Lately, I’ve been experiencing difficulty focusing my eyes. My world is starting to look more and more like this… On the bright side, it is so much easier to be a perfectionist when you cannot see tiny little details. Not to mention, people around me suddenly became much more likeable and attractive.
I was keeping quiet for the last several weeks since I was busy working on my projects. The preparations for “Tokyo Men: More Than Salarymen” exhibition also took some time. The exhibition launched on Saturday and finished today, Sunday. It is just two days. But I was still very happy. It feels great to show […]
There is no single way to be a man. Different cultures, different times, different people define manhood in different terms.

However, this view gives a good idea how Tokyo Tower fits urban landscape. One konbini beer later I was near the Daimon […]
