im planning a trip to tokyo, for around a month..
flight should be around £500-600 GBP.. ($1000-$1200 USD) thats sorted
im gonna take £1500+ (whatever extra i can raise - thats about $3000) to spend on desirables..
buuut.. the big killer is going to be accomodation.
does anyone know anywhere relatively nice, doesnt have to be to classy, for under £20 ($40) a night??? i really cant do much more than that.. gotta save my money for clothes!!!!
please.. all help would be appreciated..

when you going?
check out anything bape if you rate it - they have a concept store, cafe, baby milo in shibuya and all that jazz.
the supreme store
the pachinko guys - floods of japanese businessmen spend soo much time in the pachinko halls, its incredible.
check out yoyogi park on a sunday for the harajuku girls.
umm... la fabrique in shibuya is a cool lil' place - cafe/restaurant by day, club in the after hours with huuuge visuals
def go along ometesando for crazy architecture and all the designer steelo
if u like cars and tech interiors check out the nissan gallery in ginza
seriously just get lost in the trendy districts and your bound to find something amazing
hope that helps

yeahh.. i heard about the new prada store.. heard its a bit of a spectacle..
i think i've found an appartment/room to rent in harajuku.. yeh!! hope that doesnt fall through..
anyone know where anything relatively 'post-punk' goes down?
im probs gonna be there september/october time, as this money isnt coming as easy as i though... not enough work on for me right now and im already juggling 2 jobs... gonna have to get a third!!
