We took the train from Nagano to Tokyo and then to Yokohama for attending Interstyle.

A pretty big convention for board and outdoor sports.

After running into some of my favorite skateboarders in the elevator and became startstruck as hell, it was time to run off and see my other big hero; Shige.

Always wanted to see his shop. Methim first time 10 years ago before I started tattooing. He has been one of my biggest inspirations since then.

This artwork is going on my wall at home.

Then I met the guys from Yes and Nidecker for some dinner and beer.

I decided to stay one extra day in Yokohama, just because I really like this city better than Tokyo.

The Aloha feeling is strong here.

Even got some skateboarding in the last day before heading back to Tokyo.


While the boys had to work at Interstyle to represent the brand, we went on a little sightseeing tour around Yokohama. 

We saw everything from the tattoo museum and the private collection of Horioshi III to the art museum of Yokohama. Nice weather and good vibes….

The Interstyle was pretty crazy, met a lot of nice people, and it was cool to see all the Yes boards coming out next season.
