The self-consciousness of an untraditional, traditional kimono, selfie?
Or at least a fake Louis Vuitton construction worker outfit.
With the nights drawing in and winter well on its way, what could be better than retreating to this incredibly tiny, but at the same time wonderfully cosy, little Tokyo bar?
A cliched scene for sure. Arguably almost too traditionally Japanese to be true as well. But at the same time it is, without a doubt, really quite beautiful.
For a country obsessed with rules and regulations, Japan is oddly relaxed when it comes to hygiene standards — or at least it is in regards the capital’s countless, and wonderfully comfortable, little bars and eateries. Places where cooking areas often seem as old as the septuagenarians using them, and buckets even make do as a bathrooms. And yet even those elements could arguably be deemed as minor concerns when compared to this lamp. A device that is now almost more artefact than implement.
