Late start today due to a late night. I had a quick lunch at Jinnan curry before the meetings of the day. Super good curry near Shibuya.
Off to Tokyu Hands to see Shojono Tomo’s installation. Her work is available at Hellion. She makes everything! Kimono, socks, buttons, paintings………etc…
Later that evening I was invited to an exhibition and talk by the artist Oyama Enrico Isamu Letter at Restaurant I in Harajuku. Chef and owner Keisuke Matsushima created food that complimented the art. Matsushima is one of the youngest chefs ever to receive a Michelin star. Enrico aka Oeil and Matsushima hosted a discussion about proliferating image. The event was curated by Plus Art Club. Big thumbs up to this style of art show.
Another plus to this event was Phillip Troussier. I am a soccer fan and this guy is pretty amazing. He also happens to like art.

After the exhibition party I went to my friend Misumi’s birthday party at Hatos Bar. Two of my friends own this place and it’s become my favorite place to meet people in Tokyo. Killer Japanese micro brews and real pit bbq.
Long day, Longer night………
