Terrific Tokyo Toy Tour (with Tim)!
The day started at Thrash Out where Kiyoka, Tim, and I talked toys a bit. We then head over to Ichiban Boshi, a nearby soft vinyl shop, and Nakano Broadway. We spent a good two hours in Nakano, mostly checking out the Mandarake stores, when we accidentally bumped into Joe Ledbetter, who was in town for his Creature Comforts show at Stitch Tokyo. From there, we all head over to Akihabara and the new Mandarake store which just opened. The day ended with a visit to the 101 Tokyo Contemporary Arts Fair, where Tim was displaying some of his work at the Iguapop Gallery booth. A pretty long, but very exciting day. Our feet were all pretty tired.
