This was my first time to Japan, we were the guests of Zac Pac who we had designed a set of Be@rbricks with. Our host Kazuhiro showed us a great time, fed us well and had a busy schedule for Maxx and I. It was a wonderful trip.
Somewhere halfway over the Pacific.. crazy storms brewing down there...
First glimpse of Japan through the fog...
We were staying in Ebisu, and got in pretty late.
Kaz and his boss took us out to eat the first night. Great food. Soo good...
Vending machines everywhere surprised me. You can see them all up and down the streets in some places. I was out really late solo exploring and getting lost the first night. Couldn't sleep. Seemed safer at 3am than any big city I've been in.
I watched a lot of weird TV the next morning.
Maxx coffee. I sampled some strange beverages.
They had pretty good candy. Japanese seem big on their chocolate and they had beautifully designed packaging. Good design everywhere really.
A Maxx sized car.
What are these? I should have tried one, they are cheap.
We met with some apparel stores.
This is a burger from Blacow. One of the best burgers I've tasted. They use Kuroge Wagyu beef also known as Kobe beef. Aw man...
We went to Medicom HQ to see our toys...
The staff at Medicom were awesome!
We painted a wall at Dexee Diner. Ah man, more excellent food! Eating and painting, eating and painting!
It was Maxx's birthday.
That was the first full day. Man, I was tired! That night I just melted into my tiny bed in my tiny room...
