Here I am sipping a G&T last night with Matsuri-kei star Doddodo in the Misono Building, a strange labyrinth of countercultural bars (there's one for Gothic Lolitas, one for stuffed rabbit enthusiasts, and so on).



Today I'm heading round the coast in the Daihatsu Naked with Yoyo and Hisae. We'll lunch in Kobe then head across various headlands, spits and peninsulas to Shikoku, lodge somewhere near Takamatsu, then take the first ferry on Saturday morning to Naoshima. Here's the SANAA ferry terminal on that island:

Happy new year!

Matsuri-kei - like it! I missed the original thread about it but those clips seem vaguely reminiscent of Bow wow Wow/Adam and the ants, who were more 'cosmeticized' , 'proto-matsuri-kei' (hey, two can play at this genre-creation game !)

Have a good trip. I'd love to return to Japan, and more so after reading your 'travel reports'

If you have time, see Tadao Ando's Chichu museum . . . .

Naoshima looks to be quite tranquil.

Do you know whether or not the Misono building has a bar for midgets? I always experience great difficulty trying to get up onto normal stools.
