Japan Osaka Shinsaibashi Guitar Pizza

9 March 2012

Shinsaibashi

It almost stopped raining, almost. Not enough to warrant venturing away from covered pedestrian mall area.
The Shinsaibashi thing is very long with mostly shops selling lingerie. Its not really your top level shops like cartier and louis vutton, they tend to be one street over, in the rain, with no customers. Instead theres lots of pachinko places, karaoke lounges and cheaper shops selling nothing I want.
There are however people, and I like to go where theres people, in case something ridiculous might happen.
Tonights ridiculous incident was in the guitar shop. A group of tough guys with slightly longer hair than the normal military style, clip on ear rings and ridiculous clothing were trying out various expensive guitars. Only problem is they were universally terrible. No problem, the photo is more important. Time to comb each others hair into a delicately arranged mess and strike a pose.
Unforunately this occured after the shop owner told me no photos!
