It turns out my hotel in Osaka will be pretty close to the IH store. Is it worth going over there for a guy who needs XL or XXL in tops? Wanna take a look at the new UHF offerings but I need XXL's in those and I wonder if they'd even stock that size...

It's worth to go there, just to say hello to Kenta, who is a cool guy and speaks English... No idea about the size range, but I know the store is pretty small and they stock only one of each size, on most IH items, if I got Kenta right...

I think you'll be shit out of luck if you want XXL. 

XL will be fine.

Successful visit today. I think I met Kenta who is super sweet. He hooked me up with a few shirts in xl and xxl (you just have to ask about those sizes they are in the back). Also got an awesome patch and black chambray shopping bag.

Also everyone in Osaka is like "how did you get here?" We have been the only westerners in all the beer bars we've seeked out. They're all from this Osaka craft beer crawl thing I found in the New York Times. But I don't thing any of these places know they got written up.

The IH store has also been he only place we've heard like metal or heavy music in Japan.

No unfortunately not. Very little English in osaka and it didn't seem super accessible.

I wish I had grilled Kenta about places to hang here but was trying not to be an American jerk (we can't help it obvs). He did really want to know where I scored my IH shirt/pants.
