On my last and only free day in Tokyo, I decided to do it up BIG.
I hit the Supreme, Stussy, XLarge, and Undefeated stores, spending $0, but enjoying the sights.
I then embarked upon the rest of Harajuku, which MUST be the fashion mecca of Tokyo. Store upon store, this is where Sex & the City Tokyo would take place.
Venturing into the fashion world myself, as well as trying to avoid all Soulja Boyisms, one brand name I hear over and over again is A Bathing Ape (BAPE). Knowing that Japan is the birthplace of this pricey spectacle, I decided to hit one of their flagship stores. When I first arrived at BAPE in Harajuku, there was a line around the block to get into the store!!! Of course, they were only letting in 1.5 people at a time, but people were waiting anyway.
However, while I was across the street, when I pulled out my camera to take a picture of the line and the store-front, a BAPE employee appeared out of nowhere telling me that I cannot take pictures. SMH…….somebody told him WRONG!
Though I had already decided not to enter the store, upon this warning, when Maki and Tokirin suggested we return, I was GAME. We ventured back later on in the day. I took pictures outside, inside, I even shot video.
Why aren’t I posting those pictures? BAPE patrol. The Blawk Hawk-like chopper flew in, and to keep a long story short, I’ve said too much due to pending litigation. I kid. Maybe.
And then, it was on to the mission of the day: OPERATION SNOOPY.
