Japan, How It Is - Halloween in Shibuya (Videos)



I was in Shibuya on Halloween Night on my way back from a shoot in Tochigi and I happened to have all my kit with me at the craziest street gathering of the year... SO I shot it.

Part 1 (above) is the quick version to The Living's epic music and part 2 (below is a thirty minute taste of what it's actually like to be in the thick of the beautiful madness that is Tokyo's largest halloween street gathering (impromptu party).

It was a blast. Were my father not visiting at the time I'd have also dressed up and joined the fray... but thats what next year is for I suppose.

Random Japan Phone Snaps #4 ランダム携帯で撮った写真

Sometimes I snap things with my phone that I only ever use once or intend to use in the future but never do. They gradually build up till I drag them all off my phone into a dump folder, where would usually spend the rest of their digital eternities...

Until now.


Enjoy these random images of random times in random Japan.

Shibuya's Iconic Hachiko statue Desecrated!!!



In Shibuya yesterday I passed the Hachiko statue and it had been desecrated in the most garish, disgusting way. Taking this iconic statue and defacing it with plastic and fluff, reducing it to the level of Tokyo's endless supply of plastic faced, fluff-for-brains fashionistas.


That vacant stare of the fashion model in the poster, are lenses into the vast void that resides behind every fashionista's makeup. Soulless meat mannequins and their endless consumption of useless garbage, reducing one of the few real, true and meaningful, timeless things in Shibuya to yet another split second fong-kong, plastic throw-away novelty.
