THANK YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING

RELOADED PERSPECTIVE -

Pow. Eight days in Tokyo goes by like the blink of an eye. This was my first trip to Japan and it opened my eyes in ways I never could have imagined. Creatively I’ve amassed over three thousand reference images ranging from retail build-outs to graphics to buttons and zippers and everything else along the way. The Japanese have a devotion to aesthetics and presentation that anyone, designer or not, should be
able to appreciate.

In a sea of people like this one.

Even their subway ticket machines have a button you can press to have a magical technician pop out and help you with your purchase.

At the local flea market people sell their well kept possessions in an orderly and hassle free environment.

The blooming of the Cherry Blossom represents the beginning of Spring.

Which was appreciated by everyone at the local temple seeing as how this was the first time in weeks the temperature had gone above 15 degrees Celsius. I read on Greg Mishka’s twitter that it was snowing when he was here two weeks ago, so I guess I lucked out in that department.

These ladies at the temple didn’t like their fortunes so they just tied ‘em up to the pole and picked up another.

Unfortunately for me…

Matty’s probably drooling over these Tuna right now. Only the best of the best fish from around the world make it to the Tokyo fish market. A catch like his might fetch upwards of $150,000.
