Wow, lol! Ok, well I can accept that. It's a nice place though, Kojima that is. We ate at Chikurin, after much searching... Delicious lunch.

Maybe I was just jaded due to the very limited time that I got at The Works yesterday (High winds delayed all trains from Kansai international)... Even though upon entering, Madoka kindly pointed out to me "I think you already have most of this stuff.....", lol!

Still a great trip, and already asking if it's okay to trek back from Okinawa for this meet up next month.

I think I read somewhere that you only should go to Jeans Street on the weekend.

Maybe me and the gf will hit the Tokyo leg of this trip... There are a few leather brands in the Tokyo area that I want to see, namely Tenjin Works and Highlarge Leathers... And LOTS of epic second hand shops to hit! Then round it out with bar hopping, and crazy nights in Roppongi. Hmmmmm

well yeah. i can attest to going to jeans street on weekends.. was there on a tuesday in jan because i was meeting up with sarina at IH. not much of the jeans street stores were open, and to top it off, momotaro, the usual ones that stay open on weekdays was closed for employee training the day i was there..

that said, there's still a couple kapital stores not far from IH that will be open..

Expect me to know that sort of info?  I'll be able to answer after I leave......

Probably won't know this either BUT do you recall the name of the bar we frequented last May?

If I recall correctly @Danny RnH was the one who stumbled upon it the November before... Maybe... With the wall of records behind the bar.

Another question you may not know the answer to... I am a slow learner...

Have you decided on a day/s you will be attending CC Show, @Giles?

I have to be on Tokyo every day that the show is on, so I'm really struggling to work out when I will be there.  I need to do some juggling of meetings to free some time up.....
