Ok so Tokyo isn't actually mine. But this little project is.
When I came back from Tokyo last October I found I was completely exhilarated and exhausted by my shopping ventures throughout the city. I shopped so hard I ended up hiring a bicycle since my ankles more or less gave out. I spent all my money and ended up madly transferring from other savings accounts, then just making do with window shopping. I went to so many galleries and design centres that my eyes started to ache from all the looking I was doing, and I wondered if I needed to get my eyes checked. And when I arrived back in Sydney I thought - surely I can share this joy with everyone else! So I am!
My Tokyo is a guide to some of the most unique fashion and design shops in Tokyo. And yes, there are stacks of them. Did I not mention my ankle failure? It's a positively marvellous city to shop in. I've visited, reviewed and mapped everything out so after you get off the plane and dump your empty suitcase, you can head off (wallet in hand) to the best shopping districts and blissfully wander in and out of whatever stores take your fancy.
The guide in its zine form is now sold out (sorry!), but it will soon be gracing the screens of your iPads in its finalemente form - an app! App app hooray!
Enjoy, and be prepared to spend hard. Don't say I didn't warn you.
