That means I'm back from Japan.
This past trip makes eleven times I've been over there if you're keeping track, it's safe to say that it's my go-to destination as far as vacation time goes.
Shit never gets old, there's always some crazy shit to see there.
Although the main focus of this one week stay in Tokyo was to visit my girl, I still managed to skate a couple of times, in fact the first time was pretty much straight off the plane when I got there.
I landed at Narita at 12 noon, my man Masa and his lady Miko picked me up at Shinjuku Station at 2:45, and we were in Yokohama at the Inter Style trade show an hour after that.
I had no idea that there was a trade show going on that day, and that there was a mini ramp and little street area inside the place.
I was like your boy Marvo and I said "LET'S GO..."
Straight to Sunny Yokohama.
Prease forrow instruction of this sign! Yeah right.
Stereo is big in Japan, the dude Hisashi Nakamura is on the international team, peep his board.
Like to party? Me too! Don't give a fuck? Me neither! I feel you guys.
In4mation tees on display.
Mini ramp was fun. Cho tanoshikatta desu!
Hella Japanese pros spotted in there. I grabbed Junnosuke Yonesaka for a pic and he was super nice. Check him out in the past few Cliche' videos, he fucking kills it. Also used to skate for Menace and City Stars back in the day, dude's no lightweight.
My man Venice Nogami from Osaka was there repping his Dorcus Clothing line. Me and this dude know a lot of the same people, and he's on some O.G. pro status in Japan. Check this clip that my man Junji filmed a little while back.
Post-trade show pose.
Headed to the Chinatown area. That's Chukagai for you honkeys.
Masa's sister has a store called Ragga China, I was looking to get the Nitraid DVD that just came out. They had it, I got it. Stoked.
Should have copped this shirt!
Sneaker heads were fiending for these.
Maybe a little big for Masa.
More like Shaq-sized.
Ended the day double-date style.
