You Make Shibuya

Maki Nomiya and Hideki Kaji are turning into ambassadors for Shibuya — you’ll remember that they’re doing a weekly Shibuya-kei radio show together these days — and on this official Shibuya-ku website, promoting a “You Make Shibuya” campaign, you can listen to a song they made together. Below (photo by Patrick Benny), you can see them on the cover of the Shibuya-ku News free paper (love that Shibuya-ku News logo).

State of Tokyo

State of Tokyo is a rather nice new site by Alex Abian covering the people and places of Tokyo, with beautiful photography throughout. Looks like it’s going to be fun to follow, with coverage of places like Takeo, a tiny little restaurant in Shibuya that is run in the mornings by the pictured Takeo (in the afternoon, it turns into a different restaurant).
