi: @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
MissMolly: Gorgeous photos! The food looks so delicious too!

Jul 28 2013: The Harajuku Fashion Walk, with deep Japanese roots, is slowly becoming an international event.

Toji Temple Market Overwhelms Your Senses

Jul 23 2013: Kyoto has some of the best antique and flea markets in Japan. One of the most fascinating ones is the Toji Temple Market

Kjeld Duits: @Zjonni: She was so cute, I could have watched her for hours. I’m sure she’ll be an awesome photo journalist one day! ^_-
Zjonni: Oh my goodness everything is so amazing and beautiful! :0 I would spend hours trying to see everything! And I love that cute little girl in the red hat with her little camera C: She might be a photo journalist one day!
Kjeld Duits: @Stef: Until last Sunday I never had to stay in Kyoto, because I lived nearby, so I’m afraid I can’t really recommend any place. But it is quite easy to find reliable information on the net about lodgings in Kyoto.

Wonderful Japanese Antiques, Hidden Away at Yoyogi Park

Jun 30 2013: Find something old and special—or new and artsy—at Yoyogi Oedo Antique Fair, held monthly at Tokyo’s Yoyogi Park

maya smith: Love that purple-ish boots. It would look great w/ a bootcut jeans. You can never go wrong the boot-and-bootcut-jeans tandem.
Carrott: OMG, OMG, so many treasures!!! Those fabrics, which could I re-make, a and old teddies bears, and monkeys – I would foster a few! Of course the most fatigued ones.. :D I remember flea market in Amsterdam, when I used to live there, now I live in small town in UK and the only opportunity to find something like that is Sunday car-boot, but – unfortunately – not sooo attractive like a real flea market at all. Don’t mention Japanese one!
mary: thank you!
