Headed back to Tokyo today after a killer time in Osaka. Thanks to Kunjiro and Habuchin for driving all the luggage back while us lazy asses took the bullet train. Whipping through a small village at 400 km’s is pretty damn cool though. We’re winding down the trip with a few more days in Tokyo and a few more bowls of ramen. Gathered tons of footage and photos and had such a good time.
The old guy on the right was bombing these stairs on his bike. He said “I can even do it drunk, in fact I’m drunk right now”
Most of us hit up the ramen at least twice a day. Seriously.
Ted and Toeda (who absolutely kills it by the way)
We skated this mini at a hip hop / death metal show. Weirdness.
Magnus had fun there though.
French waps anyone?
The weirdest spot. So rough and hard to skate, so of course Chris was the only one to get a trick.
Ted and Corey signing in Osaka. Check out the movie premiere-like custom backdrop
These might be Cicadas? Whatever they are, they were crazy loud.
Think photographers wearing earplugs and skaters losing it.
Dikey with a bs 180 over a pole
This kid missed the signing and rolled up with his mom while we were hanging out.
Got himself some time with the guys. So polite. Like any Japanese aren’t though, right?
Last clips without giving too much away. In here: Magnus, me, Corey, Hiro and Toeda.
After some technical trouble, we’re back. We’ve been in Osaka now for three days and counting. Some legendary Japanese spots have been ripped and new gems found. We’ve met up with old friends and met tons of new ones. Big shouts to B7 and their super hospitality - best demo ever. Check the clips below for proof.
Corey mixing up some hentai
Chris bugging out
Corey didn’t have a license for this thing. Sketchy roads too.
The B7 East crew. A demo, a BBQ and big hugs all around.
Hiro handles some business
Epic spot on the way to Osaka. Will mapquest the directions soon. Right…
We had to skate Brazil. The mosquitos were a nightmare.
So we’re on our fourth day in Tokyo and the heat isn’t letting up. Heading out to Nagoya today and then on to Osaka the next… gonna be a lot of driving. Everyone’s having a blast and we thank our Japanese distributors, Yoshio and Kunjiro from Big Wing for the good times.
