Saturday night party – Microcosmos @djTomoko @Ucca23 @shug0310

 

Microcosmos is this stylish space up the way that while cozy attracts some of the best DJs and talent in the Japanese hip hop scene.

I LOVE @DJtomoko n Ucca-laugh and tonight they also have one of my personal favorites in the Japan DJ scene, DJ Shu-G who’s sets always have me dancing.

*

Also, little known secret, Microcosmos parties have some of the most beautiful and down to earth females you’ll find in Shibuya.  They’re stylish, pretty and usually got jobs!  lol  I’m quoting a friend ;)

Top Tokyo Party Blogger @maisassygirl

 

Ms. Mai is one of those Tokyo people that you’ll see in all your mutual friends photos, hear about from colleagues and clients and then finally meet and think… ‘Wow not what I expected but in a good way.’  :)

*

Undefinable, I am still learning about what it is she does exactly, but simply put from my understanding she produces solid results on products, people, brands and concepts to create buzz, trends and word-of-mouth on anything that she takes under her ‘angel wings’.

*

Ms. Mai is an Asian-American transplant into the Tokyo party community and I never ceased to be amazed by how well she communicates and understands her market and projects without having grown up here or by speaking only a basic level of Japanese.  But what I believe makes her great is exactly that lack prejudice and influence from third party forcing her decision-making process to be dependent on her other senses of sight, sound, taste and touch.  With language being irrelevant she approaches every new venture from a breathtakingly refreshing point-of-view.

*

Her outlook is fun, bubbly but still constructively critical and profound for those able to read behind the lines on her blog or tweets.  On the guest list for every major hot event, close to nearly all the major models in Japanese fashion as well as key celebrities, watching her status grow from blogger to event coordinator to taste maker and soon to be mommy has been voyeuristic pleasure within the Tokyo digital realm for me as well as many others worldwide.

Happy Birthday @DJ_Sugi

 

One of my favorite DJs who I can’t say enough about is having his birthday party tonight!  Looking at the DJ and dancer line-up I know that the party is going to be CRAZY… so jealous that I can’t go :(

*

For those who don’t know, DJ Sugi is one of the best DJs in the South hip hop scene in Japan.  Not only a DJ, he also works as a promoter for his own parties as well as setting up DJs and artists to tour in Japan.  Releasing popular south hip hop mixtapes regularly with exclusive hosting by people like Roscoe Dash and Lil Scrappy, I’m always looking forward to see who he’ll collaborate with next!

*

The party is at Azabu-Juban’s WAREHOUSE702 and I guarantee by 2am EVERYONE will be schwasted, dancing, partying and having a great time.

Happy birthday Sugi-san!

Happy New Year Tokyo — 2012

Well, 2012 finally made it.  There were a few moments during the apocalyptic events of 2011 I was wondering if I should start preparing for life in a cardboard box… or maybe a world filled with people that had limbs growing out of their head but neither happened and for that fact alone I am very thankful.

To recap 2011 would no doubt undermine the significance of the events and people that were part of my life for a fateful year that I will look back to in a year, five years, and at the end of my life as a major turning point in my life.  I walked towards new opportunities, exciting projects and away from distractions, ideas with infinite loose ends.

For those that follow me on twitter, or know me in real life, you’re aware of the ups and downs I experienced, as well as the amazing chances to meet celebrities, innovators, old friends, new friends and a potential love.

And with that in mind I am excited to embrace the turning over of the year.  I strongly believe everything I have succeeded in, challenged myself to try and endured for the greater picture set the foundation of experiences and compassion of heart to move me towards a 2012 filled with happiness, love and excellence.

Thank you for supporting me and I look forward to deepening our relationship as time continues forward.

Mariko
